Darude’s First Sandstorm at Williams-Brice

Gamecock Football is back at home on Saturday hosting Kentucky with kickoff set for 7:39 p.m.

Check out some of the things happening at Saturday’s game.

All Things Darude

In partnership with corporate partners Ariat and Harrison’s, Finnish DJ and producer Darude is set to join us for his first time at Williams-Brice Stadium. He will perform a one-hour DJ set in Gamecock Village presented by Farm Bureau Insurance starting at 4:15 p.m. and then will serve as the game’s celebrity starter.

In addition to Darude’s DJ set, the Nissan Heisman House is rolling into Columbia. Stop by their setup in Gamecock Village when it opens at 3 p.m. and meet former South Carolina player George Rogers.

Make sure you also stop by the Palmetto Shirt Co. tent on Saturday. 10% of all sales from the day will be donated by Palmetto Shirt Co. to the Garnet Trust. They’ll also be selling an exclusive In Garnet We Trust shirt with all proceeds being donated to the Garnet Trust.
