Age range of audience
Performance area size
We will have two very large stage set up with backdrops. We have an air conditioned "green room" in the field house and stadium complex for the entertainers prior to and after their sets.
The event begins with local student bands at 4PM and runs until midnight with different bands and DJs playing sets. The event ends officially with the fireworks display at midnight. Set up can occur right before sets as we hope to alternate stages, with breakdown needing to happen immediately afterwords. Final breakdown and transport can occur right after the festival. We hope to have secure locked down storage space for equipment before and after the sets provided by FMU campus police.
Francis Marion University's "First Friday" Music Festival will be held on the first Friday of the fall semester 8/24/2018. We hope to have a great and diverse line-up bands and DJs from student groups to local city/regional bands, to some touring groups that evening from 4:00 pm until 12 midnight. It will take place on the plaza of our new baseball stadium complex. We will have food trucks, 2 separate stages, beer sales, and an inflatable fun zone for students, faculty, staff and alumni. We seek music that mostly college-age students would like, dance to and appreciate. Think Warp Tour or EDC events. Thank You.
