University Union officially announced its Block Party 2017 lineup, and it’s not what we expected. Prepare your Mayfest outfits for the best, because Travis Scott, Alunageorge and ZHU will (hopefully) be taking the stage this April 28.

Alunageorge, the iconic duo that dominates R&B, soul and electronic genres, has come out with hits like “You Know You Like It,” “I’m in Control” and “I Remember.” She and ZHU will begin the madness otherwise known as Block Party, but it’s an opener that’s worth pushing through the mid-day hangover.

Singer/songwriter Aluna Francis and producer George Ried are penetrating the industry with unique sounds and are on their way up the charts at this very moment. They’ve collabed with the likes of Disclosure, Flume, and ZHU, who will be joining them on the Dome stage. They may even be this Block Party’s Chainsmokers, so if you haven’t heard of them before, pay attention.

Headliner Travis Scott is also on the upswing of his musical career, releasing both the “Goosebumps” music video and new single “Fish and Grits” this week. His hip-hop style and party anthems like “Pick Up the Phone” are singles that are key components to a night you won’t remember.

Check out our Spotify playlist below for more of these artists, and make sure you know all the words to “Antidote” before the 28th.
