Yeezus is coming to the X Games. The rap god will bless the stage at the inaugural event in Austin this spring.
The sports and music festival will take place on June 5-8 at Circuit of The Americas (COTA) in Austin, Texas.
The G.O.O.D. Music rapper joins a 13-act bill that also includes the Flaming Lips, Pretty Lights, Gary Clark Jr., Mac Miller, Slightly Stoopid, Bad Religion, Dillon Francis, Mayer Hawthorne, Wavves, Cash Cash, and more.
In addition to music, athletes will participate in competitions including BMX, skateboarding, Moto X, and RallyCross.
“X Games Austin 2014, will be a four day sports, music and lifestyle festival,” said ESPN’s Scott Guglielmino. “The best athletes, competing at the highest levels remain the core of X Games. But we’re incredibly excited about being able to create a full-scale festival around that, which celebrates some of the other elements of the X Games lifestyle—music, friends, family, food and fun.”
Tickets for X Games Austin go on sale Friday, January 24 at 1 p.m.
Before he hits the X Games stage, Kanye will resume his “Yeezus Tour,” beginning February 13 in University Park, Pa.
