Yet another big superstar singer has been added to the 2016 March Madness Music Festival at Discovery Green this weekend.

Officials announced that multi-platinum recording artist Kendrick Lamar will perform at Saturday's concert (on April 2). Lamar, whose performance at last month's Grammy Awards drew raves, will join previously announced singers Jason Derulo and Conrad Sewell at the Coca-Cola Music Mix, along with the duo Twenty One Pilots.

On Friday (April 1) Danish pop rock-soul band Lukas Graham will join previously announced Grammy-nominated bands Fall Out Boy and Panic! At The Disco at the AT&T Block Party.

To close out the weekend, Grammy-nominated artist Aloe Blacc will join previously announced superstar acts Maroon 5, Pitbull and Flo Rida at the Capital One JamFest on Sunday (April 3).
