One day after the News announced that Macklemore would perform at Spring Fling, the Spring Fling Committee confirmed the decision, writing in a Sunday email to the student body that they were “psyched” to bring the popular artist to Yale for Spring Fling.

In the email, the Spring Fling Committee also expressed remorse that the lineup was leaked beforehand.

“We were in the middle of working on a pretty epic announcement music video, complete with a cameo from Mack and Ryan themselves,” the email said. “So much for that … The guys are upset to hear we’re going to have to scrap the project.”

Students interested in designing a logo for the contest can do so by Feb. 18. Winners will receive a backstage pass to “chill” with Macklemore, Ryan Lewis and the other Spring Fling performers, according to the Spring Fling Committee.

The Yale College Council also confirmed the news in a Sunday night Facebook post.
