We’re just two days away from Quadstock 2010 and this year is sure to be much more “epic” than last year’s. Nearly every student at Seattle University knows that there are two Quadstocks. One is the actual event. The other is an event not put on or associated by SEAC at all and is basically a party for the masses. Both are great and both cater to types of people with different needs. I’d also like to let you know that you will be missing out if you choose not to attend this year’s Quadstock.
This year our Quadstock Chair has truly outdone himself. He has put together the best lineup that has ever come to Seattle University in the history of Quadstocks. Our main stage will include performances by Beehive, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Hey Marseilles, Dan Deacon, and
Tokyo Police Club!
We have touched based with a variety of genres including pop, hip hop, indie, local etc and each are bringing something new and fresh to the table. Hey Marseilles is a well-known local band from the Seattle area. Dan Deacon puts on the most incredible performances and this year Tokyo Police Club performed at Coachella and will perform at Bonnaroo– two very big music festivals [that you should know of]
Also, you should know that it isn’t easy planning a music festival. It has spanned over the entire school year and that it is also difficult to book musicians and artists because there is such a thing as tour dates, recordings in the studio, and contract bindings. It is not a job that anyone can do. And despite what you might think about us being a private school, we do not have infinite amounts of money.
Our chair has done a fantastic job! This year we are offering food from local vendors including Ezell’s, Dicks, Pita Pit, Jimmy Johns, and Mighty-O Donuts. Tickets are only $10! A ticket for a normal Tokyo Police Club show is $20+ but for this $10 price you are getting amazing food (lots of it!) and four other bands as well as being able to catch our wonderfully talented student performers.
– If you don’t buy your tickets soon, they will probably sell out.
– We are not associated with the “other Quadstock,” but we are tempted to sell you one of our shirts for $20 when you ask us.
– Quadstock is for Seattle University students and is not open to the public.
