On Thursday, July 16, the space between Modesto A. Maidique Campus’ blue and gold garages will be transformed into a concert area for SummerFest. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. as students prepare for the annual electronic dance music concert with glow foam and a light show featuring artists and DJs. The 2015 lineup includes Obscene, Konflikt, Andres Fresko and headliner BassJackers.
