    Fresh off Coachella 2014 performances, Foster the People have been announced as performers at 91x's X-fest on May 30 at Sleep Train Amphitheatre.

    Well, 91x's stacked X-Fest just got a whole lot bigger.

    This morning, the San Diego rock radio station announced the final three bands set to join their festival lineup on May 30 at Sleep Train Amphitheatre -- who had, until now, been kept secret. Completing the already impressive bill are (drum roll, please): Foster the People, Capital Cities and Ms Mr.

    In what promises to be an unforgettable night for local music fans, this year's X-Fest extravaganza brings some of the hottest and most sought-after acts in arena rock, indie pop and reggae rock together for one day's worth of music goodness. The complete 12-band lineup now includes: 311, Foster the People, Ms Mr, Capital Cities, Panic! At the Disco, Phantogram, Iration, Sir Sly, Bleachers, Kongos, Skaters and Cherub. What more could you ask for? Well, how does $250,000 sound? 

    That's right: Not satisfied to only announce the remaining bands for X-Fest, 91x also announced a contest they're hosting in partnership with Harrah's Resort Southern California, giving listeners a chance to win a $250,000 grand prize at the festival.

    According to the station's press release, "91x will qualify listeners on-air starting today up until the concert date, and one qualifier will be picked to go onstage for a chance to win a quarter-million dollars."

    Where do we sign up? Oh, yeah -- right here.
