The RECESS Festival is Bringing Music and Ideas to Colleges This Spring

This is one college lecture you don't want to skip.

Has there ever been a better time to be a college student? Sure, an education costs about as much as a small private island nowadays, but beyond your inevitable debt to Uncle Sam, at least you get to enjoy what's now a regular occurrence of huge artists, DJs, festivals, and even musically-themed panels and conferences that are likely invading your campus throughout the school year. That being said, say hello to the RECESS Music & Ideas Festival, which is all of those things.


Presented by Mark Cuban, and adapted from Glowfest—a touring concert series created by two Indiana University Students, RECESS was founded with the goal of creating opportunities for aspiring music-loving college entrepreneurs. This year the festival will be stopping at schools that will be featuring talent including Matt & Kim at Georgetown's Spring Kickoff, T-Pain at Sacred Heart University, Rae Sremmurd + Jeremih at Kent State's FlashFest, and Jesse J + Logic at University of Maryland's Art Attack, and more.

RECESS will also be presenting a multitude of music industry discussions, consisting of a Shark Tank-style business pitch competition, networking fair, and progressive speaker series.

Seamlessly mixing some of the industry's brightest beats with a slew of brain-stimulating discussion, this is the one college lecture you certainly don't want to skip.
