Racing horses are posting earnings in the South trying to notch a spot in the Triple Crown, which means it’s time gear up for the Preakness. In Baltimore, of course, we’re also interested in what’s going to happen off the track. Some of the musical acts for the InField Festival were announced Wednesday, bringing visions of Pimlico into our heads.

According to Pimlico’s owners, this year’s festival will be headlined by country star Sam Hunt. He’s scored some hits with “Leave the Light On” and “House Party” that prove he’s loved beyond the Nashville fanbase.

Pop-punk band and Maryland natives Good Charlotte will play another stage, along with a pair of country duos in Locash (featuring Baltimore native Chris Lucas) and High Valley.

If you’re not satisfied with the lineup, the Baltimore Sun reports one more mainstage act is still to be announced.

In the meantime, start getting those hats ready and spending some time preparing to fight back against the annual torrent of takes on why the Preakness shouldn’t be in Baltimore anymore.
