Justin Bieber is seeking a delay in his trial, scheduled to begin next month, on Florida charges of driving under the influence, resisting arrest and driving with an expired license.

The 20-year-old pop singer’s lawyers filed a motion Monday saying they need more time to prepare their case. Bieber’s trial is set for May 5 in Miami.

The motion says prosecutors do not oppose a delay. A scheduling hearing is set for today.

Bieber was arrested Jan. 23 in Miami Beach after what police described as an illegal street drag race. He wasn’t charged with drag racing.

Festival taps acts

Eminem and Outkast are headlining another music festival.

The rap acts will perform at the Austin City Limits Music Festival in October in Austin, Texas. Pearl Jam, Skrillex, Beck and Lorde will also take the stage at the 13th annual festival in Zilker Park.

Lana Del Rey, Calvin Harris, Foster the People, Broken Bells, The Replacements, Iggy Azalea, the Avett Brothers and Zedd are also slated to perform.

The three-day event will feature eight stages. It will take place over two weekends, kicking off Oct. 3 and Oct. 10. Three-day passes cost $225. Single-day tickets will go on sale later.

Eminem and Outkast are also headlining the Lollapalooza festival in Chicago in August.
