Campus Brief: Music festival rescheduled for fall 2012 date

The Do Good Music Festival that was set to take place April 28 at the Wood County Fairgrounds has been postponed. The event, from the creators of “nine fest” at Ohio University, was cancelled because the venue overbooked, said Banan Alkilani general manager at Clazel.

“It is the first year for the festival, and it is at a critical point,” Alkilani said. “The first year sets the bar, and we didn’t want issues to put a bad taste in people’s mouths.”

A definite time has not yet been determined, but Alkilani said people should plan for it to be sometime in fall 2012.

The event will be an all day music festival where patrons can watch some new, up and coming acts and bring their own drinks, if they are of the legal drinking age, according to the Do Good Music Festival’s Facebook page.

The Do Good program was developed “to highlight and showcase the good works of local organizations and non-profits groups in our region,” according to Clazel’s website.

People who purchased tickets for the festival will be fully refunded, according to a statement on the event Facebook page.
