Travie McCoy to headline Shepfest

March 31, 2011

SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. — The Shepherd University Program Board will hold the annual spring Shepfest concert on Sunday, April 17, from 2 to 6 p.m. on the East Campus Midway.

The event will feature Travie McCoy as well as two student bands, Perpetual Wetness and Man the Harpoons. Shepherd’s WSHC DJs and award-winning hip-hop artists Big T and Web at “Da Southern Boi Hour” will MC the event.

McCoy, who sings the sing, Billionaire,” has been one of music’s most identifiable figures since Gym Class Heroes’ 2007 hit “Cupid’s Chokehold.” McCoy’s solo album Lazarus reflects his upbeat blend of hip-hop, indie rock, and soul. The album features Bruno Mars, Cee-Lo Green, and T-Pain.

McCoy is an official ambassador of MTV’s Staying Alive Foundation, an international media campaign working to prevent the spread of HIV and AIDS.

In addition to music, Shepfest will feature carnival amusements including a rock climbing wall, inflatable novelties, photos by Rockstar Pictures, HIV prevention information, and more.

Tickets are required for this year’s Shepfest and are available through the Shepherd Bookstore. Currently enrolled Shepherd students may pick up one student ticket and one additional guest ticket for free in advance. A limited number of $20 public tickets are also available at the Shepherd Bookstore through 4 p.m. on Friday, April 15.

Gates open at 1:30 p.m. and live music begins at 2 p.m., with McCoy at 4 p.m.
