LUaroo 2021

LUaroo is a student-organized music festival that is put on every year on Memorial Day weekend! We collaborate with artists from all over as well as student musicians to put on one big fest to celebrate spring and the end of the school year! LUaroo is happening this year on Saturday, May 29, through Sunday, May 30.

Band Booking Committee joined forces with CODA this year to bring a fest that highlighted only underrepresented voices.

Our Saturday programming this year will be virtual on the LU University Events and Performances YouTube page. On-campus students can join us on Main Hall Green for screening!

On Sunday, student artists and our headliner femdot. will perform in-person on the green.
