Nearly 8,400 people cheered, fist-pumped and danced to performances from DJ Bamaca, R & B singer Think, rapper Tyga and electro dance music DJ Carnage at the 15th annual Big Show, held at California State University, Northridge on Oct. 3.

Big Show, hosted by CSUN’s Associated Students, is an annual concert aimed at showcasing student connectivity on campus.

The highlights of this year’s event featured a debut song by Tyga, followed by his celebrity girlfriend, Kylie Jenner, and a grand finale by Carnage, who also performed at this year’s Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas.
