The University of West Georgia’s radio station, The WOLF Internet Radio, is throwing its annual music festival on April 14, 2016.
The on-campus festival, penned WOLFstock, has become tradition at UWG since the establishment of The WOLF in 2010. WOLFstock is an opportunity for local bands and musicians to showcase their talents and promote their sound, as well as for students and Carrollton residents to enjoy a night of free music and games.
According to Sarah Sulski, promotions director for The WOLF Internet Radio, the event will be held at the Campus Center with nine different music groups performing on three different stages. The two main stages will be located in the Campus Center Ballroom and there will also be a small acoustic stage set up on the Campus Center Patio. The festival has grown in the last six years, and in 2015 featured One Shot Ellie, who appeared on the season nine of “The Voice.”
“We at The WOLF work really hard to show our peers that it is important to expose yourself to a wide variety of music, especially music that is not mainstream,” said Sulski. “WOLFstock is our yearly event where we get to share all of the talented artists that we know.”
The sixth edition of WOLFstock will feature nine musical groups from genres including alternative, hip-hop and country. Musical groups include: Paris Luna, Hannah Washington, Dj Diamond, Moran tha Man, The Founders, BLT Band, Trey Team and Belle Rousse.
The festival is going to be headlined by Hero The Band. An electric soul group comprised of four brothers, the band was recently featured on Atlanta’s 11 Alive News. They are also scheduled to appear on the next season of “America’s Got Talent.”
Admission is free, and along with the music, there will be an arcade corner in the Campus Center with games on Nintendo 64, prizes and t-shirt giveaways. There will also be food served every hour. The event lasts from 6-10 p.m.
