Johns Hopkins Spring Fair kicked off in 1972, inviting the Baltimore community to the university's Homewood campus for parades, exhibitions, and performances. Since its beginning, the event billed as the largest student-run festival in America has attracted noteworthy performers from the world of music, from a young Eminem to the first musician to play at the original Woodstock in 1969. This year, as Hopkins prepares for a performance by Nelly (of "Hot in Herre" fame), we've put together a list of 10 of the biggest acts to hit the Spring Fair stage over the past four and a half decades.
