Yeah, that’s right. The Eclectic-hosted annual music festival AWESOMEFEST! returns to Wesleyan on November 4th! Here’s your chance to be part of The School That ROCKS™.
Instead of bringing Kanye or Bieber, we want YOU to sing, rap, guitar, bass, drums, or midi your way into Wesleyan University Music Fame. Only artists who have never played a show before are eligible to perform. The winner of AWESOMEFEST! will receive a STRAIGHT CA$H fucking prize! If you win second place, you will receive a JapaneseFighting Fish!So bust out that dusty Les Paul, crack the latest version of Ableton and get jammin’!
If you are interested in infinite stardom and/or musical glory, please email Charlie Hanna ’12 at channa(at)wesleyan(dot)edu by October 20th. Please include your band’s name, members, set-up, description, and any available demos.
Last year’s Awesome Fest was totally rad in an awesomely chaotic way. Jared Leto came. SERIOUSLY.
