The Lycoming College Campus Activities Board (CAB) has announced Jidenna will headline the spring concert scheduled for Saturday, April 28, at 8 p.m. in the Recreation Center. The opening act will feature Jordan Bratton.

With an origin story that spans continents and coasts, Jidenna’s man about town swagger and global appeal balances the debonair edge of James Bond with the consciousness of Muhammad Ali. Jidenna moves with poise and purpose on stage and off, delivering personal narratives and commentary on the world’s state of affairs. A natural born leader, he embodies the role of a chief— the African version of a don. 

Jidenna’s buoyant sound and sharp lyrics will make you turn up and tune in, romanticizing the universal themes of love, war, and humanity. His music can only be described as Swank— a cosmopolitan and funky take on hip-hop that is all his own. With his "party and ponder" anthems and thrilling stage presence, Jidenna is setting the bar for excellence while making it cool to have fun(k) again.

“We are very excited to have Jidenna perform on our campus,” said Tara Leigh Sands, Director of Fraternity and Sorority Life and Involvement, “CAB feels that Jidenna will really energize and interact with the crowd, making it an unforgettable and exciting experience with a great new artist.”

As always, CAB will offer one free ticket to each Lycoming student who has paid the student activity fee, a practice that remains unique among colleges and universities that host major campus concerts. This concert is funded by the Student Senate of Lycoming College.

Tickets are $20 and can now be purchased on campus at the Office of Student Engagement, Wertz Student Center; by phone on the College’s ticket hotline at 570-321-4056; at; or by visiting the Dairy Queen in South Williamsport. 

Previous concerts at the College have included Mike Posner and The Legendary Mike Posner Band, Scotty McCreery, AWOLNATION, Mac Miller, Maroon 5, Ke$ha, Ben Harper and Relentless7, and Good Charlotte.
