Swedish electronic artist to headline student music festival

Saying the concert is about more than music, the University of Windsor Students’ Alliance announced Tuesday a preliminary line-up for its Coming Home Music Festival, scheduled for September 5 at Windsor’s riverfront festival plaza.

“The UWSA’s concert, like our university and our city, will be the best across the country because it will be about more than the music,” said Alyssa Atkins, the alliance’s vice-president administration. “This is about us … being more capable, innovative, and bold than anyone believed.”

The show will feature electronic musician Tim Bergling of Sweden, who performs and records under the name Avicii.

Atkins called him “the most prominent leader of electronic music” and noted he is thrilled to be headlining the festival.

“His ferocious talent and relentless success have brought him to establish his name among the stars,” she said.

Joining him in the line-up is Windsor native, DJ Josh Karmin. Organizers will name additional artists as the festival approaches.
