Mayfest announced early this morning that it will reveal the Dillo Day headliner later in the day.

“This year’s contract process has been uniquely demanding; please know that we would not be waiting this long to announce unless we had absolutely no other choice,” the Mayfest executive board said in a news release.

Students were left wondering through Thursday night about the headliner for Saturday’s music festival. Mayfest has not waited until the week of Dillo Day to confirm a headline artist in at least 10 years.
