The event has been dubbed Justin Bieber & Friends and will include artists like Kehlani, David Guetta, Eddie Benjamin, and TroyBoi. A press release revealed that there would be a second “phase” of acts for the event.

The set would be announced in the coming weeks, and a variety of “special guests” are set to feature. Fans who wish to buy Bieber's weekend passes can get them on the tech startup Pollen.

There are three tiers available, and each of them includes a three-night accommodation and event access for two punters. The passes are priced between $1,099 and $1,399.
