Bulldog Bash 2017 is roughly a month away and event officials revealed the headlining act on Twitter via YouTube video on Saturday.

American dance-rock band DNCE will be the feature performer for the event, which is scheduled to take place on Friday, Sept. 15.

The group is best known for its debut single “Cake by the Ocean,” which was released in September 2015. DNCE released its self-titled debut album in November 2016.

This year, the day of events will be housed on Main Street instead of in the Cotton District.

The market portion of the day will take place from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. During that time period, many shops and restaurants on Main Street will be open to welcome in the market attendees and extra foot traffic.

The concert portion of the event will begin at 7 p.m.
