Clemson has previously hosted artists like Sean Kingston for concerts.

In alignment with Clemson’s goal to deliver the No. 1 student experience and unite the Clemson community, the University announced on Thursday that it will host the first-ever Clemson Music Fest, set to take place April 19-20.

Partnering with the City of Clemson, TMZ Entertainment and Southern Entertainment, Clemson University announced that it will host the music fest at the Upper Intramural Fields, located at 2614 Williamson Road. The festival will feature an “eclectic lineup of artists, showcasing pop, indie, hip-hop and electronic music.” Clemson will make public the headlined acts and performing artists on the event’s website on Monday, Feb. 19, at 9 a.m.

Along with artists, Clemson will bring in local food vendors, art installations and interactive activities.

“We are delighted to announce our partnership with Clemson University for the inaugural Clemson Music Fest, bringing music back to Clemson in a big way,” Clemson Mayor Robert Halfacre said in the press release. “This event represents a significant opportunity to foster community cohesion through music. This collaboration embodies the spirit of unity and cooperation, highlighting our shared commitment to diversity as we open our doors to music lovers from all walks of life.”

Both Clemson students and residents of the surrounding area will have early access to purchase tickets before public on-sale on Wednesday, Feb. 21, at 8 a.m.

“Clemson Music Fest represents more than just entertainment; it symbolizes the power of collaboration and the strength of our community,” Halfacre added. “Together, we invite residents and visitors alike to experience the warmth and hospitality that define Clemson. We can’t wait to ‘See You Here.’”

Several artists have visited the Clemson area in recent years, including Waka Flocka Flame performing at last year’s Tigerama pep rally and Sean Kingston performing at the spring block party in 2022.
