Major Lazer and the Marley Family Headline Nine Mile Music Festival March 12

Man, Winter Music Conference is only two months away.

But while your club kid cousins are off doing the WMC thing, getting loopy on funny drugs and dancing away their inhibitions, you're gonna be sucking on sweet sticky ish and nodding your dreaded head to righteous vibes at the Marley Family's Nine Mile Music Festival.

Expect Stephen, Damian, Julian, and Ky-mani. Somewhat surprisingly, though, there are a few dancehall and dubstep names in the lineup -- Major Lazer, Mala, Juan Basshead -- that even your neo-raver relatives might dig.

See the cut for the full Nine Mile lineup so far.
