You thought you would have to wait till April for GreenFest? Well, you’re wrong! GreenFest is right around the corner, and this year the Executive Committee decided to spark up the hype and create the Artist Showcase. The Artist Showcase is a competition in which students will be portraying their musical talents in hopes for a chance to open up for the international recording artist that will be headlining the GreenFest concert this year!
The artist showcase will be introducing a balanced lineup consisting of 2 DJs, a male vocalist group, a female vocalist, and a rapper. The winner of the concert will be determined by a texting system that will open immediately after the last performer and will stay open till midnight. The concert will be hosted by the student run radio station, Brightside Radio, which already has over 100,000 followers on iTunes. Throughout the concert there will be giveaways and sponsor tables which will enable students to fully interact and get a taste of what the revamped GreenFest event will look this year.
The Artist Showcase will also be announcing the main headline act for the GreenFest concert on March 21st. This is the first time the GreenFest Executive Committee has planned an event before the main week of GreenFest and they are all very excited about the opportunity to engage students before the main events start. The event will be taking place on Saturday, February 2nd at 5:00pm in the ARC. Make sure to bring your good ears and Aztec pride because it’s going to be an entertaining event!
