Billy Joel, Mumford & Sons, Deadmau5 and Kendrick Lamar will headline this year’s Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Manchester, Tenn.

North America’s largest camping event runs 24 hours a day from June 11 to 14, with more than 125 bands and 20 comedians on 12 stages.

Tickets are $299.50-$324.50 through Bonnaroo.com and go on sale at noon Saturday.
