UPDATE: Tickets for Spring Fling headliner J. Cole sold out Tuesday, March 25.

SUNY Cortland has landed Grammy-nominated hip hop artist J. Cole for its annual Spring Fling concert scheduled for Saturday, May 3.

The 29-year-old North Carolina native, who has produced two albums to reach No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard 200 list, will perform in the College’s Park Center.

Tickets, which cost $20 for SUNY Cortland students and $30 for the public, will be available on a limited basis, with students receiving first priority. They go on sale Sunday, March 23, and will be sold from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., or until they are sold out, at the Corey Union Information Desk. Only cash will be accepted.

SUNY Cortland students will be allowed to purchase one ticket and must show their College ID. Students will not be allowed to purchase tickets for their friends, even if they have that friend’s Cortland ID.

Tickets will stay on sale exclusively to SUNY Cortland students on Monday, March 24, and Tuesday, March 25. They will be sold from noon to 7 p.m., or until they are sold out, at the Corey Union Information Desk.

If tickets are remaining, they will be sold to faculty, staff and the general public from Wednesday, March 26, through Friday, March 28. Only cash will be accepted.

Tickets will be sold from noon to 7 p.m., at the Corey Union Information Desk. No student-priced tickets will be available once they go on sale to the general public. Each person will be allowed to purchase up to three tickets at a time, then must go to the back of the line to purchase more.

J. Cole joins a stellar list of recognizable acts to play SUNY Cortland’s Spring Fling, one that includes the Black Eyed Peas, O.A.R. and the Fray. Rappers Wiz Khalifa and Kendrick Lamar, the College’s past two Spring Fling acts, performed to a sold-out Alumni Arena.

Recognized for his smooth instrumentals and an ability to tell stories with his lyrics, Cole is considered one of the hip hop genre’s rising stars. He became the first artist signed to Jay Z’s Roc Nation record label in 2009 and saw his first two studio albums reach No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard 200 list charts — “Cole World: The Sideline Story” in 2011 and “Born Sinner” in 2013.

Cole has collaborated with some of music’s biggest names, including Jay Z, Beyoncé and Kanye West, and in 2012 was nominated for best new artist at the Grammy Awards.
