Hailing from The Netherlands, Bingo Players consists of Paul Baümer & Maarten Hoogstraten who fused their musical talents into massive electronic dance soundscapes and established themselves as international EDM superstars. The two Dutch DJs created its worldwide reputation through epic releases and a massive touring schedule. Bingo Players kicked off 2013 scoring a worldwide top-ten hit with their single "Get Up" (Rattle), which was a number one single in the UK two weeks in a row. This success came after the original version of "Rattle" shook up European charts for nine weeks during 2012. The pair also lit up the Beatport charts with tracks that included the 2011 hit "Cry (Just A Little)" and most recently with "Out Of My Mind." The duo also have their own label, Hysteria, and have released records from artists including Carl Trick's Mad Dash, Ralvero's Rage and Gregori Klosman's Minibar. Bingo Players have appeared at over 30 music festivals worldwide this year, including Tomorrowland and Stereosonic. They've performed at key U.S. festivals including Ultra, Electric Zoo and performed a primetime slot at Electric Daisy Carnival: Vegas. (It was announced on Bingo Players' website earlier this summer that Paul Baümer was diagnosed with cancer. He will continue to be actively involved in all areas of Bingo Players and Hysteria Records, but for the foreseeable future, Maarten Hoogstraten will be representing Bingo Players on tour, while he seeks medical treatment. He will continue to work in the studio and handle the record label.)

Bassjackers, consisting of Marlon Flohr and Ralph van Hilst, began their collaboration in 2007. Marlon was mainly DJ-ing and playing house music when the idea came to push Ralph's productions in a direction where Marlon could play their tracks in his sets. The first track "Beat Cut" was picked up by Fedde le Grand, and a solid stream of tracks and remixes followed which received massive support by all the top DJ's and scored big on the international dance charts. With 250 live shows a year, the pair's success was taken from inside the studio to the clubs, establishing Bassjackers in the dance scene. The pair's big break came in 2011, when their dancefloor hit "Mush Mush" got picked up by Tiesto and was released on Tiesto's imprint "Musical Freedom". It dominated the Beatport top 10 for over 2 months and grew to be one of the biggest club/festival tracks of 2011. "Mush Mush" received support from the likes of Tiesto, Swedish House Mafia, David Guetta, Afrojack, Sander van Doorn, Martin Solveig, Calvin Harris, Benny Benassi, Judge Jules and many more. Bassjackers have remixed for A-list artists like Rihanna and Moby; they have played in clubs from Ibiza alongside Tiesto, to Las Vegas alongside Afrojack, and continue to tour.

Alumni Hall is located on the campus of Fairfield University, at 1073 North Benson Road in Fairfield, Connecticut. Concert-goers should enter through the University's Main Entrance on North Benson Road. Free parking is available
