University Union announced 50 Cent will headline this year’s Block Party in the Carrier Dome April 24. Kygo will also perform as support. The organization made the announcement on social media today at 8 p.m.


Block Party is an annual concert booked and put on by University Union on Syracuse’s campus. It takes place following Mayfest, a small music festival of sorts free for Syracuse undergraduate students held in Walnut Park. Mayfest is also booked and put on by UU. Yeah, they’re really busy that day.

Last year EDM phenom Zedd headlined the show with support from rapper 2 Chainz. 2013’s Block Party featured pop singers Ke$ha and Trey Songz. DJ Kaskade and indie rockers Cold War Kids made up 2012’s show.
