It’s not quite the MTV Video Music Awards, but Great GoogaMooga will still bring some musical insanity to Brooklyn: the annual food-focused festival has announced that the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and the Flaming Lips will be headlining its opening-day concert this year.

And that’s just the start of the lineup for the festival, which takes place May 17-19 in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park. The Darkness will also be joining the Karen O and Wayne Coyne bands for the kick-off concert, and the next day will include performances from Matt & Kim, Father John Misty, Sharon Von Etten, and more. On the final day of the weekend, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, De La Soul, and Cults will be taking the stage.

Put together by Bonnaroo’s organizers and billed as an “amusement park of food, drink, and music,” Great GoogaMooga began last year to mixed reviews. With draws like the Roots and Hall & Oates, last year’s carnival attracted an estimated 40,000 people, causing long lines and short tempers. This year, hopefully, GoogaMooga’s organizers (and attendees) will be better equipped to handle the musical and culinary onslaught.

Take a look at this year’s full music lineup below:
