The four day long concert event of the summer has arrived, with a slew of big names from a wide variety of musical genres. Taking place in the eventful downtown Tempe scene, Summer Ends Music Festival itself will be held at Tempe Beach Park.

The concert kicks off Thursday with indie-rock’s latest sensation Hozier who’s single “Take Me To Church” earned him a Grammy nomination along with tons of airplay. Friday’s headliner is alternative rock band who’s been quiet in recent years. Brand New, whose highest charting album Daisy, released in 2009, is finally recording a follow up to it. J. Cole, Saturday’s headliner, has had quite the success, with his mixtapes receiving as much praise as his album of which his most recent, “Forest Hills Drive,” just surpassed a million copies sold. Sunday’s headliner, honest and theatrical Kanye West whose mouth does as much talking as it does rapping, will take the stage with his 21 Grammy Awards to back his musical talent up. His most recent album “Yeezus,” however, was outsold by “Born Sinner,” J. Cole’s sophomore album. The full lineup is below.
