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,
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.”
