The Cincinnati Funk Fest has announced their lineup, and it’s every bit as neo-soul as we thought it would be.

Headlining the epic showcase will be Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Erykah Badu, alongside a few friends.

Joining Badu are hip-hop artists Yasiin Bey (formerly Mos Def) and Talib Kweli. Hopefully, the two lyricists will be performing a few tracks together as they recently announced new music from their Black Star collective is in the works.

Oother acts on the bill include Lauren Eylise, Hi Tek, Kameron Corvet and Speed Walton.

The 2018 Cincinnati Funk Fest takes place on April 27 at the US Bank Arena in Ohio. Tickets for the music festival range in price from $63 for upper level seating to $124 for floor access.
