"Idk, they'll announce it at the silent rave(formally free hot dog day)"
Free yearly concert thrown by Rutgers University for the students that is open to the public as well.
Some previous acts include Kanye West, Third Eye Blind, Everclear, Sugar Ray, Fabolous, Ludacris, Reel Big Fish, Method Man, Fuel, N.E.R.D, Talib Kweli, Brand New, Motion City Soundtrack and more.
Apparently there are also carnival rides, moon bounces--other stuff like that. Sounds great, but unfortunately another Rutgersfest tradition includes getting so shitfaced on College Ave Campus that you miss the concert altogether.
It's all good though, we'll get em next year.
"The Rutgersfest lineup this year is awesome, we need to get our shit together and make it to the concert this time. Seriously."

Students take this as a day to party. Fraternities start drinking in the morning and have bbq's all day, other students just drink all day.
During this great day for students, people from new Brunswick (townies) and others from NJ cities come in to party. They cause trouble and are often gang affiliated. On Rutgersfest, the town of New Brunswick becomes unsafe due to these Hoodrats.
Pardon me officer, but was the individual who just started the fight with our entire fraternity from Rutgers? No? We figured.
Holy Shit!! Those guys just lit a car on fire!
Hey You! Don't pee on the Nissan Maxima!
They must be freshmen, they're outside during rutgersfest.
