SPA Postpones Announcement Of Block Party Headliner

The Student Programming Association has postponed its announcement of this year’s Block Party headliner after a week of hyping the big reveal. It’s unclear when the announcement will be rescheduled.

“Due to circumstances out of our control we had to delay the announcement, but we will keep everyone updated on social media about the status,” SPA Outreach Marketing Chair Allison Wulfhorst said. “We’ll send out information as soon as we can.”

SPA seems to have dropped the “Nittany” from the Block Party event name, but spent the past week throwing it back to previous performers: Matt Nathanson (2011), The Ready Set (2012), Eric Hutchinson (2013), Thompson Square (2014), The Chainsmokers (2015), Dej Loaf (2016), and Kyle (2017).

Block Party is slated for Friday, August 24 and in past years has been held on Pollock Road outside the HUB. We’ll keep you posted on SPA’s announcement of this year’s performance.
