Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell Williams, Janelle Monae, and Earth, Wind & Fire lead the list of music artists who will perform during NBA All-Star weekend in New Orleans, according to Billboard.

Lamar is first up and set to perform during All-Star Saturday, the Feb. 15 event that includes the Skills Challenge, Three-Point Contest and Slam Dunk Contest. The rapper will run through his set prior to the dunk contest.

The next day, Pharrell will perform and then lead the All-Star player introductions before the main event.

The All-Star Game's halftime show will be a nod to the host city of New Orleans. Earth, Wind & Fire are tabbed to perform in a collaboration with Monae, Dr. John, Gary Clark Jr. and Trombone Shorty and his band, Orleans Avenue. Clark will also sing the National Anthem, while Serena Ryder will perform "O Canada" prior to the All-Star Game.

Last year, the All-Star Game performances included Alicia Keys, Ne-Yo and a Fall Out Boy collaboration with 2 Chainz.
