The University Planning Council released the lineup for Spring Concert Sunday night, which includes Timeflies, Hoodie Allen and Chance the Rapper.

The UPC’s website launched a video at 9 p.m. announcing the artists to perform at the concert on Sunday, April 19. The video also announced that students will be able to get tickets at the Mullins Center starting March 23.

Timeflies is a music duo that consists of producer Rob Resnick and vocalist Cal Shapiro. Their genre includes hip-hop, pop, electro, R&B and rap element, and performed for the first time in Boston in 2007.

Hoodie Allen is a hip-hop artist who released his first official EP titled “All American,” and his debut studio album, “People Keep Talking,” was released in Oct. 2014.

Chance the Rapper is a hip-hop artist who has released mixtapes, the most recent being “Acid Rap,” in April 2013, which was strongly praised by music fans and critics. He also has appeared on Childish Gambino’s mixtape, “Royalty,” in July 2012.

Bianca Surjawan, a junior, is the current Executive Director in UPC. She said students were given the opportunity to vote, which was through Campus Pulse at the beginning of the year.

“UPC chooses these artists from what genre won the voting selection, which fell under the pop, hip-hop, rap,” she said in a message to the Daily Collegian. Surjawan also said the artists available to perform were limited because it was busy for artists performing at Coachella that weekend.

Spring Concert is held annually at the University of Massachusetts. Past acts have included the Goo Goo Dolls, Jay Z, Third Eye Blind, Cobra Starship and Big Sean.

Tickets will be on sale for $10 with a UMass ID, $25 for students with a Five College ID and $45 for the general public.
