NBC’s Today show is getting ready to pack the plaza — for the 20th summer in a row — for the Toyota summer concert series. The lineup was announced this morning via Snapchat, and it’s all about that bass.

The shows kick off May 22 with Meghan Trainor in her first Rockefeller Plaza performance. Others include Jennifer Lopez, Flo Rida and Alan Jackson.
