University Union announced its lineup for Mayfest and Khalid is the main act. I am so so excited about this as he is one of my favorite artists and I have seen him once before at the Boston Calling Music Festival.
Khalid is a phenomenal performer, singer, and dancer and has a huge fan base all around the world. He got famous from one of his big hit songs "Location", you've probably heard it and since then has continued to top the charts with songs like "American Teen" and "Young, dumb, and broke". He just released a new album a couple of weeks ago featuring songs like "Better" and "Saturday Nights".
He will be one of three acts performing at BlockParty which is a concert held in the Carrier Dome after MayFest which is held in Walnut Park and they have smaller bands perform. The other two acts performing are Rico Nasty and Kenny Beats. All three are amazing singers and it is bound to be a night to remember, MayFest is more similar to a music festival where BlockParty will be more similar to a concert. This is an awesome day at Syracuse and everyone has fun every year when they go. It is one last celebration before everyone goes back home for the summer. It is right before finals too which will allow for the remaining two weeks of school to be used for studying and packing up all your belongings.
Tickets went on sale on Wednesday at 12:00 and thought there were many technical difficulties with the website, I was still able to get a floor ticket. I believe at this point all of the floor tickets in the presale are sold and general admission is still available. Tickets go on sale to the public on Monday. Regular tickets are being sold for $20 and floor tickets are being sold for $25!!
I am super excited and hope to see you all there!
