NCAA March Madness Music Festival
For the 2020 NCAA Men’s Final Four, fans will have the opportunity to experience a one-of-a-kind, free concert headlined by 10-time GRAMMY award-winning global superstar and recently announced American Music Award Artist of the Decade Taylor Swift at the Capital One JamFest® on Sunday, April 5 in Atlanta. This will be Swift’s only performance in the U.S. outside of her sold out Lover Fest West and Lover Fest East shows in Los Angeles and Boston and will be brought to fans through her multi-year partnership with Capital One.
Capital One JamFest takes place on the final day of March Madness Music Festival, a three-day free music series – produced by Turner Live Events – held Friday, April 3, through Sunday, April 5 at Atlanta’s Centennial Olympic Park. The annual concert experience provides attendees with star-studded entertainment during Men’s Final Four weekend.
“Over the years, Capital One has brought some of the most iconic artists in music to perform at Capital One JamFest, and we could not be more excited to have Taylor Swift, one of the most successful artists in history, headline this event in 2020 and the unique opportunity to offer this to fans for free,” said Byron Daub, Vice President of Sponsorships and Experiential Marketing, Capital One. “In the coming months, we will also be announcing some exclusive Capital One cardholder only benefits as a part of this performance.”
The NCAA March Madness Music Festival will open with the AT&T Block Party on Friday, April 3rd, followed by Coca-Cola Music on Saturday, April 4th, and conclude with Capital One JamFest on Sunday, April 5th.
