Lil Uzi Vert, New Politics headline UB Fall Fest 2017

SA announces a slightly diverse lineup for Fall Fest

Trap star Lil Uzi Vert and alt-rockers New Politics will bring a musical mixture to the Student Association’s annual Fall Fest on Sept. 2. 

The announcement, which came via Twitter on Wednesday, also confirmed other acts such as hip-hopper Blackbear as well as OVO-crooner Roy Woods for the show. The show differs from recent years, with the addition of New Politics swaying from Fall Fest’s traditional rap and soul format.

Aside from the fest’s main performers, student and alumni artists and groups will also grace the stage. Bands like Hundred Plus Club along with DJ Frank Pierce are among the six acts supporting the show’s headliners.

Ticket registration opens for undergraduates next Monday, Aug. 21 at 10 a.m. according to SA’s website. Additionally, students can purchase an additional guest ticket for $45 for the show.

After registration, students can pick-up tickets beginning at 10 a.m. on Aug. 28 at the SBI Ticket Office.
