Mighty fine performance by Aminé

BroncoFusion 2019 was highly anticipated due to the concert’s surprise announcement of the lineup. 

Students and guests pushed to the front with excitement.

Julia Rodriguez, first-year communication studies major, and Jenna Fox, first-year psychology major, were most excited to see that Aminé was headlining their very first BroncoFusion. As the crowd walked in, they were greeted with food trucks, face painting and free bracelets.

YungWhispers (aka Dominic Hang) opened up BroncoFusion 2019 with a hardstyle EDM set. 

Whispers made a grand entrance, hyping up the crowd with a remix of “Sparks” by Fedde le Grand & Nicky Romero.

The crowd was especially exhilarated when he remixed “DJ Turn It Up” by Yellow Claw.

To close out his set, he played a remix of “How Far I’ll Go” from Disney’s animated movie “Moana,” which had the crowd singing at the top of its lungs. 

As Whispers finished his set, supmartin (aka Martin Peredo) was preparing to take the stage.

Supmartin started off with one of YG’s biggest hits, “You Broke.” Students sang along, and it was clear he was off to a great start. His set included many hip-hop hits from the 2000s.

He ended with “All I Do Is Win” by DJ Khaled.

As the crowd finished throwing its hands up to supmartin’s final song, DJ Madison LST set up to get ready to open for the highly anticipated headliner.

DJ Madison LST set the mood with Megan Thee Stallion’s summer anthem, “Big Ole Freak.”

A crowd hit was “No Scrubs” by TLC, which had students singing almost every word. 

His set was filled with upbeat and R&B songs, leaving the audience more than ready for Aminé.

Aminé jumped onto the stage, as the audience went wild with screams. Aminé opened up with his hit, “Yellow.”

When Aminé performed his most streamed song on Spotify, “Caroline,” the audience took it to another level and started a mosh pit in the middle of the crowd. 

As people were getting pushed against the barricades, security had to settle down the crowd.

Aminé ended his set with his hit song, “Reel It In.” DJ Vanic was the closing artist, and was ready to take on the crowd.

Part of the crowd left during the 10-minute intermission after Aminé’s set, but DJ Vanic took the stage and kept the momentum going. His EDM house beats kept everyone dancing. Vanic ended his set with a remix of Bon Iver’s “Skinny Love.”

Overall, BroncoFusion 2019 was a success. “With [Aminé’s] popularity in the hip-hop industry, it was a really big success and our students really enjoyed him,” said Destiny S. Boyer, Associated Students Incorporated Bronco Events & Activities Team’s student activities supervisor.

Ahmed M. Ahmed, ASI BEAT’s student activities assistant, said tickets almost completely sold out, and that guest tickets did sell out.

BEAT wanted to target what the students wanted, and they thought they accomplished that with both hip-hop and EDM at this year’s BroncoFusion.
