The Capitol Hill Block Party's website came to a screeching halt Tuesday as fans waited for lineup updates.

As the website caught up, of a partial list of artists was revealed. The lineup includes headliners Flaming Lips and Girl Talk, alongside local acts such as Hey Marseilles and Fly Moon Royalty.

Block Party organizers are promising more artists will be announced, but tickets for the July 26-28 festival are already available for pre-sale.

If you so desire, paying $75 now for your three day pass will also get you free tickets to Neumos on April 4 to see local act Pickwick and Portland-based Radiation City at the CHBP "Premier Party."

If you need a few extra days to mull over the lineup, just beware, three-day tickets will go up to $95 on April 6.
