What Did Social Media Think of Music Fest?

Hofstra’s Music Fest Had a Soundtrack for Everyone!
Hofstra University is known for having an eclectic lineup of artists in its annual Hofstra Music Fest every spring. This year, Hofstra Entertainment and Hofstra Concerts appealed to fans of rising rap star, “Joey Bada$$,” and the popular 90’s band, “Third Eye Blind.” It was a fest for all the rest! Storify helped to put together what students were saying about Music Fest on social media.
  1. Local band “Persona” got the crowd pumped and ready for the jamming festival. The band was excited to open for the show and were also equally ecstatic to watch the headliner, “Third Eye Blind!” The “Persona” mates stayed on the field for the entire Fest, giving away CDs and tee-shirts to spread the word about their music!
  2. The winner of the 2013 Hofstra’s Battle for Music Fest, “TuNe$” had his first performing debut at the event! The rapping senior has been passionately devoted to his rapping since Middle School.
  3. Hofstra alum and semifinalist on Season Two of NBC’s ‘The Voice’ was the energetic host and performer! While students cheered for Willett’s fun and soulful singing, Willett also had fun sharing her backstage view of the other artists on social media, like Vine!

  5. “Twenty One Pilots” is an up-in-coming Alternative Rock band on MTV’s 2013 “Artists to Watch” list, and after their unique, energetic, interactive performance at Hofstra Music Fest, many students were saying they were a new favorite band.
  6. Another artist on MTV’s 2013 “Artists to Watch” list is the Brooklyn rapper “Joey Bada$$.” He caused quite a stir at the Music Fest when his performance ran longer than it was supposed to, but there was still plenty of cheering from the audience!
  7. Hofstra students ended the Fest by reminiscing in memories from the 90s, with the headliner, “Third Eye Blind!”
