UNC's Connor Community is hosting its 14th annual Connorstock event on Friday. The event is the Connor Community’s take on the Woodstock music festival and will include free food, live music, free T-shirts and numerous activities for students to enjoy.
The Connor Community Government has been working over the past few months to ensure Connorstock is a success. Sophie Pruett, the head of entertainment, is in charge of organizing the activities, food and music performances that will be provided. Tie-dying, sand volleyball and temporary tattoos are a few of the many activities that will be provided at the event.
“We want this to be a safe space for people to come out and hang out, chill on the quad in Connor," Pruett said. "Just mingle, meet new people, meet old people, it is what you make of it kind of thing.”
The musical performances will be by UNC students that the Connor Community is trying to support by featuring at this event. Barker Road, Benji, Addison Scott and Scott Hallyburton will be featured. Connor residents can also sign up for open mic performances.
“We are trying to use the theme of performers and student performers to amplify the whole music festival vibe you get from Woodstock,” said Adrian Meyer, the Connor Community Governor.
