Juice Jam 2017 is set to feature five artists across the EDM, hip-hop and indie genres. Rock out to these four playlists featuring artists from past Juice Jam festivities.

The Juice Jam 2017 lineup isn’t getting as much hype as it did in past years. To get more in the zone, here’s a genre-based playlist celebrating the past four years of Juice Jam lineups.

Rap/Hip-hop has the biggest representation in Juice Jam history since 2013. Here’s a mix of throwbacks and current hits from each artist and the year they came to Syracuse. Disclaimer: No, Fetty Wap did not show up, but Trap Queen will forever be a campus classic.

-Fetty Wap 2016 – “Trap Queen,” “679” (feat. Remy Boyz), “My Way” (feat. Monty)
-D.R.A.M. 2016 – “Broccoli,” “Gilligan,” “Cash Machine”

-iLoveMakonnen 2015 – “I Don’t Sell Molly No More,” “Tuesday” (feat. Drake),” I Like Tuh”
-ScHoolboy Q 2014 – “THat Part,” “Collard Greens,” “Man Of The Year”

-Ab-Soul 2013- “Illuminate” (feat. Kendrick Lamar), “The Law” (feat. Mac Miller & Rapsody), “D.R.U.G.S.”

EDM is a close second in Juice Jam representation. University Union has a knack for inviting artists before they go big. This year has heavy emphasis in this genre, so make sure you find an elevated surface.

-Marshmello 2016 – “Show you,” “Chasing Colors” (Feat. Noah Cyrus), “Keep it Mello” (feat. Omar LinX)

-Robert DeLong 2013 – “Long Way Down,” “Global Concepts,” “Don’t Wait Up”

Pop is still the radio favorite but these artists put their own flair into the mix. These female artists paired their killer vocals with even greater beats.

-Tinashe 2014 – “2 On ft. SchoolBoy Q,” “Flame,” “Player” ft. Chris Brown
-Tove Lo 2016 – “Habits (Stay High),” “Talking Body,” “Influence ‘Audio’” ft. Wiz Khalifa
