Statement on Spring Concert:

Due to the artist’s management failing to produce a signed contract with UMass Amherst, the University Programming Council (UPC) had no choice other than to cancel the artist’s performance at the 2019 Spring Concert. UPC is in the process of securing another headlining artist and another opening act to join Loud Luxury for the Sunday, April 28 concert. Stay tuned for our announcement soon!

The artist’s management, after repeated inquiries from UPC, failed to produce a signed contract with the artist even after reassuring UPC that Lil Uzi Vert planned on coming to UMass Amherst to perform and that it should proceed with the announcement. However, UPC and its advisors soon learned that Uzi cancelled a Live Nation show and had failed to produce a signed contract with other New England-based colleges and universities for their concerts.

UPC felt it could not proceed with selling tickets for an Uzi show that may not happen, especially because it lacked a binding contract with the artist. The lack of a signed contract this late in the process puts the concert in jeopardy of experiencing a last-minute cancellation by the artist.

Ticket sales will begin as soon as UPC has a new headlining act locked down.

Hey everyone! Unfortunately, this artist cancellation is beyond our control. We apologize and thank you for your support...

Midterms are finally over! Now we can all have a wonderful spring break. What is everyone doing? I’m going somewhere warm to relax in the sun because when I come back UPC is going to keep me very busy with all the awesome stuff we have planned. Whatever your doing, remember to rest and be safe.

Hello everyone,

It is with great sadness that we make this post today. Unfortunately, due to the weather forecast for this weekend (torrential downpour), the 2018 Homecoming Parade must be canceled in order to prioritize the safety of our participants.

Thank you so much to all of you that planned on coming out to the parade and to those who collaborated with us to make this event happen. Hopefully, we will be able to continue this tradition in the future and have you all participate with us next year.

We’ve got SPIRIT! On the concourse! 😉
