Rapper Earl Sweatshirt to headline Mayfest 2013

The annual year-end celebration will also feature electronic band Sound Remedy, with a third act TBA.

Los Angeles rapper Earl Sweatshirt will headline this year's Mayfest in Walnut Park on April 26, with support from electronic band Sound Remedy and a third act TBA, University Union announced Sunday night via Twitter.

Earl Sweatshirt is a member of the hip-hop collective Odd Future. He's collaborated with Pharrell Williams, Mac Miller and Tyler, The Creator, and is set to release his second studio album Doris later this year.

Syracuse University's annual year-end celebration of free food, drinks and music will lead into University Union's Block Party 2013, which will feature glitter-infused pop start Ke$ha, as announced by UU last Sunday via Twitter.

Mayfest will start at 1 p.m. in Walnut Park, and last until 6 p.m. Block Party will begin in the Dome at 6:30 p.m. Tickets will be available in the Schine Box Office starting Monday April 8 and include food, non-alcoholic beverages and entertainment. Beer is included for students over 21 with valid ID. Tickets are $21.50 for SU/SUNY ESF students, and are limited to one per person.

Last year's Mayfest featured indie pop dance artist Outasight, dub-rap duo Timeflies, Syracuse-based jam-rappers AER and dubsteppers 5 & A Dime.

More information about Mayfest 2013 is available at the Mayfest site.
