The secret of Nest Fest 2011 has finally been revealed.
The Programming Board announced today, which four bands will be rocking at Nest Fest: Taking Back Sunday, 30H!3, Jack's Mannequin and The Maine.
"I think it is great because it's a real diverse mix… their genres are slightly different," said Laura Layton, Director of the Programming Board. Nest Fest will be held on April 8 at 7 p.m. at Germain Arena. It's an annual student-funded event that takes place every spring.
Jack's Mannequin was scheduled for a Nest Fest performance in 2007 with Plain White T's and Meg and Dia, however, the performance was canceled.
Tickets are available today and through March 30, with a student ID for $12. After March 30, they will be $22. Public tickets will go on sale March 11 for $22.
At the announcement on the Library Lawn, students enjoyed food from Rita's and Beef O Brady's. Tickets to the show and other prizes were also given out. Last year's concert with Slightly Stoopid, Pepper and Supervillan sold out. Layton expects tickets sales to sell out this year as well.
