The NCAA has just doubled its Rihanna dosage this year.
The organization announced Monday that the singer will headline the upcoming three-day March Madness Music Festival. The announcement comes as her single “American Oxygen” was named the tournament’s theme song last week. [Scroll down to watch.]
While the festival kicks off Friday, RiRi will take the stage on Saturday, April 4, in Indianapolis, Indiana. Also performing that day is musical group Bleachers. Last year’s headliner was Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band.
The concert will take place ahead of that day’s semi-finals games, with footage from the performances to air during the match ups.
Zac Brown Band will headline the festivities on Sunday, April 5, which also includes Lady Antebellum and Kacey Musgraves. Highlights will air during the CBS’s National Championship pregame show at 8:30 p.m. ET.
The NCAA Tournament Championship game will take place April 6 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
