Superstar Grammy award-winning artist Tim McGraw will perform at the University of Notre Dame in April during IDEA Week, an annual event that celebrates innovation, entrepreneurs and the incubation of new ideas.
McGraw will perform April 13 (Saturday) at the Purcell Pavilion at the Joyce Center.
The announcement of McGraw’s performance marks the first announced act to perform during Idea Week, which will take place April 8-13 (Monday through Saturday).
Idea Week is hosted by the University of Notre Dame, the South Bend-Elkhart region and various community organizations and businesses. It will be held at Notre Dame and other locations throughout South Bend and Elkhart and will be open to the public.
More than 18,000 people attended at least one part of Idea Week 2018, its inaugural year.
In addition to McGraw, IDEA Week will feature nationally known keynote speakers; the McCloskey New Venture Competition, which will offer prizes worth hundreds of thousands of dollars; a major comedic act; additional musical performances; meet-ups; workshops; technology experiences; and various social activities, all of which will be announced in greater detail over the next five months.
A primary goal of Idea Week is to introduce entrepreneurs, developers, makers, inventors, designers and investors to each other and to highlight the economic growth and innovation that is propelling Notre Dame and the South Bend-Elkhart region forward. The entertainment portion of Idea Week, such as McGraw’s concert, is designed to bring people together, according to Bryan Ritchie, Notre Dame vice president and associate provost for innovation.
