Get ready for round three of the Springtime of Youth music festival.

The University of Arkansas’ Headliners Concert Committee will host the third annual event on Saturday, April 29 at the Washington County Fairgrounds in Fayetteville.

The event debuted in 2015 as part of an alternative to the committee’s typical semester concerts held at Barnhill Arena. The inaugural festival took place over two consecutive days in 2015, but was converted to a single-day event in 2016.

The lineup for 2017 has not yet been revealed, but announcements are expected in late February and early March. Past performers have included Diplo, Wiz Khalifa, Børns, Mutemath, Moxie Raia, MisterWives, and others.

The event is free for UA-Fayetteville students, but tickets are required. Students can reserve tickets beginning in early April, with some public tickets available for purchase coming shortly after that.
