All told, there will be over 150 bands in 10 different venues, and today's announcement only covers the first batch of confirmed acts.

Pouzza Fest is currently selling three-day passes for $60 (these don't include access to Club Soda or Metropolis), while pre-sale VIP passes cost $115. You can pick up those up here.
