“Material Girl” is coming to the Pioneer Valley.
Saucy Santana, the rapper behind the Tiktok-famous 2020 track, will headline the Spring Concert on April 29, the Office of Student Affairs announced in a message to The Student.
Saucy Santana and the openers, the EDM duo Lost Kings, will perform in LeFrak Gymnasium. The doors will open at 8 p.m., and the concert will start at 9 p.m.
The rapper has risen to prominence in recent years behind hits like “Walk Em Like a Dog” and “Material Girl.” He began his career as a makeup artist for the hip hop duo City Girls, and is a frequent guest on the VH1 show “Love & Hip Hop: Miami.”
Lost Kings has produced official remixes for artists like Rihanna, Imagine Dragons, and Halsey. The duo has performed at festivals such as Billboard’s Hot 100 Festival and the Ultra Music Festival.
The concert will be free for Amherst students. Five College students may purchase tickets at the door for $20.
This year’s concert will see the tradition fully recover from the pandemic. The concert was canceled in 2020 and 2021. Last year, the concert, which featured Young M.A, was closed to Five College students, and masks were required.
