Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Fifth Harmony, Prince Royce, DNCE, Fat Joe, Jeremih, Lupe Fiasco, Carl Thomas and Felix da Housecat are among the musical acts slated to perform at the inaugural all-day Get IN It MusicFest, to be held Sept. 16 at noon-10:30 p.m. at Guaranteed Rate Field, which is the home of the Chicago White Sox play, according to The Chicago Sun-Times.
The festival also promises "special surprise celebrity guests and sports figures."
Thanks in part to its marriage-equality anthem "Same Love" ( featuring Mary Lambert ), Macklemore and Lewis won three rap categories and was honored as Best New Artist at the Grammys in January 2014. That event had Queen Latifah officiating a group wedding event with 33 couples of various sexual orientations. ( Madonna then sang a slowed-down version of her 1980s hit "Open Your Heart." )
Tickets are $35-$150, and they go on sale Friday, Aug. 11; visit Ticketmaster.com .
