University Union announced Friday the lineup for this year’s Juice Jam Music Festival, which will feature co-headliners A$AP Ferg and Playboi Carti with support from Loud Luxury, Anne-Marie and Omar Apollo.

Gates for the event will open 12:15 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 16, at Skytop Field.

Much like last year’s Juice Jam’s eclectic mix of music artists, this year’s concert aims to offer something for everyone.

A$AP Ferg is no ordinary rapper, rising from Harlem’s A$AP mob alongside A$AP Rocky to make a name for himself. He’s the man behind epic remix “Work” and certified platinum hit “Plain Jane,” which landed at No. 6 on the Billboard 200. Catch up with his most recent series of collaborative singles: “Kristi” with Denzel Curry, IDK, and NickNack, and “Moon River” with actress Elle Fanning.

Playboi Carti‘s career sprung from the Atlanta hip-hop underground. The fellow A$AP mobber’s  singles “Magnolia” and “wokeuplikethis” embody his hook-heavy sound.  Last summer he played to sold-out crowds on his debut headlining world tour, including festival appearances at Rolling Loud and Coachella.

The House and R&B duo behind Loud Luxury, Andrew Fedyk and Joe De Pace, is known for their dance-worthy creations. Expect to hear their signature remixes of Martin Garrix’s “Scared to be Lonely,” Charlie Puth’s “Done For Me,” and latest single “Body,” which cracked the top five of the Canadian and UK charts this year.

 

British singer-songwriter Anne-Marie‘s cool, contemporary take on pop stood out this summer with her hit Marshmello collaboration “FRIENDS.” The 27-year-old’s debut album, Speak Your Mind, complete with relatable break-up bangers and a plea to society to stop relying on guns.  Featured in the album is also her hit single, cowritten by Ed Sheeran, “2002.”  Anne-Marie will be soon joining Sheeran in his upcoming tour.

Omar Apollo, a 20-year old, up-and-coming Mexican-American singer from Indiana, began writing and recording his own mix of jazz, R&B, funk, alternative, soul, and pop music just two years ago. Apollo just released his debut EP Stereo this past May and went on his first headlining tour, called the “W.A.N.T” tour, which stands for “We Are Niños Timidos.”
