Spring Quarter is just about complete (oh my!), which means it’s about time for a well-deserved celebration of the arts and entertainment. On Thursday, May 19th, 2022 ASUCD Entertainment Council is hosting its massive end-of-year “Lawntopia” concert at 7pm on the Quad. This year’s headliner: Duckwrth. Oh yeah, and it’s free.

But, you may be asking, what even is Lawntopia? To answer this question one must first look to the organization that has been putting it on for decades. Entertainment Council (EC), an ASUCD Unit, is responsible for producing and promoting small-scale shows, open mic nights, movie screenings, and, of course, mega-campus-events like Lawntopia. 

And we can’t just skip past the headliner either. Duckwrth is a rising hip-hop/rap sensation that has been absolutely blowing up since his going on tour with Billie Eilish. Currently sitting at 2.9 million Spotify listeners and 264k Instagram followers, Duckwrth’s career trajectory shows no signs of slowing down, especially with the insurmountable success his recent singles have gotten.

All of this being put into consideration, let’s break down the actual event details:

  • When: As noted above, Lawntopia will take place this upcoming Thursday, May 16th from 7-10pm.
  • Where: It will be held on the UC Davis Quad, just outside Memorial Union!
  • Who: Duckwrth will be headlining, accompanied by various talented openers, many of whom are local artists!
  • Why: Why not!

Everyone needs some time to de-stress, and what better way to spend it than with a free concert – there’s really nothing better than that! For any questions regarding Lawntopia, Entertainment Council, or anything related to music on campus feel free to reach out to promo@ec.ucdavis.edu
