It seems one music festival at Tempe Beach Park in six months wasn't enough for Lucky Man Concerts -- on Saturday the promoter announced another event, the Pot of Gold Music Festival, on March 13-15 and March 17.

That's right, four days of music.

And the lineup is pretty massive, as well.

The festival orients around St. Patty's Day (Tuesday, March 17), though the bulk of the music will happen the weekend before the holiday. Flogging Molly, which Lucky Man has brought to Phoenix for a string of St. Patrick's Day shows, will not be at this year's festival.

Electronic music dominates the first night, which features Bastille, Awolnation, Girl Talk and Chromeo.

Hip-hop and reggae spell out the second night of the festival, with Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, Slightly Stoopid, and Dirty Heads all performing.

Sunday presents a slew of pop-punk and electronic indie, with Fall Out Boy, Rebelution, and Milky Chance all appearing on the bill. Sunday also features Echosmith, the only female-fronted act out of the 27 acts appearing at the festival.

When St. Patrick's Day finally rolls around, Korn, Godsmack, and Chevelle will all play.

All in all, it's a monstrous lineup full of radio-friendly acts. Let's hope for better weather than what happened at Lucky Man's Summer Ends Music Festival, which got rained out of Tempe Beach Park after just one day.

Single-day tickets go on sale on Friday, October 31, at 10 a.m. The first 500 tickets for each day are $29, then the next 500 will be $39, and the rest will be $49. Visit www.potofgoldmusicfestival.com for more information.

Here's the full lineup:

Friday, March 13 Bastille Awolnation Girl Talk Bleachers Chromeo Future Islands Joywave

Saturday, March 14 Kendrick Lamar Slightly Stoopid Schoolboy Q Dirty Heads Kongos Expendables Tribal Seeds Grieves Air Aer

Sunday, March 15 Fall Out Boy Rebelution Milky Chance New Politics Echosmith Big Data Knox Hamilton Katastro
