This year’s musical event is titled “Radio Ready” and will feature R&B singer, Keyshia Cole, reggaeton artist, Notch and dancehall performer, Mr. Vegas.

Duchamp mentioned that there was a minor contract issue regarding lighting for Keyshia Cole, however, the director of Campus Activities assured that it would not be a problem.

“We have been complemented by the artists that come hear on how we take care of them,” he said. “We are very attentive to the demands in the contracts.”

He added, “We know the more comfortable they are, the better the performance will be.”
