Spring Jam is an annual outdoor concert on the Quad at the University of Illinois. Held during one of the last weekends in April, this event brings a popular musical artist to campus for a FREE concert for UIUC students. The student body completes a survey each fall semester which helps select the main artist. This is a collaborative event put on by the Illini Union, State Farm Center, the Illini Union Board, and Star Course UIUC

This year, rapper NLE Choppa will be performing on the Main Quad stage at State Farm Center! Students with an early-access wristband will be given first entry from 1-1:15pm with general admission starting at 1:15pm.
