Following the most recent announcement, in mid-January, the leaders of the Mission Creek Music Festival announced an additional list of performing acts on Wednesday.

Kimya Dawson, Caroline Smith & the Goodnight Sleeps, and Lulacruza will join some of Iowa City's favorite performers in this year's festival.

The Mission Creek Festival is an annual cultural explosion of music, literature, art, and food. This year's event will take place downtown from March 27 through April 1.

Dawson is most well-known for the film Juno, in which her songs are a large part of the Grammy-winning soundtrack. Dawson is a singer/songwriter, a solo performer, and half of the group the Moldy Peaches.

Caroline Smith & the Goodnight Sleeps is a band with a whimsical folk and indie-rock sound. The group recently released its sophomore album, Little Wind.

The other new addition is the South American duo Lulacruza. The band will bring its electronic folk sound that combines musical genres and creates distinct music.
