In addition, the all-girl rock band The Linda Lindas will perform. The group gained attention after a video of them playing “Racist, Sexist Boy” went viral on social media, earning praise from Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello and Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea, among others. Their debut album, Growing Up, was released in 2022 to positive reviews, and they have since performed at Coachella and the Scripps National Spelling Bee.
