Israel’s summer concert lineup just keeps on getting better.

The latest famous name on the list is Lana Del Rey, who just announced she’ll be performing August 20 in Tel Aviv’s Park Hayarkon.

According to Haaretz, tickets will range from 400 shekels ($116) for standing room to 1,000 shekels for seats closer to the stage. Tickets go on sale Wednesday at 8 a.m.

The “Born to Die” singer will be closing an impressive concert season, which starts June 4 with The Rolling Stones, followed by Passenger (June 10), The Pixies (June 17), Hugh Laurie (July 7), Neil Young (July 17), Paul Anka (July 24) and the Backstreet Boys (July 29).

And let’s not forget Justin Timberlake, who may play a song or two if his Twizzler needs are satisfied.

Summertime Sadness”? Sounds like anything but.
