President Obama throwing a music festival titled “South By South Lawn” sounds like a headline on The Onion, but it’s realer than universal healthcare with a date already set for Oct. 3.

Perhaps inspired by the real South By Southwest, which POTUS and First Lady Michelle Obama were keynote speakers at earlier this year, South by South Lawn will feature artists with a positive impact on their community and will include film and interactive portions. 

Although the artist lineup hasn’t been announced (Malia Obama is gonna put in a good word for Cashmere Cat), expect some big names as POTUS is a serious music-phile with some great taste having had Beyonce sing at his 2013 Inauguration, hosted a 4th of July BBQ featuring performances by Kendrick Lamar and recently releasing not one, but two Spotify playlists that shows he know’s what’s up.
