GREAT LAKES FOLK FEST NEWS & UPDATES: Performance, music clips now posted online
GLFF SCHEDULE POSTED ONLINE!
The GLFF performance schedule has been posted! We always call this a tentative schedule as we continue to fine-tune for a weekend where we keep our artists hopping -- music sets on multiple stages, quick change-overs, and special showcase performances throughout! (Note that with the construction and changes to our GLFF site this year, City Hall Stage will be our main open-air music venue, and it has been relocated -- and expanded -- in the city hall parking lot.)
Again this year, we are using the SCHED event organizer system. When you go to the schedule page, click the schedule arrow for options: view the schedule by day, by stage, in list or grid, as well as in a printable format.
There's also a QR code to use with smart phones. A mobile-friendly version is available for iPhone, Android and Blackberry. Special Thanks to MSU Office of Campus Sustainability for their sponsorship of the GLFF mobile web app. Check it out here.
