With just about two months to go before the 20th annual Deep Ellum Arts Festival, organizers couldn't hold back their excitement anymore and released the lineup of artists and bands that will take over the historic neighborhood April 4-6.

As usual, more than 100 bands and musicians will perform on five separate stages along Main Street, with around 200 visual artists setting up camp in between stages to hawk their wares. This year you'll have more time to explore everything, because the festival will be open for three full days.

Among the local bands are relatively big names like Nicholas Altobelli, Brave Combo, Fox & the Bird, The Effinays and The Crazy Ivans. No matter what type of music you like, though, you're bound to find something to enjoy, as the genres include rock, folk, jazz, blues, country, pop, R&B, funk and punk. Check out the full list of bands here, with more to be announced soon.

Visual artists will flock to Deep Ellum from across the country, with representatives coming from 25 different states. One painter, Yoram Gal, will even make the long trek from Tel Aviv, Israel.

In addition to bands and artists, the free festival also includes a variety of food options from area restaurants and food trucks, a pet parade, and more.
