Boonearoo, Trevecca’s end-of-the-year music festival, will not take place this year and is being replaced by several other events. The main event now called “School’s Out for Summer” will be a day to relax in the quad the last Saturday of the semester.
SGA decided to cancel Boonearoo because the $15,000 cost was too much.
“With the increase of attendance of all events this year, the steadily declining attendance to concerts and Boonearoo, and the demand for better bands which cost exponentially more, the decision was made to cancel it,” said Griffin Dunn, SGA communications director.
School’s Out for Summer will take place on April 30th and will include food, games, and a time to relax in the quad for students before exam week.
“This event will have a lot of the same elements of Boonearoo and some surprises. Instead of a full day concert festival, it will be more of an end of the semester chill experience,” said Matt Spraker, associate of students for community life.
SGA will pay for half of every student’s ticket for an upcoming King’s Island trip and will also use some of the money to offer free tickets to a Lecrae concert at Lipscomb.
