Kygo has been announced as the headliner of the Forbes' 2022 Under 30 Summit music festival.

The fest will take place virtually and in-person in Detroit between October 2nd and 5th at the Detroit Opera House. It's renowned for drawing some of the biggest names in contemporary music, such as The Chainsmokers, Jack Harlow, Billie Eilish, and Megan Thee Stallion, among others.

This year's event, however, is a bit different. It'll include a performance from prodigious bass player and indie-pop star Blu DeTiger, who's set to embark on her North American headline tour this fall.

Meanwhile, Kygo announced that he has a new album in the works back in August.
