Xavier University’s Student Government Association (SGA) has arranged the University’s first ever large scale outdoor music festival: XavierFest. The festival, which will take place

on April 26, will feature musical performances from Xavier students to nationally-known bands whose music ranges from country to hip-hop. The bands will perform on a stage

located on Ledgewood Avenue (next to Bellarmine Chapel) and festivities will also take place all over Xavier Yard.

Juniors Kevin Tighe and Margaret Gill, as well as senior Travis Moose, have been working for months to bring XavierFest to fruition. “I’m just thrilled that we finally have an opportunity to come together as a Xavier community and

celebrate the end of the year. It’s going to be an awesome time for everyone involved, simple as that,” Tighe said. Miller Lite and Pabst Blue Ribbon beer will be served for those students over the legal age holding a valid ID. Food vendors Yagoot and Aglamesis will be present and SGA is currently in contact with other vendors about attending XavierFest.

Xavier dining will also provide refreshments and will serve a luauthemed dinner, which students will be allowed to take out of the Hoff Dining Complex without a green carry-out box. Beverage Company Vitamin Water has agreed to be the main sponsor of the event. Other sponsors include Xavier Players, Xavier Commuter Council and Xavier University Information Systems Department.
