Each of the bands will headline a show promoted by New York’s Bowery Presents. Tickets went on sale today. The shows will also be streamed live through Spin‘s website.

“More than a year ago, when we first started thinking about how to celebrate SPIN‘s 25th anniversary, we thought it would be cool to curate a series of concerts featuring some of the great artists that have appeared in the pages of SPIN,” editor Doug Brod said in a statement.

“25 hours of music over five nights seemed like a nice hook, so we partnered with Bowery Presents to realize the dream. We couldn’t be more thrilled with the headliners, and just wait till you see the opening bands!” he added.

The lineup for Spin‘s 25-year bash is listed below.

July 26 – The Smashing Pumpkins at Terminal 5
