FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Harrisonburg, VA., April 8, 2015-- A "Festival at Festival" is just what every James Madison University (JMU) student needs to kick off the warm weather and end their semester. Madipalooza is JMU's FREE annual spring music festival that is solely student run and is happening April 11, 2015. This event is a great way for college students to hangout with their friends, meet new people and have a great day outside of the classroom. As mentioned earlier, this event is entirely FREE with food, activities such as laser tag and photo booths, free shirts, fanny packs, etc. Madipalooza also offers FREE live music, of course. If you went to an off-campus event like this, you would have to pay to park, pay to get in, and pay for all of the food you eat. With all that being said, this is a spectacular and budget-friendly event for all students to enjoy, so why not partake in a care FREE afternoon? Also The Ramen Budget, a budgeting website for all college students, is covering the details for you.
