The 15th annual Wulapalooza, Willamette University’s free music, art and Earth festival, will take place April 27 on Brown Field.

The festival begins at 10 a.m., with the main music stage opening at 4 p.m.

“Wulapalooza brings the campus together for a full day of music and activities before finals,” says Olympia Showman ’13, who is Wulapalooza co-president along with Annie Pawlick ’13.

“Expect to be amazed by how many talented students there are at Willamette and how much we love to have a good time.”

This year’s lineup features Menomena, Kishi Bashi, Painted Palms, AgesandAges and Sun Angle, as well as many student-organized bands.

Beyond musical acts and dance performances, Wulapalooza will include a craft fair of student work; a mobile, wood-fired pizza truck; a slip ‘n’ slide; face painting and many other family friendly activities.

A beer garden will open at 6 p.m. for attendees with a government-issued I.D.

Proceeds from merchandise sales will be donated to Garten Services — a nonprofit that supports people with disabilities by providing them with customized employment, career and retirement services.

The festival is free and open to the Salem community, but donations to the sponsored organization are welcome.
