Pitbull can't get enough of Los Angeles.

Two days after he played the Hollywood Bowl with Kesha -- in a concert The Times' August Brown called "a fire hose of raved-up singles, crotch-swinging guitar solos [and] Spanglish salaciousness" -- the Miami-based rapper announced he'll return to town to co-headline the H2O Music Festival, set to go down Aug. 17 at L.A. State Historic Park.

Other performers on the bill, assembled by the Spanish-language broadcaster Univision, include A Tribe Called Quest, Big Boi, Prince Royce, Frankie J, "American Idol" alum Jessica Sanchez and Inglewood native Becky G.

Univision launched H2O in 2012 with Snoop Dogg, Wisin & Yandel, John Legend and Paulina Rubio, among others.

The festival will play the State Historic Park the weekend before FYF Fest brings a punkier lineup -- including Yeah Yeah Yeahs and My Bloody Valentine -- to the space near Chinatown.
