In partnership with Live Nation, Billboard recently announced the lineup for the second annual Hot 100 Music Festival, and it's even bigger than the first one.

For the inaugural 2-day event last year, the entertainment conglomerate brought three stages and a lineup of 40 artists to New York's Jones Beach, attracting over 25,000 attendees. Highlights included performances from Jack Ü and Justin Beiber, Axwell and Ingrosso, The Weeknd, Kygo and Santigold, among others.

And now, Billboard is preparing for an even bigger year. In yesterday's announcement, the music media brand revealed the 2016 headliners which include dance music artists Calvin Harris, Martin Garrix, Audien, Marshmello, Haywyre, NERVO, Madeon and more. These EDM fan favorites join J. Cole, Ariana Grande, Fetty Wap, Rae Sremmurd and AWOLNATION, who also top the lineup. Additional acts will be announced at a later date.

The event will run August 21-22 at The Grounds at Nikon Jones Beat Theater in Long Island, NY. For more info and tickets head over to livenation.com/artists/150552/billboard...
