About Summerlands

Summerlands is finally here! Come out to Aldrich Park on May 18th at 4pm to experience the biggest concert ASUCI has to offer during the Spring quarter! Every Spring Quarter, ASUCI hosts Summerlands, our annual Spring concert held in UCI’s very own Aldrich Park.

The goal of Summerlands has always been to provide a quality outdoors music festival that caters to all of the UCI students in order to create a space for diversity and school pride. With great musical talent, the festival aims to liven up the Spring quarter after all of the students’ hard work! From vendors to raffles, there is no end to the amount of entertainment at Summerlands! Hope to see you all there!

Formerly known as Reggaefest, Summerlands was created in 2014 to allow different genres of music to be presented to the student body. This year signifies our fourth show and it is going to be packed with exciting food vendors, a beer garden, new genres, nice weather, and good vibes!

The Line-up

Madeon
Headliner

Madeon

Born in Nantes 22 years ago, Hugo Leclercq aka Madeon was introduced to electronic music aged 11, when he came upon a documentary about Daft Punk. A few years later, his breakthrough came by entering an online remix competition for drum'n'bass band Pendulum. His repositioning of their "The Island" as tough, sparkling house won and kickstarted a string of anthemic remixes -- for The Killers, Deadmau5 and Martin Solveig amongst others.

His "Pop Culture" video (the celebrated video featuring him live mixing 39 different tracks, featuring everyone from ELO to Britney Spears, into three and a half minutes of music) has now been played over 37 million times on YouTube. His production skills have also been called upon by some the biggest names in pop: alongside his credits on records by Muse, Ellie Goulding and Two Door Cinema Club, Coldplay as well and producing and co-writing three songs on Lady Gaga's 'Artpop' album.

Ella Mai

Ella Mai
Midliner

Ella Mai is on the verge...After releasing her three critically acclaimed Time, Change, and Ready EPs the singer, songwriter and R&B songstress is not ready to slow down. The London-born and Los Angeles based powerhouse speaks her mind and that honesty drives the writing in her songs, including her latest anthem, “Naked”.

After the release of her final EP trilogy installation Ready, Ella Mai spent the end of 2017 on Kehlani’s SweetSexySavage tour. Following the tour, she released a new song and visual for “Naked,” and its accompanying video. Her current single “Boo’d Up” which was released on the Ready EP, has unexpectedly taken off in 2018. With the growing success at radio and streaming, “Boo’d Up” is climbing the Billboard charts.

P-Lo

P-Lo
Opener

P-Lo is a founding member of the Bay Area collective HBK Gang (Iamsu!, Sage The Gemini, Kehlani and more). As a solo artist, P-Lo has been steadily on the rise, releasing projects that continue to push him further into the spotlight. As a producer, P-Lo has made hits with Yo Gotti ("Act Right"), Flo Rida ("GDFR") and B.o.B. ("Not For Long") to name a few.

Fresh off of tour with Skizzy Mars and after dropping his latest video for his stand out track "LTBU" feat. G-Eazy & Jay Ant, P-Lo is ready for his first headline tour this July.

Health & Safety Information

Alcohol Safety

You don’t have to drink to have fun, but if you do choose to:

  • Eat before and after the event.
  • Alternate between alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.
  • Keep track of the number of drinks you have (especially the amount of liquor). Determine in advance the number of drinks you will consume, and stick to it! Keep in mind that one drink is a 12 oz beer, 5 oz of wine, or 1.5 oz of liquor.
  • Tell your friends to let you know when you’ve had too much to drink.
  • Pace your drinks to one or less per hour, and avoid drinking games.
  • Don’t take (or give) unwanted peer pressure
  • Have a designated driver
  • Watch over your friends and peers. If you see someone in medically dangerous conditions, do not be afraid to reach out to a security guard, police officer, event staff or event volunteer to ask for help. Your health and safety is our first priority!
  • Do not provide or share alcohol with persons under the age of 21

Drug Safety

Do NOT mix drugs and alcohol. There is no way to anticipate how your body will react to the mixture- the reaction could be very serious or even fatal.

Remember: You never know what you are actually taking. Though distributors may assure you that you are getting a certain drug, there is a high likelihood that this drug has been cut with something else, or is a different drug entirely. This is especially common with pills.

If you do not feel well, seek help immediately! DO NOT SLEEP IT OFF. The symptoms of drug overdose can be the same, more exaggerated, or totally different than those of excessive alcohol use.
Your safety is our first priority.

For friends of people who are engaging in drug use:

  • Monitor your friend, and make sure they are drinking enough water.
  • If they are displaying extreme or out of character behavior, get them help. It could be the result of drugs or excessive alcohol in their system, and their health may be at risk.
  • By speaking up you could save your friend from serious harm, and could even save their life.
