The series takes a whole new approach to the summer festival scene. Each of the three headliners has personally curated a line-up of supporting acts that will play sets prior to their respective main acts – all on the same stage with no time conflicts.

LCD Soundsystem has chosen James XX, Idles, Big Freedia, and L’Rain for their support. The stage will be warmed up for Steve Lacy by James Blake, Toro Y Moi, and Fousheé. boygenius—a supergroup trio made up of Phoebe Bridgers, Lucy Dacus, and Julian Baker—has tapped Clairo, Dijon, and Barteees Strange.

A release for the event reads: “The concept provides artists a respite from the cookie-cutter summer itinerary of sheds and amphitheaters, while fans get a leisurely day that features full sets from every artist, on one stage with no conflicts.”

The concert series will take place over four weekends in June. Each show day will feature three different concerts in three different cities all in the same region, meaning fans in all 12 cities—Atlanta, Bay Area, Boston, Chicago, Columbus, Dallas, L.A., Nashville, New Orleans, New York, San Diego and Washington, D.C.—will eventually able to see every artist on the line-up.

In addition to music, there will be a “community-focused” experience at each venue featuring food and drinks from local restaurants, bars, and breweries.

“We challenged ourselves to conceive an event that would give both the artists and the fans a different experience,” said Gary Gersh, president of global touring and talent at AEG Presents. “At the end of the day, they both want the same thing: great locations, incredible sound, fantastic sightlines, and the best local options for food and drinks. Re:SET is a very fairly priced, artist-driven weekend where you can hang with friends and enjoy an evening of amazing music.”

Registration for ticket presale will begin on Tuesday, Feb. 7, and will run through Thursday, Feb, 9. Public on sale will then pick up on Feb. 10 at 10 a.m. local time. Sign up for the presale, HERE.
