The Student Alumni Association is welcoming bands to audition for this year’s second annual SpringFest.
Similar to JamFest in the fall, SpringFest is an event that occurs the weekend following Spring Break. SAA is looking for 6-12 bands to play for varying amounts of time.
Last year, SpringFest featured seven bands, all of which included at least one ACU student. Zack Morgan, SAA president, said he would love to give groups the opportunity to play for the student body.
“We are reaching out to all of the acts from last year, in addition to the acts that auditioned to play at Jamfest, and the groups that played together during Freshman Follies,” said Morgan, senior biology major from Keller. “Additionally, we are looking for ways to get groups or individuals that we do not know of to audition.”
Auditions will begin Feb. 28 in Gym D of the Rec Center at 5 p.m. Interested performers can contact Morgan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“I’ll help them arrange a time in our interview schedule, and we will hear them play,” Morgan said. “We are looking for as many groups to audition as are interested.”
SpringFest is being funded by SAA and the Students’ Association. Jamilah Spears, SA executive administrator, said SpringFest was successful last year.
“We’re hoping to bring back the same community and fun,” said Spears, senior communications major from Covina, Calif.
Spears said SpringFest will feature a petting zoo and a mechanical bull.
“We’re going to bring back Cajun Cones,” Spears said. “We are planning to partner with a lot of student groups to do games and activities outside as well.”
SpringFest will begin at 4 p.m. on Â March 23 and will take place on the lawn near Faubus Fountain Lake. The concert will start at 7 p.m. Admission is free.
