Charli XCX and Buddy join the list of Bruin Bash performers alongside CupcakKe.

The Campus Events Commission posted to Instagram and Facebook announcing the two new additions to the concert lineup today.

Headlining Bruin Bash 2018 is Charli XCX. Currently, on an all-female tour with Taylor Swift, she will be taking the stage at Pauley Pavilion on Sept. 24. The British singer and songwriter is known for past hits like “Boom Clap” as well as more recent singles such as “Boys.”

Buddy, a rapper originally signed by Pharrell’s label, is now with RCA Records, is set to be the supporting act for Bruin Bash. Though he has been making music for a few years, Buddy released his debut album, “Harlan & Alondra,” in July. Some of his songs feature artists like Khalid and A$AP Ferg, while many other songs on the 12-track album are solo ventures.

Tickets for Bruin Bash will be available Monday at 10 a.m.
