Forest Hills Stadium’s last hoorah of the summer will occur this upcoming Saturday.

Flume, a popular EDM artist who has worked with acts like Lorde and Diclosure, will be headlining his third concert performance as part of a nearly five-month world tour. The Australian’s most recent hit, “Never Be Like You” just went platinum.

Saturday night’s lineup also includes Shlohmo, Ryan Hemsworth and Chrome Sparks.

The concert starts at 5:30 pm and doors open at 5 pm. And due to a canceled City Winery Open that was originally scheduled this September, the next event taking place at Forest Hills Stadium will be the Freak Out Let’s Dance festival in October.
