Already-announced headliners for the three-day concert festival at the MidFlorida Amphitheatre include the newly reunited Outkast, Vampire Weekend and Foster the People. There are 41 bands booked to play the festival from May 2 to 4, which will also features carnival-style thrill rides, food trucks and beer gardens at the Florida State Fairgrounds.
