This Saturday, Associated Students will host the fourth annual GreenFest Festival, which serves to “encourage, advocate for and celebrate sustainability (and) Aztec Pride.” Billed on the main stage are popular acts such as electronic musician Max Vangeli, house music duo EC Twins and San Diego-based disc jockey and producer Jason Ross.

Taking the Shade Stage are four types of musicians: hip-hop artist Carl David Sharpe (Sincere), DJ Keevo, rapper 3D and house / electro duo Win.Rawr. Performing on the Solar Stage are Hawaiian reggae band Hi Roots, alternative / progressive rock band Zone of the Interior, K.O. Hip-Hop Dance Team, rock band The Morning After SDSU’s Pacific Islander Student Association.

However, the main headliner, southern rapper T-Pain, is who students are most excited about. With hits such as “Buy U a Drank” and “I’m ‘n Luv (Wit a Stripper),” students are looking forward to a night of entertainment and fun music. Some students are anticipating Saturday night for nostalgic reasons.

“(He) reminds me of high school when his music was really popular,” English and math junior Laura Palossari said. She thought he was a good choice because attending his concert will be “a throwback to my teenage years.”

However, some people aren’t as “sprung” to see T-Pain perform. Political science junior Aaron Turcios said he doesn’t get it.

“Nobody listens to him anymore … He was big when we were in high school, what new stuff is he going to perform now? And isn’t auto tune dead?” Turcios said.

T-Pain fan or not, this event’s goal is “to continue raising awareness” by hosting “sustainable, social, cultural, recreational and educational events,” so no one can deny the importance of an occasion like this. Tickets are available at Viejas Arena Ticket Office for $10 per student and $25 per guest. For more information visit as.sdsu.edu/greenfest.
