The lineup for the 2019 Preakness InfieldFest will include a mix of electronic dance music acts like Diplo and rappers like Logic.
Electronic DJs Diplo and Kygo are among the headliners for this year’s InfieldFest, alongside rappers and singers Logic and Juice Wrld. DJs Fisher and Frank Walker will also perform.
Tickets for the May 18 music festival, which accompanies the 144th Preakness Stakes, are available starting at $59 for general admission. Mug Club tickets, which include admission, a souvenir mug and unlimited beer pours, start at $89.
DJ and producer Diplo took home a 2019 Grammy for best dance recording; he has received four other Grammy nominations. He will be joined by Norwegian DJ Kygo and Fisher, an Australian techno producer.
Logic, a Montgomery County native known for his hit single “1-800-273-8255,” will add some local sound to the infield stage, while Chicago-based Juice Wrld will offer hip-hop beats to the crowd.
Canadian DJ Frank Walker has previously performed at InfieldFest and will make his return this spring.
The lineup announcement comes as the group that owns Pimlico Race Course weighs the future of the Preakness in Baltimore. The Stronach Group is considering relocating the middle jewel of horse racing’s Triple Crown instead of pumping more than $400 million into Pimlico to rehab the aging racetrack.
