The Campus Events Board hosted its second Vol Night Long this semester, “Glow Up,” on Friday, Feb. 17.

The event showcased a rave with a live DJ, free glow sticks, bracelets and free food.

Apart from recent club hits, such as “Bad and Boujee” by Migos, the DJ played a few throwbacks including, “I Want to be Your Lady Baby” by INOJ and Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off.” With a decent sized crowd and upbeat set list, the attendees seemed to enjoy their night.

There were many things to do while waiting for the Volapalooza lineup announcement such as a photo booth, ping-pong and a back-light game.

Volapalooza is one of the largest campus directed events that invites many artists to perform on the last day of spring semester classes at Worlds Fair Park. In previous years, headliners included Portugal. The Man, Lupe Fiasco and Passion Pit.

Many attendees looked forward to the announcement of Volapalooza and voiced concerns of who they think should be playing.

“I feel like we should have some more local bands at Volapalooza,” Perry Baines, an attendee, said.

However, there were others who disagreed and wanted more mainstream headliners. One of those attendees was Malik Furman.

“I want to see Change the Rapper and Young Thug to make an appearance on the headline,” Furman said.

At 11 p.m., the event organizers announced the lineup. It includes: X Ambassadors, Coin, Pell, DJ A-Wall, Mountains Like Wax and Electric Darling, with more announcements coming soon.
