Lizzo

Since the Maha Festival Saturday headliner released her newest album, Cuz I Love You, it’s been blowing up — even topping Beyoncé on the Billboard charts. She’s recently made some very memorable performances on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the MTV Movie & TV Awards, and more. She also slayed at South By Southwest, and commanded the crowd at Coachella. Her message? Body positivity, self-love, and confidence.

JENNY LEWIS

The Maha Festival Friday headliner’s new album, On the Line, is a real gem. She worked with stars like Beck, Ringo Starr, Don Was, Benmont Tench, and Jim Keltner on the record, and it’s been met with major critical acclaim. We can’t stop humming the latest single, “Wasted Youth.”

MATT AND KIM

With a brand new album out, a reputation for some of the most energetic concerts you’ll ever witness, and a message of positivity, Matt and Kim are the official power couple of Maha 11. They positively slayed at Maha in 2013, so it was the obvious choice to have them back on the main stage to slay once more.
