Here's what to expect at the show:

Unfamiliar with RiverFest? Here is some history that SCOPE is happy to put on a concert for...

In its beginning, RiverFest began as a small event that cost about $2500 and attracted a crowd of about 750 people. At its peak in the mid- and late 80’s, RiverFest was an 11-day celebration that cost up to $70,000 to produce. Some previous daytime events included a carnival, KidsFest, performances by the Swing Dance Club, UI Dance Team, Cheerleading Squad, and Dance Marathon, Taste of Iowa City, a rock climbing wall by the Army ROTC, lawn game tournament, and student organization and business information booths. The evening activities have included a Battle of the Bands and performances by many up-and-coming musical groups such as Euforchestra and Critical Hour.

Today, Riverfest is one of the largest and most successful student-organized events on campus. It has expanded to meet the changing needs of students and the community. Now In its 30th year, RiverFest has refocused its efforts around the music. A weekend concert festival with great food, fun attractions, and (of course) quality music.

I am so EXCITED! Don't get me wrong I loved the shows we already put on but it's nice to get a different kind of show on the ballot. I cannot wait! :)
