Said the Whale to headline U Fest
Summer vibes still alive: a music fest right on campus
Vancouver rockers Said the Whale will headline U Fest 2014 on Sept. 11. They return to Calgary on Nov. 21 with Tokyo Police Club and the Pack A.D.
Calgary cranked up the volume this summer. With Sled Island, Folk Fest and X-Fest hitting Calgary with a jolt after being washed out by the devastating 2013 floods, it seemed like the good times would never end.
Now, it’s back to the grind of school. But don’t fret! There is another fest and it’s happening right here at MRU.
U-Fest — the annual welcome and welcome back by SAMRU and MRU is back — and Said the Whale is headlining.
The concert will be taking place on Sept. 11, with gates opening at 4:00 p.m. The concert is exclusively for students and SAMRU members.
U-Fest takes over MRU’s outdoor amphitheatre with games, prizes and a barbecue and beer put on by the Hub. This year, there will be a grand prize draw for free parking for a semester on campus.
Tickets are $10 dollars with a student ID and can be purchased at Copywrite & Used Books in the basement of Wyckham House.
