The University of Arkansas’ Springtime of Youth Concert scheduled for Saturday will move indoors due to the threat of inclement weather, officials announced on Wednesday.

The event, originally scheduled at the Washington County Fairgrounds, will instead take place at Bud Walton Arena beginning at 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 30.

The event will be headlined by musician and actor Dominic Fike (Euphoria) and rapper Princess Nokia, along with DJ San Holo and alt-pop act Between Friends.

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

Past performers include Kesha, Galantis, Bleachers, Lil Dicky, Big Sean, Young the Giant, Caitlyn Smith, Diplo, Wiz Khalifa, Børns, Mutemath, Moxie Raia, MisterWives, and others.

Doors open at 3 p.m., and music starts shortly after that.

Tickets are free for students, and are being distributed today (Wednesday, April 27) on a first-come, first-served basis in the Anne Kittrell Art Gallery on the 4th floor of the Arkansas Union from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. while supplies last.

Tickets to the public are also available. Prices are $30 for general admission, on sale via the Walton Arts Center website.
