MaryWoodstock Music Festival will take place this Friday, April 27 in the Latour Room in Nazareth Hall to celebrate local musicians and peace.

This music festival is co-sponsored by Marywood’s Student Activities Crew (SAC) and Marywood’s alternative rock radio station 91.7 VMFM. The event will be livestreamed on 91.7 VMFM’s Facebook page.

MaryWoodstock will feature local artists and bands that will play from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. Some of the performers include James Barrett, Hear Tonight, Reach for the Sky, E57, Old Charades and Permanence, with headliners Black Tie Stereo and Elephants Dancing.

Aside from local performances, there will also be carnival activities such as tie dye shirts, arts and crafts and other vendors.

Junior Music Performance Major Ross LeSoine plays saxophone in the reggae/ska group Elephants Dancing. He said he believes MaryWoodstock will be a positive experience for students and the campus.

“Music can often move people in amazing ways, especially in a live setting,” said LeSoine. “It’s important to continue the art of the live music and MaryWoodstock gives the local community and student body a perfect outlet to do so.”

The music festival was originally planned to be held in the Art Field and the new Amphitheater, but is moving to the Latour Room because of the weather.
