Looks like you actually have plans this weekend.

If you thought this summer’s music festivals were canceled, think again.

According to Time Out, the video chatting app Houseparty is hosting a three-day, star-studded festival featuring tons of A-list celebrities.

The live, virtual event, In The House, will feature over 40 artists who will sing, cook, dance, workout, and more with you and your friends over the course of the weekend. Musical artists include Katy Perry, John Legend, Idina Menzel, CHVRCHES, DaBaby, and more. There are also segments with entertainers like Keegan-Michael Key, Neil Patrick Harris, and Sarah Michelle Gellar.

You can even take cooking classes with celebrities like Zoey Deschanel, 2 Chainz, and Bad Bunny, as well as top chefs like Roy Choi, Christina Tosi, and Chef Mike. Or, workout with Alicia Keys or Terry Crews. With so many diverse acts and events, this is more than your typical music festival.

And if you want all your friends to enjoy the party with you, you can use the app’s co-viewing feature to create a private viewing party. After all, live music, magic, cooking classes, and workout sessions are way better in groups of your nearest and dearest.

And if you can’t view certain parts of the event when they go live, you can also check them out again later on that day. According to Time Out, the events will re-air 12 hours after their original stream. So, for example, if an event is at 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, it will re-air at 8:30 a.m. on Sunday morning.

In order to tune in, you (and your friends) must download the Houseparty app. The In The House festival will be going on between Friday, May 15, and Sunday, May 17. A full line up of acts, as well as specific times and dates, are on the Houseparty website.
