Diplo To Hold Virtual Concert For Penn State Students

Diplo, an electronic dance music DJ, will perform at a virtual concert for Penn State students at 8 p.m. on Thursday, April 23.

The concert will be carried out via Zoom Webinar, and it’s being hosted by Penn State’s Student Programming Association.

If you’re interested in “attending” the concert, you’ll have to fill out SPA’s form to receive the Zoom link. You can click here to find that form, and SPA will also post the form on its social media channels prior to the start of the concert. Those who fill out the form will get an email with the link shortly before the concert kicks off.

After kicking off his EDM career in 2004, Diplo has grown into one of the genre’s most well-known DJs. He creates music independently and as one-third of Major Lazer. The trio’s most famous song is “Lean On” — a double-platinum song that’s been viewed more than 2.7 billion times on YouTube to this day. Two of Diplo’s collaborative albums, “Peace is the Mission” and “Skrillex & Diplo Present: Jack Ü,” peaked at No. 1 on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic charts in 2015.

Diplo is also part of “Jack Ü,” an EDM duo with Skrillex, and he’s also worked with worldwide stars like Ariana Grande, Beyonce, and Lil Wayne, among others. He typically performs around 300 shows per year — including on-stage appearances at huge events like Coachella.

Mikey Mandarino

In the most upsetting turn of events, Mikey graduated from Penn State with a digital & print journalism degree in the spring of 2020. He covered Penn State football and served as an editor for Onward State from 2018 until his graduation. Mikey is from Bedminster, New Jersey, so naturally, he spends lots of time yelling about all the best things his home state has to offer. Mikey also loves to play golf, but he sucks at it because golf is really hard.
