Popstar Katy Perry and EDM mastermind Zedd are the first artists set to perform during the three-day March Madness music series next month.
The music series, which will run from April 5 to 7 at The Armory in Minneapolis, will celebrate the Final Four teams in the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament. While the series is usually held outdoors, the concerts have been moved indoors due to unpredictable weather. The Armory is one block away from U.S. Bank Stadium where the games will be held.
Perry and Zedd are the only confirmed artists of the music series right now; they are set to take the stage on Sunday, April 7 as a part of the “Capital One JamFest.” This will be the duo’s first time teaming up to perform for an audience following their collaboration on “365.” The track, which just dropped last month, has already garnered nearly 40 million streams and views on YouTube.
Admission to the concert is free, but Capital One cardholders will get first access by requesting tickets via this form through March 22. General admission tickets will be available on Friday, March 22 at 12 p.m.
In addition to the Capital One Jamfest, an AT&T Block Party will take place on Friday, followed by a Coca-Cola Music event on Saturday. So far, performers have not been announced for Friday and Saturday’s events. Visitors can also participate in the Final Four Fan Fest, which features a weekend full of interactive games, celebrity appearances, autograph signings, cheer clinics, and a Home Run Derby, among other events. Capital One cardholders can receive complimentary tickets to Fan Fest, while general public tickets are available via NCAA’s website.
Teams will face-off in the NCAA Tournament tomorrow, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday before second rounds begin on Sunday, March 24.
