Spring is in the air but more importantly, Springfest is fast approaching. Get ready and mark your calendars for May 2 because Springfest 2015 is predicted to be the best yet!

It’s nice to know that after all the time spent writing papers and cramming for exams, there’s still an opportunity for more play than work. With the theme for Springfest this year being ‘Woodstock’,  SMAC hopes to encourage students to be more involved by planning multiple outdoor activities, such as a henna artist, inflatables, flower crown making, body painting, hemp bracelet making and tie-dye.

At the release  pub party, SMAC announced the headliner that will perform on campus– Asher Roth! Roth is an American Hip-Hop recording artist from Morrisville, Pensylvania, best known for his hit 2009 single “I Love College.”

Scheduled to perform as Roth’s openers for Springfest are the bands Cover Drive and Mockingbird Sun. Cover Drive, a four-piece band from Barbados, is a genre combination of Reggae, R&B and Hip-Hop. Formed in the year 2010, this group skyrocketed in popularity with only two albums released, their most recent being Love Junkie.

The band Mockingbird Sun is an American Country group based in Nashville, Tennessee. Formed in the year 2010 and with only one album released, #THISISREALLIFE,  this group has been featured on CMT, GAC and Zuus Country performing their signature 3-part harmony and songwriting.
