Summer might feel a ways away, but don’t wait to nab tickets to the 2015 season of Tanglewood, the BSO’s annual summertime musical oasis in Lenox, Mass.

Tickets for Tanglewood 2015 go on sale this weekend, and there are some fantastic pop headliners slated for this season.

James Taylor and his All-Star Band will perform on July 4 this year. Considering his Fenway show in August is already sold out, fans had better have their credit cards at the ready when tickets go on sale Saturday morning at 10 a.m.

Then on Sunday, the rest of the season will also go on sale for shows starring Sheryl Crow, Diana Krall, Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga, and more. Some will roll their eyes about Idina Menzel, who will perform in late August, but Frozen snafus aside, one cannot deny that the Broadway queen has a voice to be reckoned with. The star of Rent, Wicked, and If/Then will perform a mix of songs at Tanglewood ranging from classic pop, to musical theater, to her personal repertoire.

Here’s Tanglewood’s full popular artists lineup for 2015:

Sheryl Crow with the Boston Pops
June 19

Diana Krall’s “Wallflower” Tour

“A Prairie Home Companion” at Tanglewood with Garrison Keillor
