Former 'Idol' finalist headlines Festival of Music at Polytechnic campus

April 02, 2012

The ASU Polytechnic campus will host its Festival of Music from 4 to 9 p.m., April 5, at the Parade Grounds on the west side of campus. The event will feature music, games and booths by ASU polytechnic student organizations. 

Former “American Idol” finalist, Jackie Tohn, will headline the event. Tohn appeared on season eight, making it to the top 36 (the semifinals). She also competed in the songwriting competition series “Platinum Hit” on the Bravo network last year.

Jamie Reynolds, Phoenix resident and the lead vocalist and guitarist for the band 1967, will also play at the Festival of Music.

Sponsored by the Programming and Activities Board (PAB), the event is part of the campus’ Thing on Thursday line-up. Thing on Thursday is a College of Technology and Innovation initiative that hosts interactive and campus-wide events every Thursday throughout the school year. 

“The Festival of Music is a great way for students to learn more about different organizations on campus and have fun at the same time,” said Lauren Jeffrey, PAB president. “In addition to Jackie Tohn, we will also feature some local bands. We would love for students from all campuses to come join us at for a great evening of music and games.”
