Public tickets are now on sale for Springtime of Youth, a one-day music festival organized by the University of Arkansas.

This years’ event will include performances by pop singer Bazzi, rapper Rico Nasty, indie pop artists Cults and Echosmith, and locals Squash Garden, Ozark Riviera, and Leyton Robinson. The event will take place on Saturday, April 20 in the parking lot at Baum-Walker Stadium.

Bazzi, who is headlining this year’s event, is best known for his 2017 viral song, Mine that peaked at No. 11 on the US Billboard Hot 100. Rico Nasty also gained popularity online with the success of her tracks Smack a Bitch andPoppin’ that spread on YouTube in 2018. 

Springtime of Youth 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 Faye Webster, Grouplove, Kesha, Galantis, Bleachers, Lil Dicky, Big Sean, Young the Giant, Caitlyn Smith, Diplo, Wiz Khalifa, Børns, Mutemath, Moxie Raia, MisterWives, Dominic Fike, and others.

Tickets are free for UA students, and are available to reserve here.
