Concert Board announced that this year’s Spring Fling headliner will be indie-pop duo Matt and Kim, with opening acts by rapper Shaggy and indie-pop artist BØRNS. The announcement was made last night at the annual Battle of the Bands event in Hotung Café through a video that was played to a crowd of approximately 50-60 attendees.
BØRNS had already inadvertently been announced as one of the acts on March 28 through the advertisement of the artist’s upcoming summer tour on his Facebook page.
The lineup was announced shortly after a panel of student judges decided on Water Walk as the winners of this year’s Battle of the Bands, a title which also comes with the opening slot for Spring Fling, which will take place on Sunday, May 1 on the President’s Lawn.
Water Walk was competing for the title against the bands Dirty Nalgene, Space Ink and Korumbus and the hip-hop collective Tarik.
