After a two-year hiatus, the art and music festival known as Feels is back. And the lineup does not disappoint.

At an announcement party yesterday at the UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive — which in and of itself featured a strong lineup of local talent, including performances/DJ sets from Toro y Moi, Spellling, and Fela Kutchii — organizers announced the partial lineup for Feels VI, which will take place June 16 at the Craneway Pavilion in Richmond.

Music performers will include a mix of local and national acts, including Princess Nokia, Mykki Blanco, Bbymutha, Lonnie Holley, Yves Tumor, Queens D.Light, Rexx Life Raj, Spellling, ALLBLACK, B-Side Brujas, Siri, Fela Kutchii, Shruggs, and Namaste Shawty.

For the art portion, expect to see work by Chaz Bear (aka Toro y Moi), Lonnie Holley, Yetunde Olagbaju, Dicko Chan, Sofia Cordova, Jeff Cheung & Unity, House of Malico, Muzae Sesay, Ali Madigan, Azha Luckman, Rewina Beshue, David Huffman, and Sadie Barnette.

The event, which is organized by local online arts magazine Wine & Bowties, will be produced in partnership with BAMPFA and Youth Radio.

General admission early-bird tickets, which cost $30, are on sale now. (VIP costs $100.) Prices increase as it gets closer to the date.
