UT announces lineup announced for Music Fest 2012
Music Fest at The University of Toledo will feature musical performances by pop punk band Bowling for Soup and country artist Gloriana, as well as HotSauce, K’JON, Alexander Zonjic and Jeff Lorber, Tyler Hilton and local band competition winner The Dumb Easies.
Music Fest 2012 is set to take place Friday, Sept. 14, 2012 in the grassy area south of the Memorial Field House, adjacent to Centennial Mall on the UT Main Campus.
The free, public event will begin at 3 p.m. with this year’s Local Band Challenge winner, The Dumb Easies, voted on by the Music Fest Facebook community. Thousands voted, and this band was chosen to kick off the event by playing its music — inspired by pop from the past music – until 3:45 p.m.
“The Local Band Challenge allowed for the community to have a voice in the musical talent of Music Fest, and we are excited to have The Dumb Easies kick off Music Fest,” said Lawrence J. Burns, UT vice president for external affairs. “The diversity of this year’s talent will attract a crowd of both student and community members that willcome together to generate what we are anticipating to be the largest crowd at Music Fest to date.”
