Common - 40 Acres Fest - April 1, 2006

Awesome! Thanks to Ebunoluwa... we were made aware that Common will be headlining this years 40 Acres Fest! The fest is on Saturday, April 1st and Common will be coming on at 7pm.

Reminds me of the time when Tone Loc came to 40 Acres Fest when I was still in school... oh the memories... hahaha... peace out!

From site:

"The story of how FAF was started is an interesting one. Before FAF, Greek organizations held a parade in the spring called Round-up, which dates back to the 1950's. However, in 1992, Round-up's disruptive behavior forced the university from sponsoring them. In the fall of 1993, a group of students set out to organize an event celebrating the diverse interests of the student body at the largest university in the nation. The festival took on the motto of being "by students, for students," and drew its name from the original forty acres of land on which the University of Texas at Austin was founded."
