Three Artists, Including Far East Movement, To Perform at Yardfest

The White Panda and Sam Adams will join the Far East Movement

Marking the second time in a row that three artists will perform at Yardfest, Far East Movement, The White Panda, and Sam Adams will play at the spring College-wide concert on April 17, the College Events Board and the Harvard College Concert Commission announced earlier tonight.

Far East Movement, a four-man hip-hop group, is best known for 2010’s “Like a G6,” which topped the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 last year.

White Panda, the mashup duo of Tom Evans and Dan Griffith, has previously toured with last year’s Yardfest artist Wale and 2011’s third artist Sam Adams. Adams, a Cambridge local, is a rapper known for his mixing of hip-hop and electronica.

The sixth annual concert—held for the first time this year during “Visitas,” the visiting weekend for high school students who have been offered admission to the College—will take place in Tercentenary Theatre.
