LUaroo, Lawrence University's annual student-led music festival, delivered fun in the sun during the Saturday and Sunday of Memorial Day weekend. 

Organized by the Band Booking Committee, the annual festival showcases a bevy of student bands and several bands booked from off campus. Ten bands each day took the stage on Main Hall Green. 

“Playing bluegrass music in a band and having a bunch of college kids mosh to it is just an experience that doesn’t happen a lot at other places,” said junior Tashi Litch, a co-chair of the Band Booking Committee and a member of The Woebegones. “It’s a really special thing.”
