Snoop Dogg — Lion? — to headline WSU Springfest

Posted By on Mon, Jan 27, 2014 at 12:10 PM

Washington State University's Student Entertainment Board (SEB) has a big surprise in store for its annual Springfest Music and Arts Festival.

This morning the SEB announced Springfest 2014's headliner: the one and only Snoop Dogg. (We're not sure where he stands these days regarding the name change to Snoop Lion, but we did notice the mention of the mainstream rapper's alter ego in small print on an event poster, below.)

Tickets to the April 26 performance at Beasley Coliseum go on sale to the public Tuesday, Feb. 4 at 10 am through Tickets West. Tickets for WSU students with a CougarCard are $24 (and must be purchased at the Cougar Card Center on campus), and for those non-students, tickets are $39.

Compared with past years' Springfest headliners, booking Snoop Dogg is a pretty impressive accomplishment for the SEB.

Here's a list of Springfest's past music acts:

2007 Everclear
2008 Eve 6
2009 Tech N9ne, Rebelution
2010 The Ying Yang Twins, The Maine
2011 Ludacris
2012 3OH!3, Chingy
2013 Mac Miller, E-40

While most students are focused on the music aspect of the two-day, outdoor event, Springfest also includes food, games, group activities, kids' entertainment and more.
