The wait is over. The line-up for CU’s annual WelcomeFest was just revealed and it looks like this is going to be another great concert.
Every year, the CU Program Council hosts a free welcoming concert for new and returning students. The event’s become known for breaking acts before they hit nationally, and past year’s featured sets by 3OH!3, Pretty Lights, Girl Talk and Asher Roth.
This year’s concert takes place Aug. 21 on CU’s Farrand Field and features MTV buzz band Chiddy Bang. The alternative hip-hop duo mashes up rap and pop sampling into its mix to create the ultimate dance party.
The concert will also host sets by the electro-jam band Pnuma Trio, rapper XV and local band Air Dubai.
WelcomeFest is only open to CU students with a valid Buff 1 card. More information will be available at www.programcouncil.com next week.
