Triller has announced the musical lineup supporting the upcoming fight card headlined by the boxing match between YouTube celebrity Jake Paul and retired UFC competitor Ben Askren.

The show takes place at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on April 17.

The list of artists scheduled to perform include Justin Bieber, The Black Keys, Doja Cat, Saweetie, Diplo, Major Lazer, and the first appearance of hip-hop supergroup Mt. Westmore featuring Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, Too $hort and E-40.

“From The Black Keys to Justin Bieber, Diplo to Doja Cat, and a special segment by Snoop Dogg and the biggest legends in hip-hop, we have the wide-ranging lineup that will help break records for this four-quadrant PPV event on April 17th,” Triller co-founder Bobby Sarnevesht said in a statement.

“Triller has drawn from all its resources in the music world to deliver as epic a music event as ever there was.”

This will be the second fight card produced by Triller after a successful event this past November as Mike Tyson returned from retirement where he engaged in an exhibition bout against Roy Jones Jr. That card also featured numerous musical acts including an appearance by Snoop Dogg, who also served as a guest commentator on the broadcast that night. The event reportedly sold over one million pay-per-view buys.

The entertainment portion of the April 17 card will be produced by Emmy winner Bert Marcus, who describes his plans for the show to be “unlike anything anyone has seen, think Stranger Things meets Tarantino.”

The musical performances will take place throughout the card that also features former UFC heavyweight champ Frank Mir in his boxing debut against two-division boxing champion Antonio Tarver.

The four-hour event will be broadcast on pay-per-view available through television pay-per-view or FITE TV with a $49.99 price tag. The card is scheduled to kick off at 9 p.m. ET.
