The Chainsmokers will be performing at UCF on March 31 for the Campus Activity Board’s Knightfest 2016, according to a university press release.

The Chainsmokers, a group that boasts a signature sound mixing progressive, indie and pop music, broke into the music scene last year. Now, their singles frequently top the iTunes Top 10 song list.

“The Chainsmokers are quickly becoming one of the most sought after dance music groups and we’re thrilled to have them for Knightfest 2016,” said Danielle Benson, CAB’s concert director, in the press release. “After surveying the student body on which types of artists they would like to see for this show, we knew this was an excellent opportunity to bring EDM back to UCF.”

The Campus Activities Board will be hosting the band at the CFE Arena, with free admission for students with a valid UCF ID. Doors for the show open at 7 p.m., and the opening band, which hasn’t been announced yet, will start at 8 p.m.

Student ticket distribution will begin in March, according to CAB’s Facebook page, with dates and times to be announced at a later date.

Public general admission tickets will be $25 and are available starting Feb. 1 at the CFE Arena Box Office or on Ticketmaster.
