The OzFest concert returns in 2021 with a virtual show starting at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, April 30, featuring worldwide hitmakers Trippie Redd (pictured) and Snakehips.

Admission to the show is free via online registration.

Trippie Redd emerged in 2015 with a series of online tracks that hinted at the versatile style he came to develop, that blended elements of cloud rap, emo rap and trap. The commercial mixtape "A Love Letter to You 4" debuted at the top spot on the Billboard charts in late 2019 and racked up more than 100 million streams in its first week. 

An expanded edition of the mixtape was released the next year, with bonus material and new songs that featured artists such as Lil Tecca and Chance the Rapper. This revised version of the wildly successful mixtape set the scene for third studio album "Pegasus," released in October 2020. The record included cameos from Young ThugFutureBusta Rhymes and others, and debuted at number two on the Billboard charts.

Students can register now for a chance to win a meet and greet experience with Trippie Redd.

Snakehips are left-field downtempo synthesists of several genres, including rap, electronic and a little R&B. U.K. producers Oliver Lee and James Carter gained gradual notice from 2012 to 2014 with remixes of tracks by Willie Hale ("Groove On"), Wild Belle ("It's Too Late"), Bondax ("Gold"), Banks ("Warm Water") and the Weeknd ("Wanderlust"). 

After a pair of singles, their "
Forever, Pt. 2" EP appeared in March 2015, and the duo scored big with their next single, the yearning pop tune "All My Friends," which featured Chance the Rapper and Tinashe. The song was a worldwide hit, particularly in Australia, New Zealand and the U.K., where it hit the Top Five on the singles charts. Subsequent notable songs include "Don't Leave," a collaboration with MØ; followed by "Right Now" with Elhae, DRAM, and H.E.R.; "Either Way" with Anne-Marie and Joey Bada$$. In 2018, and "Cruzin'" with St Rulez.

While the pandemic means this year's OzFest is not yet able to resemble the daylong edition that featured free food, games, rides, interactive activities and musical performances, the Student Association Program Board still wanted to bring a spring concert to the last weeks of the semester.
