(AllHipHop News) Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania rap star Wiz Khalifa has been tapped as the headlining act for SUNY Cortland's campuses Spring Fling this April.
Over 3000 tickets will go on sale for the Spring Fling concert, with students receiving first priority.
A limited number will be sold to the public.
The rapper, who is known for his love of marijuana and other drugs, was picked based on his popularity with students at SUNY.
“Last year’s student surveys came back and said that students wanted to see him,” said Delvin “D.J.” Johnson, one of the co-chairs in charge of lining up music acts for the College’s Student Activities Board. “So this year, we took a chance on trying to get him and he accepted.”
Tickets to see Wiz Khalifa go on sale Saturday, March 24, starting at noon.
They will be sold until all tickets are gone.
SUNY Cortland students are allowed to purchase one ticket with their college ID, and will not be allowed to purchase tickets for friends.
This is due to the fact that the tickets to see Wiz are in high demand.
“He has some huge fans here and we knew it would go over pretty well with students,” Johnson said. “People are excited about it.”
SUNY Cortland’s Spring Fling takes place on Saturday, April 28 at Cortland's Park Center.
