Student Entertainment Events and Pepsi Present: Art Attack XXVIII  
Featuring Nelly & Brenton Duvall

Nelly and Duvall bring a variation of hip-hop, rap and mash-up music  
to Maryland campus

COLLEGE PARK, Md. – Student Entertainment Events and Pepsi are pleased  
to announce the 28th annual Art Attack concert, featuring Nelly and  
special guest Brenton Duvall. The event will begin at 6:30 p.m. in  
Capital One Field at Byrd Stadium on Friday, May 6.  Doors open at  
5:00 p.m. Tickets are $5 with a valid UMCP ID and $20 for the general  
public and can be purchased at the Hoff Theater Ticket Office in the  
Adele H. Stamp Student Union or online at www.umdtickets.com. Tickets  
are currently on-sale.

Rapper, singer-songwriter, executive producer and actor, Nelly,  
started his solo music career in 2000 with Universal Records. Well- 
known “Hott in Herre” and “Dilemma” were among the artist’s earliest  
music hits. In 2009, Billboard named Nelly the #3 Top Artist of the  
Decade. Most recently, Nelly released the album 5.0 with lead single,  
“Just a Dream.” Nelly will provide entertainment for all at Art Attack  
XXVIII bringing with him a sense of nostalgia for old fans, and  
creating memories for new fans. Visit http://www.nelly.net/ to hear  
the most recent music from Nelly.

“Mean, Planes and Taylor Gangs” producer, Brenton Duvall got his start  
as a member of the Washington DC based music crew known as the Potomac  
Boys Club. Now considered by many to be the next big emerging DJ to  
hit the club scene, it is no surprise Duvall is currently a chart  
topper on heralded music blogs like HypeMachine. Known for his unique  
remixes and mash-ups of some of today’s most popular songs, Duvall is  
excited to be opening for Art Attack in his first hometown  
performance. To listen to Duvall’s “Mean Planes and Taylor Gangs” head

“Student Entertainment Events continues the tradition of Art Attack by  
capping off a full day of events on McKeldin Mall with Nelly  
headlining our annual concert,” said Mike Goland, SEE Concert  
Director. “The Grammy award winning artist is to perform his old and  
new hits including Country Grammar, Hot in Herre, Ride Wit Me, and  
Just A Dream!”
