Lionel Richie, Jack White, Kanye West, and Elton John are set to headline the 2014 Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival this summer, organizers announced.

John will headline the closing day of the 13th annual festival. Through a recorded segment aired on a crystal ball, John said it will be his “first American festival ever.”

The four-day music and art festival in Manchester, Tennessee kicks off June 12th and runs through the 15th. It includes 150 performances on 10 stages.

The Bonnaroo Lineup Announcement Megathon – better known as BLAM! – was streamed online Wednesday night and available to Xbox users.

It was hosted by “Saturday Night Live” cast member Taran Killam and included music by The Flaming Lips and Ben Folds.

Bonnaroo is among the top live music gatherings of the year, much like the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in California and the Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts in Britain.

Tickets for Bonnaroo go on sale Feb. 22.
