Remi Wolf, JID, Ethel Cain, Doechii, Alice Longyu Gao and 070 Shake will take the stage for this year’s Spring Weekend, according to Brown Concert Agency.
The line-up leaked a few hours before its official release in a now-deleted Instagram story from Alice Longyu Gao.
“We did see the lineup drop before on Sidechat, but we are both really excited,” said Rachel Kamphaus ’25, who attended BCA’s official lineup release party with her friend Ethan Davis ’25. “We thought that they had a really good diversity of artists. Like there are some hyper pop, there’s indie, there’s rap, there’s R&B, so we're really excited about that.”
“We have a lot of different genres, a lot of different kinds of music,” Adi Thatai ’23, co-chair of BCA’s board, told The Herald before the lineup was announced. “We’ll also hopefully have a lot of songs in there that a lot of people will be able to sing along to.”
Remi Wolf, who will be performing on April 30, first entered the music scene with a short appearance on American Idol in 2014, when she was just a senior in high school. She released her first EP “You’re a Dog!” after graduating from the University of Southern California Thornton School of Music in 2018. She has since opened for Lorde, collaborated with Still Woozy, toured solo and gone viral on TikTok with her song “Photo ID.”
JID made his hip-hop debut with his EP “Dicaprio” in 2015. He has since released several studio albums and collaborated with Imagine Dragons to release “Enemy,” which reached number five on the Billboard Hot 100. He is also a member of Spillage Village — a music collective hailing from his home city, Atlanta, that focuses primarily on hip-hop and rap — and is set to take the stage on Saturday of the festival.
Although Visaal Leeman ’26 — who attended the BCA release party — did not recognize many of the artists, she was encouraged by her friends that “they are really good,” and is still looking forward to Spring Weekend.
“Personally, I think I'm a little bit disappointed because for me at this stage in my life, I'm not trying to listen to lyrical stuff. I just want to turn up,” said Devendra Peyrat ’26. “But it’s still a really dope lineup, and I'm definitely very excited.”
Sing-songwriter Ethel Cain is slated to perform on Sunday of Spring Weekend. She is known for producing ethereal tracks inspired by Christian music and Gregorian chants. Many of her songs, including her 2022 debut studio album “Preacher’s Daughter,” draw upon her own experiences as having grown up as a trans woman in a Christian family.
Rapper and singer Doechii will be performing on April 29. She has opened for SZA, reached virality on TikTok with her song “Yucky Blucky Fruitcake” and performed at Afropunk, an annual festival featuring alternative work by Black artists. She has also released two studio albums and was listed as an Artist To Watch by Spotify in 2022.
Alice Longyu Gao is a Chinese singer, songwriter, DJ and performance artist currently based in Los Angeles and New York. Their music is labeled as hyperpop but their sound encompasses several genres. Outside of the music industry, Gao has expanded their artistic reach to create pieces such as a salon-art-installation at MOXY NYC Times Square Hotel. They will be performing on the Saturday of the festival.
Rapper and singer 070 Shake released her debut album “Modus Vivendi” in 2020. She has been featured in songs by Kanye West, Pusha T and Raye — several of which have held positions on the Billboard Hot 100 — and will take the stage on Sunday, April 30.
