The Billboard Hot 100 Festival released its plans Monday to transform Nikon at Jones Beach Theater into multi-stage festival grounds for the event on Aug. 22 and 23.

With headliners Nicki Minaj, The Weeknd, Lil Wayne, Axwell & Ingrosso and Skrillex set for the main stage, dozens of newcomers will take over the Beach Stage -- the first time a stage will be placed on the shore west of the amphitheater -- and the Trending 140 Stage, set east of the venue. A festival village will be home to merchandise and food vendors and will be located in the area usually reserved for concessions.

Fetty Wap, New Politics, American Authors and Santigold are part of the eclectic lineup set for those stages.

Tickets for the two-day festival are $194 and are available through Ticketmaster. For more information, go to hot100fest.com.
