Spring Fling 2014 has long been clouded in mystery and shrouded in secrecy-- but not anymore! The veil has finally been lifted: the Spring Fling 2014 lineup has offically been announced! And none too soon: the big day is less than two weeks away! This year's event will take on more of a "music festival" format than previous years', featuring a number of artists and groups on an outside stage. Here's the low-down on this year's performers:
Perhaps you recognize these guys from this year's Treefort Music Fest: Jupiter Holiday is a modern rock band from our very own Boise, Idaho, whose jazzy sounds have been compared to MGMT and the Flaming Lips. Fun fact: Jupiter Holiday began with guitarist Mike Bassett and drummer Jason Grazian, who played together in the Borah High School Drum Corps. Talk about hitting close to home. Expect a lively and creative performance from these local music heroes, and be sure to check out their music in advance of Spring Fling 2014.

Peace and love, man! Could Boise State's Spring Fling be the next Woodstock? You never know... especially with artists like Mosley Wotta performing. This Bend, Oregon-based group has R&B sounds that will rock your soul with their positive vibes. "Mosley Wotta" is in fact a pun intended to remind us that we are all mostly made of water. We're all connected-- so listen up and spread the love!
