US Magazine had initially reported that Beyoncé and Jay-Z would take the stage at a hurricane benefit concert at Barclays Center Oct. 17. A representative for Beyoncé denied the story, according to New York Daily News’ Peter Sblendorio.

Well, Queen Bey is not on the lineup, but you never know who might show up to one of these events.

The official lineup includes Kaskade, Chris Brown, Cardi B, Fat Joe, Remy Ma, Daddy Yankee, Yo Gotti, A$AP Ferg, Vic Mensa, Fifth Harmony, Joey Bada$$, Willow Smith, Belly, and Iggy Azalea. Angie Martinez is hosting the concert and special appearances include Rosie Perez and Lin Manuel-Miranda.

Tickets are on sale now. Net proceeds will be donated to organizations that support relief and recovery for those affected by the recent natural disasters. Beneficiaries include Global Giving, All Hands Volunteers, Kids in Need Foundation, Direct Relief, One America Appeal, Greater Houston Community Foundation, American Civil Liberties Union, Miami Community Foundation and more.

The previous two editions of Tidal X were both sell outs, bringing in nearly $1.2 million gross in 2016 and more than $1.1 million gross in 2015, according to Pollstar box office data.
