The Lumineers and Twenty One Pilots are set to headline X-Fest in 2016.

Halsey, Vance Joy, Arkells, July Talk, AWOLNATION, Jake Bug and Wintersleep are among other artists scheduled to perform.

The two-day alternative music festival will be held at Fort Calgary on September 3 and 4.

Last year, X-Fest was cancelled at the last minute due to heavy rain which had turned the venue into a muddy mess. Organizers said the adverse weather had “created an unsafe environment.”
