Bison Sound: Spring Music and Arts Festival Preview


Attention Bucknell music enthusiasts, it’s time to tune in. With Coachella rapidly approaching the Los Angeles area in April, Governor’s Ball making its way to New York in June, and Outside Lands wrapping it up in San Francisco in August, there is no doubt that festival season is upon us. So, naturally, Bucknell is joining in on the festivities as it showcases its first ever spring music and arts Festival: Bison Sound. Sponsored by a CAP Center family collaboration of BSG, ACE, Common Ground, Concert Committee, The Bucknellian, Uptown, Outdoor Ed, and most importantly, Campus Vinyl, Bison Sound will take place on the Sojka Lawn, Saturday, April 18 from 4 to 9 PM. The event is open to the entire Bucknell community and is free of charge.

Bison Sound will feature headliners including Great Good Fine Ok, Mainland, and The Rooks. However, this event will boast student talents as well, as Bucknellians are encouraged to exhibit their myriad artistic capabilities with their peers. Currently, the event is seeking student performers, ranging from musicians, DJs, poets, actors, dancers, and many others. The event is sure to highlight students’ eclectic artistic and musical styles.


Ladies, it’s time to dig up your flower-crowns and search through your wardrobe for an outfit that will highlight your festival vibes. Gentlemen, break out your chubbies and sort through your countless number of hats for one that will embody your unique music taste. Come relax on beach towels, play yard games, grab free food, and enjoy new bands with the entire campus community while celebrating spring, art, and music. There will even be a beer garden for those 21 and over.


The Campus Vinyl team is so excited for this event and can’t wait to celebrate it with its dedicated readers and fellow music lovers. Hopefully, Bison Sound will become a springtime tradition at Bucknell. For more updates, check out the Bison Sound event on Facebook.
