First it was fun., then it was food trucks.

Now, with the announcement of Jill Scott, Robert Plant, Robin Thicke, Estelle and others joining the lineup, entertainment for the 2013 Taste of Chicago is looking downright delicious.

Wednesday, the city announced the full lineup of music for the Taste, which has shaped up to include a solid mix of R&B, rock, indie pop and hip-hop.

In March, Taste officials teased the entertainment in store by revealing Grammy winners fun. would headline the July 10-14 festival in Grant Park. Other performers on the Taste bill were some of the freshest the festival has had in years — an important move given how badly the annual event has struggled to stay in the black in recent years.

Adding to the more exciting entertainment for a festival that has seen plenty of has-been acts back in the day (cough, Wallflowers), the Taste will also welcome food trucks for the first time ever.

Performances will take place at both the Petrillo Music Shell where tickets are $25 a pop (or free for lawn seating) and at the Bud Light Stage at the southern end of the festival.

Performers for the Bud Light stage include bluesman Lil’ Ed and the Blues Imperials on July 12 followed by rock-soul ensemble the Congregation. Fellow Chicagoans Canasta and Company of Thieves will perform the penultimate day of the fest on July 13. Festival closer Kelly Hogan, a longtime Chicagoan whose 2012 record "I Like To Keep Myself In Pain" brought a huge resurgence in popularity, will play on July 14.

Tickets for the Petrillo Music Shell concerts go on sale May 15.
