Indie pop band Passion Pit and rapper Hoodie Allen will perform at the University of Minnesota’s 2013 homecoming concert, the University announced Wednesday night.

The artists, who will perform Sept. 27 at TCF Bank Stadium, were first announced to the incoming freshman class at the annual Pride and Spirit event.

The University paid $85,000 for last year’s artists, B.o.B. and Timeflies — the most expensive acts since 2010, when the University’s Student Unions and Activities started hosting big name homecoming concerts.

Following the initial announcement, Hoodie Allen tweeted, “…Minneapolis is going to be a special show,” adding, “Thank you U of M I’ll make you proud!”
