Organizers of the March Madness Music Festival have announced headliners for the Dallas block party, and you've probably heard of a few of them: The free Dallas shows, which will take over the former site of Reunion Arena during the first weekend in April, will include performances by the Killers, fun., Tim McGraw and Jason Aldean, and will be capped off by Bruce Springsteen and his E Street Band on Sunday night.

The events won't be ticketed and will be first-come, first-serve -- so, you know, chaos. The three-day festival starts at 4 p.m. Friday and continues all day Saturday, when the NCAA Tournament semifinal games will be broadcast live. They'll close out Sunday night. The title game is that Monday.
