The funk rock band N*E*R*D, the remix artist Girl Talk and the rapper Wale are slated to perform at Spring Fling next month, the News has learned.
The Yale College Council and the Yale Student Activities Committee, which plan the annual concert, have not yet announced this year’s performers. But the three musical acts are listed on the Web site of Pollstar, a trade magazine covering the concert industry, as being scheduled to perform at Yale on April 28, the date of Spring Fling.
Reached by telephone early Monday, YCC President Rich Tao ’10 would not confirm that the three acts had been booked for Spring Fling. He declined to comment on whether the three artists comprised the entirety of the show’s lineup and on the status of the selection process.
“All of us involved have put in a lot of time and energy into this year’s Spring Fling,” Tao said in a statement. “We are all really excited about sharing the lineup with the school. Right now, we are still working on the show and we aren’t ready yet to announce the full lineup.”
