2nd Annual Spring Music Festival coming to NSU Campus

Northwestern_State_University_of_LouisianaNorthwestern State University’s student run radio station KNWD 91.7 FM is putting on its 2nd annual music festival, DemonFest 2014, starting at 11 a.m. on March 22, 2014.  DemonFest 2014 will be held at the Iberville Field on the NSU campus. Admission to Demonfest is for non-NSU students, and NSU/LSMSA/BPCC students get in free with a current ID.

Demonfest 2014 will feature bands from across the country, including England in 1819, Steel Bill, Peanut Butter Lovesicle, Shayliff, Engine, Dubonauts, and many more. We are excited to announce that this year’s headliner will be the indie-funk-rock band from Athens, GA, Of Montreal. Of Montreal will be in Natchitoches one night only as the group will resume their international tour just days later.

There will also be a pre-concert featuring a handful of NSU artists on Friday, March 21 at 5 p.m. at the Iberville field.

There will be plenty of activities throughout the festival along with numerous food vendors and t-shirts for sale.
