Seattle rap duo Macklemore and Ryan Lewis will headline the inaugural Boonstock music festival in Penticton, organizers announced Tuesday.

Other top-billed acts include City and Colour, Armin van Buuren and Rise Against, plus dozens of other electronic and dance acts for the four-day festival that begins July 31.
