After two years at the Half Street Fairgrounds, the popular hip-hop and electro festival Trillectro is moving to at RFK Stadium's festival grounds -- a much larger setting for the popular day-long concert. But last month's announcement focused on the new venue, not the artists who'd be performing there on August 23.

Trillectro has finally released the lineup, and it's an impressive one that manages to effortlessly hop between genres: Migos, the Georgia hip-hop trio whose sizzling "Versace" was one of the singles of 2013; "Harlem Shake" creator and club producer Baauer; rising singer SZA, whose sound fuses spacy R&B and glossy '80s synthpop; one-time Kanye protege Big Sean; and D.C.'s own Fat Trel, one of the most compelling voices on the local hip-hop scene.

(The full bill, with audio clips, is available on the Trillectro site.)

Tickets are currently $49 for early bird general admission, which will rise to $69 closer to the festival. VIP passes, which offer such amenities as a private viewing area, an "exclusive" photo booth and a cell phone charging station, are $115, and will rise to $130.
