Juice Jam Artist Interview: Ugly God says he hopes to return to Upstate New York because of the authenticity he felt from the crowd.

Ugly God is only 20, but he’s gaining a lot of attention, including that of Diplo, Juice Jam’s headliner, who accidentally interrupted Ugly God’s press conference to try to talk to him. But what’s making Ugly God, born Royce Davison, so popular seems to elude even he.

When it comes to his lyrics, Ugly God says he puts everything out there.

Review: The Diplo-headlined music festival started strong, but petered out as the audience dwindled.

By 11 a.m. buses full of glittery girls in crop tops and boys in partially buttoned Hawaiian shirts and started the trek to South Campus. The lineup at Juice Jam 2017 consisted of Diplo, Ugly God, MØ, Smallpools, and Jeremy Zucker. The first three sets would’ve been enough to fill the fun day of music most students were looking for, but Ugly God and Diplo’s sets left something to be desired.
