Despite its postponement of a week, Duke Day, the psychedelic music festival also known as 8th Day of the Week, came to WestCo on Saturday. In addition to the scheduled acts, there was a surprise performance by Willie Zabar ’16 and his omnichord.
If you couldn’t make it out , take a look at these photos from the first bit of the festival, and maybe you too can experience the psychedelic vibe that is Duke Day at Wes
So, if you’re (un)fortunate enough to be Facebook friends with me, then you’ll know my status updates have not been concerned with the possibility of chocolates, flowers, and lavish gifts so much as with a certain music festival held in Manchester, TN each year in June. Today, Bonnaroo announced their lineup for their 2011 Festival held this year from June 9th till the 12th. And what a sight that lineup was to see at 12 p.m. today. I would attempt to highlight some of the Wes favorites, or more honestly, my personal favorites, but that would probably devolve into merely listing nearly every artist again.
The lineup this year draws from previous festival favorites (Girl Talk, Bassnectar, The Strokes, Mumford and Sons) to brand new featured artists (Big Boi, Wiz Khalifa, J. Cole, Wavves) to some Wes-featured artists (Twin Shadow, The Head and the Heart) to Grammy-winning headliners, Arcade Fire and Eminem. Okay, okay; I’m doing what I said I wouldn’t do. So feast your eyes on the lineup and order your tickets online on Saturday, February 19th at noon, Wesleyan.
