Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Fifth Harmony, Prince Royce and Lupe Fiasco are among the headlining acts taking the stage for an anti-violence festival at Guaranteed Rate Field this fall. 

The Get IN It Music Fest will take over the home of the White Sox on Sept. 16. Also among the headlining acts are DNCE, Fat Joe, Jeremih, Carl Thomas, Felix da Housecat and “special surprise guests.”

The event benefits Get IN Chicago, a nonprofit network of organizations focused on preventing violence among Chicago’s youth. 

Ticket prices range from $35-$150 and will be available to the public on Ticketmaster beginning Aug. 11. 

“We are very excited to launch this new endeavor with Get IN It MusicFest,” said Anthony J. O’Neill, CEO of the Illinois Sports Facilities Authority, which is putting on the music event. “We feel the range of artists will draw concert goers and fans to the stadium from all over the city. Illinois Sports Facilities Authority has a long history of presenting successful concerts, festival and other events, and for the first time, we are producing events ourselves.”
