The event will feature The Fastest Kid Alive, Project Hero, The Educated Guess, GWAP Team and Debris. All of the bands have at least one Purdue student member.

Special guest performers Oh Discretion! will kick off the show. Tara Madison and Jake from the Z96.5 Morning Zoo will serve as the emcees for the evening.
