Preakness Live is a new food, music and art festival running in conjunction with the race. The event is a collaboration between hospitality group 1/st Experience and Kevin Liles, the CEO and chairman of 300 Entertainment and Elektra Music Group.

With the festival, Liles hopes to showcase his hometown of Baltimore and bring a new audience out to the Preakness Stakes.

"What we're building with Preakness Live is a movement, not a moment," Liles said in a statement to Rolling Stone. "As a native son of this great city and a life-long fan of Preakness, I'm so proud to help bring an event of this scale and scope home, creating a cultural milestone both for residents and visitors rediscovering Baltimore's charms."

D-Nice will also perform, along with Brittney Spencer, Darin Atwater & the Soulful Symphony, and WanMor.

Tickets range from $49 to $175.
