Quadstock, SU's annual live music and arts festival, returns with a lineup that includes this year’s Battle of the Bands winner. 

Quadstock, now in its 33rd year, has unequivocally become a springtime tradition at Seattle University, with students and the campus community looking forward to the day each year.

This year’s concert, Saturday, May 20 at the Redhawk Center, will feature a musical lineup that includes All Friends Here, the group that won SU’s Battle of the Bands competition. Joining All Friends Here are The Sleepy Haunts, THEM and headliner Ricky Montgomery. The theme of Quadstock is a nod to the 1960s, with performers and attendees encouraged to show up in their best 60’s garb—that includes costumes, too—as the night’s top three best dressed will walk away with some awesome 60s-inspired swag.

“Quadstock is about the Seattle University community coming together to celebrate student engagement through our common love of music,” says Quadstock Co-Chair An Than ’23.

Besides having four live band performances, there will also be an opportunity for clubs to participate. Clubs will be present at the event with their own booths fundraising and promoting their events on campus. In addition to great food there will also be the always fun photobooth.

“We have been working so hard all year to make Quadstock a night that SU students won’t forget,” says Quadstock Co-Chair Caitlin Haydon, ‘24. “It’ll be amazing to see everyone showing up and dancing together.”
