MUSIC Matters hosts the SpringFest music festival for the UMich community

MUSIC Matters, a student organization dedicated to driving social change through music, held its annual SpringFest concert at Palmer Field on Saturday. One of the largest student-run events at the University of Michigan, SpringFest aims to bring the campus community together through advocacy, dance and music, according to the MUSIC Matters website. About 200 music lovers from the UM community attended this year’s event.

This year, 10 student music and dance groups performed at the eight-hour festival, which included food trucks and sponsored giveaways. MUSIC Matters has also partnered with other student organizations, including Wolverine Support Network, to provide an opportunity to connect with a variety of campus organizations.

LSA Junior Anna Lehrer served as Chair of this year’s SpringFest for MUSIC Matters. In her role, she oversees the entire planning process, which began in the summer of 2021. Teacher said one of her favorite things about the festival is the way it introduces students to the campus music scene and provides opportunities for student artists to perform.
