Listen: we're all fans of hoagies. But it seems like Philadelphia natives Daryl Hall and John Oates have taken their love for the doughy sandwich to the next level. On Friday (March 10), the duo announced the first annual HoagieNation Festival in, you guessed it, Philly.

Teaming with Live Nation, Hall & Oates are celebrating the best in Philly's music and food on May 27 at Festival Pier at Penn’s Landing. While Hall & Oates will make your dreams come true as the headliners, G. Love & Special Sauce, Vivian Green, Marah, Son Little, Allen Stone, Kandace Springs, and more will also provide musical bliss. Tears for Fears, who are going on tour with Hall & Oates starting May 4, will perform too.

“Philly is famous for a lot of things, but the highlights just might be the amazing music and of course the hoagie!” Oates said in a statement. “Well we are going to put it all together for you on May 27th at the Daryl Hall and John Oates HoagieNation Festival. This will be the first, this will be historic, and you need to be there.”
