Kristian Bush, Cher Lloyd and ScHoolboy Q will headline Frontier Fiesta when it is held March 26-28 at TDECU Stadium.

The three artists form the highest-paid lineup to perform at Frontier Fiesta as part of the organization’s plan to bring more recognizable artists to the festival.

“It’s going to cause a lot of buzz. They’re big names. They’re people that you’re going to recognize,” said Frontier Fiesta chair Kelley Poblete.

Bush, one half of the country music duo Sugarland, will take the stage on Thursday, March 26. Bush has won six Broadcast Music Inc. awards for his songwriting.

Lloyd, whose performance is presented by the Student Programming Board, will bring her talents to TDECU Stadium on Friday, March 27. Lloyd is known for her hit single “Want U Back” and for finishing fourth on the seventh season of X Factor UK.

ScHoolboy Q has two hit songs, “Hell Of A Night” and “Man Of The Year,” that he will presumably perform when he takes the stage on Saturday, March 28.

Frontier Fiesta will make its TDECU Stadium debut after it was moved to parking lots 20A and 20C while the new football stadium was being constructed.

“At the most basic level, the concert seating has so much room to grow with 40,000 seats. The parking lot is also double the size as last year,” said Director of Cookoff¬†Meghan Meriano

Poblete said Frontier Fiesta moving back to the football stadium is an important moment for the organization.

“Frontier Fiesta originally started at the stadium,” Poblete said. “We’re moving back home, and I think people will like the sights.”

  • Who are the supporting acts??? I sure as hell didn’t vote for any of these folks. The people of Yik Yak concur.

  • For what it’s worth, Frontier Fiesta was a tailgate village thing, not something at the stadium itself.

    And looking at the music lineup, I haven’t seen people pay so much for so little since my weekly paycheck.
