Now in its seventh year, the Cleveland Museum of Art’s Solstice party, which takes place from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. on Saturday, June 20, is usually one of the summer’s hottest tickets. The museum has just announced this year’s lineup and it includes Colombian tropical-psychedelia (Meridian Brothers), modern disco (Escort), Afrobeat (Seun Kuti & Egypt 80), electronica/dance (DJ King Britt), Peruvian electro-tropicalia (Dengue Dengue Dengue!) and electronic music (Afrikan Sciences).

“Solstice is one of the touchstones for the reemergence of the city itself as a cosmopolitan metropolis,” says Tom Welsh, director of performing arts, in a press release. “Having so many amazing artists converge from all over the world for one night at the museum is an absolute thrill.” Tickets for Solstice will go on sale to museum members at 9 a.m. on Monday, May 4, and to the public at 9 a.m. on Monday, May 11. The 8 p.m. entry tickets are available for $65 per person, $45 for museum members. Limited quantities of $30 tickets with an entry time of 10:30 p.m. will also be available. Tickets will be available at
