University Hosts Urban Earth, Art and Music Festival

The ninth annual Wulapalooza, Willamette University's free music, art and Earth festival, will be held Saturday, April 28, on Brown Field.

The festival, sponsored by Associated Students of Willamette University, begins at noon, with the main music stage opening at 5 p.m. This year's featured bands are The Long Winters from Seattle, Viva Voce from Portland, Cloud Cult from Minneapolis, and Taphabit from Bellingham, Wash. Other stages will feature performances from local and student-organized bands, an art booth and exhibit, a film show and many other activities.

Each year, Wulapalooza includes a fundraiser for a local charitable foundation, and this year, the event will sponsor the Marion-Polk Food Share. The festival also seeks to provide a venue for community members to mesh with Willamette's campus, familiarize themselves with student organizations and be the university's guests for a day of music, art and entertainment.
