UR Concerts announced on Wednesday that indie pop group Matt and Kim is set to headline this year’s Springfest on Dandelion Day, contrary to perennial suspicions that late ‘90s band Smash Mouth would perform.

The pop group was formed in 2004 in Brooklyn.

One of their most popular songs, “Daylight,” has been featured on several commercials and can be heard on several televisions shows, like “Entourage” and “Community.”

The group has performed on both “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.” And they will be performing at Coachella this year on April 16 and April 24. They have released five albums to date, and all of which are available for streaming on Spotify.

There will be two opening acts for this year’s concert. Apollo, an electronic music set, will go onstage at 7 p.m., and Super Defense, the opening band for Matt and Kim, will go on at 7:30 p.m.. Matt and Kim are expected to go onstage at 8:30.

Dandelion Day will kick off this Friday at 2 p.m.
