Slope Day Programming Board is excited to announce Virtual Slope Day 2021 as a two-night festival on Friday 5/14 and Saturday 5/15 @ 7pm. Performances by Ari Lennox, Smino, EarthGang, Last Dinosaurs, Michelle and PREP will be live streamed for viewing. The virtual festival is open to the Cornell community which includes students, faculty, staff and alumni. To view the show: https://live.alumni.cornell.edu/

Night 1 on Friday 5/14 will feature an alternative indie night with headliner Last Dinosaurs and support from Michelle and opener PREP. Night 2 on Saturday 5/15 will feature hip hop and R&B acts with Slope Day’s first female solo performer headliner, Ari Lennox, along with Smino and opener EarthGang. Slope Day will be virtual this year and will not have an in-person component per COVID-19 public health guidelines.

Established in 2009, Last Dinosaurs are a Brisbane-based indie rock band best known for their lush and adrenaline-pumping garage rock. Their latest release, ‘Flying’ (April 2020) sees the band take a new sonic direction, making a departure from their indie rock roots and exploring a French house and 90’s nu-disco-inspired sound. Culminating night one as an evening of indie-rock. Night 2 on Saturday 5/15 will feature Slope Day’s first female headliner, Ari Lennox. Ari, a D.C.-born singer-songwriter, is signed with Dreamville and is the next up and coming R&B vocalist sensation. The video for Ari's sultry single, "Shea Butter Baby," featuring label head and marquee artist, J. Cole, has surpassed 14 million views on YouTube alone. Her debut album Shea Butter Baby is available now on all digital retailers and features the vintage production stylings of Elite, Christo, Jaylen Rojas and multi-instrumentalist, Masego. Ari embarked on the sold out Shea Butter Baby Tour earlier this month in support of her debut album and current single, "BMO." With early tour reviews trickling in, it is clear that Ari Lennox's star is readying to reach new heights.
