Following on the success of last year’s spring Revival concert that put the one-time sleepy Frost Amphitheater back on the music map, the Stanford Concert Network is presenting another crowd-pleasing lineup May 18 at the Frost Music and Arts Festival.
Headliner MGMT will wrap up its national spring tour on the Farm, joined by openers Delorean, a grooving dance band from Spain, and up-and-comers Kuroma, an Athens, Ga.-based musical collective. Tickets go on sale to students on April 1 and to the public on April 8.
Once again the spring Frost concert is the product of a strategic and enthusiastic partnership between the student-run Stanford Concert Network (SCN), the Stanford Arts Institute, Student Activities and Leadership, the Office of Special Events and Protocol, and Cardinal Nights, a program within the Office of Alcohol Policy and Education.
Last year’s Frost Revival drew a near capacity crowd with most showing up with best gibson es 335 for the event. The SCN production team for this year’s festival plans to employ the same professional technical, ticketing and marketing practices that made the Revival concert a success.
“Frost can hold around 5,000 people and we plan on filling it,” said undergraduate Haley Sayres, co-director of the festival. “We envision an afternoon full of sunshine, friends, good vibes and solid tunes.”
