[Preview] Don’t Miss Vanderbilt’s Two-Day Rites of Spring Festival This Fri & Sat

RitesOfSpring14-620

Vanderbilt’s 2014 Rites of Spring is almost upon us, with the fest proper kicking off tomorrow and a Battle of the Bands set to go down this evening! This year’s lineup has expanded a bit since we first told you about it last month, and the full schedule and set times have been unveiled, so we wanted to check back in one more time and remind you about this fun option amidst what has shaped up to be a busy weekend.

A healthy mix of EDM, hip hop, indie rock, and country, this year’s lineup features rapper 2 Chainz, electronic artist Steve Aoki, local dance/electronic duo Cherub, folk rockers Delta Rae, indie dance rockers twenty | one | pilots, breezy indie poppers The Mowgli’s, indie rock group Harper Blynn, rapper Ace Hood,  dance pop band MisterWives, indie poppers Smallpools, country singer/reality star Amy Wilcox, rapper Stix Izza, and two Battle of the Bands winners. The fest will take place April 11-12 at Vanderbilt’s Alumni Lawn, and, though it’s organized by the school, the long-running event is open to the general public. Tickets are currently on sale, and are available as single-day or weekend passes, ranging from $35-60. Below, check out the full schedule, and after the jump preview all of the bands!
