The 3rd annual Hop Jam Craft Beer and Music Festivalannounced its 2016 lineup Monday which included a familiar indie band as the headliner.

The Hanson brothers’ festival paired with the McNellie’s Group is set to be in the Brady Arts District in downtown Tulsa on May 22. More than 60 breweries will be on site for the event. The breweries represent more than 20 states and 10 countries.

One change for this year’s festival is the headliner, which is usually the trio of brothers. For this year, though, the band Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros will be the headlining act.

"We're really proud of the awesome lineup of artists and brewers joining the festival, all of whom will help to make it the best Hop Jam yet", said co-founder Taylor Hanson. "Headlining the first two years was exhilarating, but playing a different role this year is equally exciting for us."

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros previously toured with Mumford and Sons during the Gentleman of the Roads festival that stopped in Guthrie in 2013.

The Hop Jam festival will use funds raised to donate to the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma through a raffle of a custom-made Hop Guitar.
