The Jubilee concert featuring 2 Chainz and the UNC men’s basketball team’s Final Four matchup against Oregon are both on Saturday.
The Jubilee concert is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. and UNC’s Final Four game is set to tipoff at 8:49 p.m.
In a press release issued by the Carolina Union Activities Board after Sunday night's game, it was stated that the factors that played into scheduling the Jubilee concert included availability of the artist and of the venue.
The press release said there were only two possible dates when taking both of those factors into consideration, April 1 and April 15.
April 15 is a UNC Spring Holiday, during which campus will be closed and many University employees will be off from work.
CUAB said in the press release it sympathized with those frustrated with the conflicting events.
“CUAB is working diligently to create the best Jubilee experience for our students and community members," the release stated. "We look forward to presenting 2 Chainz and a wonderful Jubilee event to the student body, and we wish our team the best of luck in their pursuit of another NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship.”
UNC students expressed a variety of responses, ranging from indifference to irritation.
Conor Reid, a senior biomedical engineering major, did not planned to attend the concert but sympathized with those who had bought tickets.
