UPDATE: BØRNS appears set to play Juice Jam 2015

The Weeknd is not slated for University Union's Sept. 13 music fest as a music website posted erroneous tour dates.

UPDATE, Aug. 31:

Now that University Union has made its official Juice Jam 2015 lineup announcement with Big Sean as headliner, The NewsHouse reviewed its original reporting about The Weeknd as a potential act.

We've determined that the JammerZine article we referenced about the R&B musician's fall tour was paired erroneously with the actual fall tour dates for Juice Jam artist BØRNS.

We are aware that our article created excitement for some prior to today's UU announcement and apologize for any disappointment anyone has about The Weeknd not appearing at the Sept. 13 festival.

The Weeknd - Juice Jam 2015


It looks like if University Union has its way, you won't be able to feel your face after Juice Jam 2015.

According to a tour itinerary posted on JammerZine, R&B musician The Weeknd will play the semester opening music festival at Skytop Field on Sunday, Sept. 13.

University Union has not announced the Juice Jam 2015 lineup but, however, has promised on its social media outlets that that acts would be revealed soon.

The Weeknd has emerged as a top artist this summer based on the success of the Canadian artist's "Can't Feel My Face." His new album, Beauty Behind the Madness, will be released on Aug. 28.


Also joining The Weeknd, will be BØRNS, a singer-songwriter known for "1Ø,000 Emerald Pools" and "Electric Love."

According to the tour industry source Pollstar, BØRNS is scheduled to play at Syracuse on Sunday, Sept. 13, the same day as Juice Jam 2015.

Juice Jam expanded to a musical format in 2013 and last year's semester-opening concert featured Dillon Francis and Schoolboy Q.

Originally from Michigan, Garrett Borns relocated to Los Angeles in 2013 where he took on the stage name BØRNS and wrote his first single, "1Ø,000 Emerald Pools," that was featured on his debut EP, Candy. His sound blends rock, electronics and folk as evidenced by his singles "Electric Love" and "The Emotion."

BØRNS' debut full-length album, Dopamine, is scheduled for Oct. 16.
