Jasper Jams took an unexpected hiatus, but the column is back and better than ever: daylight savings time has begun and better weather is upon us. This change in season means the quadrangle will soon regularly be filled with people throwing frisbees, chilling on blankets and blasting music.
It also means that on one fateful Saturday, the quadrangle will be transformed for a day full of festivities that will feature not one, not two but three musical acts this year.
It’s time for the lowdown on who will be taking the campus by storm with their hits.
