An annual event that draws thousands to the Cleveland Museum of Art to hear exotic bands that normally don’t come through town, Solstice has become the museum’s signature summer event.

Earlier today, the museum announced the lineup for this year’s event, which celebrates its tenth anniversary this year. It takes place at 8 p.m. on Saturday, June 23.

The lineup includes acts such as the Moroccan-born Hatim Belyamani (aka HAT), a guy who makes music based on filming and remixing the sounds and images of his native country’s Arabic, Amazigh and sub-Saharan African origins, and Hello Psychaleppo, the brainchild of young Syrian music producer Samer Saem Eldahr, who draws from dubstep, drum and bass, electro and trip-hop to create “a journey away from boundaries of style.”

The lineup also includes LADAMA, a group of four women from across the Americas who produce pop and soul-infused songs that they sing in Spanish, English and Portuguese and Ravid Kahalani’s Yemen Blues, a band that brings a “polyglot mix of music from Yemen and West Africa.”

New York-based Sxip Shirey, a guy known for using innovative instrumentation and object-oriented compositions, Miho Hatori’s New Optimism, Afro-Canadian singer-songwriter Pierre Kwenders and the collective Undervolt & Co. are also on the bill.

Members receive exclusive access to discounted presale tickets beginning at 9 a.m. on Monday, May 14.

If available, tickets for the public go on sale at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, May 15.
