The second annual Dusk Music Festival in October is bringing rapper Big Sean in as headliner with a supporting cast that includes the Chicago electronica duo Louis the Child, the German alternative rock/folk group Milky Chance and the veteran DJ/turntablist/actor-comedian Dj Jazzy Jeff.

Big Sean is apparently working on new music with mentor Kanye West, according to Los Angeles radio station Power 106, which interviewed the artist last weekend at its radio festival.

More acts are sure to be added before the Dusk festival, which was moved from the late October date of the inaugural 2016 event to Oct. 6-7 for the sophomore festival.
