Here's one more reason to buy your tickets to the 2014 Lebowski Fest.

Jeff Bridges & the Abiders will be the headlining act! It was announced on Wednesday that the star of the 1998 cult classic The Big Lebowski will take the stage at the Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles on April 25 to honor the Coen Brothers' hit comedy.

The actor-musician will perform with his bandmates as the fans come far and wide to "drink white Russians, throw some rocks and party with an array of Dudes, Walters and Maudes," according to the festival's website. 

Founded in 2002 in Louisville, Ky., the Lebowski fest is a celebration of all things related to the Coen Brothers' hit film. The event typically consists of a two-day shindig, which begins with a screening of the film and ends with a bowling party the following night.

In addition to Bridges headlining act and the activities for die-hard fans, attendees can expect music from The Kyle Gass Band of Tenacious D fame, additional special guests and feature film memorabilia.

The Lebowski fest has been held in various locations such as New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Las Vegas, Austin, Seattle, London and Edinburgh.

And while the Coen brothers have kept their distance, the "Dude" himself, Mr. Bridges, has made a number of appearances, including his forthcoming show this year!
