Get ready, #RihannaNavy — the #R8 era seems to be just around the corner! After teasing her “American Oxygen” tune last week in a March Madness commercial, Rihanna is now headlining the NCAA’s music festival! Roc Nation revealed the news today (March 16), with other artists set to perform during the event — including Bleachers, Lady Antebellum, Kacey Musgraves and Zac Brown Band.

The sports organization is planning the three-day festival around their big championship game early next month. According to Rolling Stone, there are still performers being added to AT&T’s Block Party on April 3. Rihanna and Bleachers will take the stage that Saturday for the Coke Zero Countdown Concert, while the rest of the artists will entertain the audience on Sunday, April 5 at the Capital One JamFest.

Look out for the performances at Indianapolis’ White River State Park from April 3-5, and they will also be streamed live on the NCAA’s website!
