More performers will be announced.
MECA officials also told Channel 6 News that there will be some changes in comparison to last year's Red Sky events.
The festival has been shortened from 6 days to 5. And the music in the parking lots/festival grounds won't start until later in the day to keep the crowd out of the noon day sun.
Last year, music began around the lunch hour. On the first day of the event, the heat index reached 114-degrees.
The festival grounds are located in parking lot B just east of the CenturyLink Center. The headliners perform at TD Ameritrade Park.
