Cornell has about two big acts a year, as part of events like Slope Day. This year we have Nelly, last year I think they had Drake, recently they've had Phoenix and The Flaming Lips. But the city of Ithaca doesn't have any big stadium acts. They don't even have a big stadium. Most artists would come to Syracuse or Rochester.
As far as local music, a few bars (like Castaways) have live music every day, but Castaways is too far to walk from campus, so I've never been.
