Halsey, Tayla Parx will join Taylor Swift at NCAA March Madness Music Festival

American Music Award winning performer Halsey, and songwriter Tayla Parx have been added to the big show.

ATLANTA — The lineup for the 2020 NCAA March Madness Music Festival keeps growing! 

American Music Award-winning performer Halsey and songwriter Tayla Parx have been added to the big show.

Both acts will hit the stage before 10-time Grammy Award-winning singer Taylor Swift headlines the show.

Parx, who just launched her debut album “We Need To Talk" in April 2019, will open the concert, making this the first ever all-female lineup for Capital One JamFest. 

Capital One JamFest takes place on the final day of the March Madness Music Festival on Sunday, April 5.

Due to limited capacity at Centennial Olympic Park and the anticipated demand for the concert, the City of Atlanta is requiring advance registration for the free concert.

A rep for Capital One writes, “This system will help public safety officials manage the crowd, allow fans to confirm tickets before heading to the concert and create a positive experience for all concertgoers."

The NCAA March Madness Music Festival is a three-day free music series – produced by WarnerMedia Studios Live Events. It will open with the AT&T Block Party on Friday, April 3, Coca-Cola will present talent still to be named on Saturday, April 4, and it will all conclude with Capital One JamFest on Sunday, April 5.

Additional performers and information for AT&T Block Party and Coca-Cola will be shared in the coming weeks.
