Twenty One Pilots, based in Columbus, Ohio, consists of frontman Tyler Joseph and drummer Josh Dun.

The band formed in 2009, and released a full-length album, "Vessel," in 2013, after two self-released albums in 2009 and 2011. "Vessel," which merges elements of hip-hop, indie rock and punk, climbed to 58 on the Billboard 200 album chart last year.

This year, Hillside will feature two opening acts: NONONO, a Swedish band fronted by Stina Wappling, and Hunter Hunted, a California-based band founded a year ago by some former members of Lady Danville.

Tickets go on sale to the public on March 1 for $15. A pre-sale for current Bellarmine students begins on February 12, with tickets available for $5. Tickets will be available in Bellarmine's online box office at

Hillside is a spring concert series at Bellarmine, named for its original location on the hill behind the University Dining Hall. Past performers include Maroon 5, Gloriana, Phillip Phillips, Sara Bareilles, Live, Blessid Union of Souls, Matt Nathanson and Mat Kearney.
