In this first-round drop, Kendrick Lamar, N.E.R.D, Skrillex, Vampire Weekend, CHVRCHES, Jack Johnson, MGMT, Odesza, Years & Years, Anderson .Paak & the Free Nationals, Carla Thomas, Greensky Bluegrass, Hothouse Flowers, tUnE-yArDs, James Bay, Superorganism and Western Caravan are officially set to rock the fest's twenty-first edition at Japan's Naeba Ski Resort this summer.
