The three acts will be Wale, Goo Goo Dolls and Slightly Stoopid. The concert will take place on April 13 in the Mullins Center.

UPC President Devin Basile said that this year UPC decided on an internet-based release of spring concert acts as an effort to get the word out.

Students were able to vote for what act they wanted to see during a voting process in the fall semester. Basile said that UPC tries to take student opinion into account but also put on a good show for the campus.

UPC is given two budgets for the year – one for their operating costs and various events and the second specifically for spring concert to pay for the venue and artists.

UPC uses a company called Concert Ideas as an agent to help them to bid on the artists and contract them. Basile said that often the group will go through 100 names before converging on a group of artists that they want to try and negotiate with. The process can be difficult due to costs and the time constraints of the artists, Basile said.

Tickets go on sale on March 24 at 10 a.m. Undergraduate student tickets will be $10, tickets for Five College students are $25 and general admission will be $45.
