The Rutgers University Programming Association (RUPA) spent a total of $95,000 for this Friday's Rutgersfest concert lineup, which includes Pitbull, 3OH!3 and Yelawolf.
"The amount we spend on talent only went up to what it had to," said Lori Smith, assistant director of student centers and programs at the University. "It's a pretty cost-effective event. We expect 20,000 to 30,000 people to come out to Rutgersfest."
Smith said although the event is free to members of the University community through the funding of mandatory student fees, the cost per person at the event is low.
For rapper Pitbull, RUPA paid $50,000 while they spent $35,000 for electronic duo 3OH!3 to perform, she said. In an effort to bring an up-and-coming act to Rutgersfest, RUPA paid Alabama-based rapper and Eminem's new protégé Yelawolf $10,000.
"I think he'll be big and has a lot of potential," Smith said. "We got Ludacris and Kanye West before they were huge. It's a fun, strategic thing the committee members get to do, figure out who's going to make it."
Ana Castillo, president of RUPA, agreed that Yelawolf has potential.
"I've heard a lot of inklings about him. He has a pretty big underground following," she said. dailytargum
