Fivio Foreign and Yung Gravy will headline this year’s Fall Fest, the student body announcement on social media on Saturday.
A third artist will be announced next week, said SA communications director Tendaji Ya’Ukuu.
This year’s Fall Fest will be the first since 2019 and will take place on Saturday, September 24. The location has yet to be announced.
Fall Fest did not take place from 2020 to 22 due to security concerns related to COVID-19.
Fivio Foreign’s music career kicked off in 2019 with his hit song “Big Drip”. The 32-year-old Brooklyn-based rapper currently has over 10 million monthly listeners on Spotify and is known for helping to build New York’s Drill scene. His most popular songs include “City of Gods” with Kanye West and Alicia Keys, “What’s My Name” with Chloe and Queen Naija and his feature on rapper Lil Tjay’s “Headshot”.
Yung Gravy currently has over 14 million monthly listeners on Spotify. The 6-foot-7 Minnesota-raised rapper shot to fame with his 2016 hit song “Mr. Clean.” Her most popular songs currently include “Betty (Get Money)”, “oops!” and “Welcome to Chilis”.
The SA selected the artists they did using a survey sent to students over the summer, according to Ya’Ukuu.
