Four artists performed at this year’s FlashFest: Kendrick Lamar, Steve Aoki, Bad Rabbits and 5 & A Dime. The performances began at 6 p.m. in the Memorial Athletic and Convocation Center (MAC Center).

“FlashFest serves as an end-of-the-year bash for all students,” said Kent State student Kayli Gatts, who is in charge of social media and publicity for the Undergraduate Student Government. “It’s a sign that the end of the spring semester is near and summer is coming.”

FlashFest also serves as the biggest event for FLASHperks giveaways of the year. FLASHperks awarded four grand prizes at this year’s FlashFest, including free tuition for one year, six-months of free rent to Campus Pointe Apartments, a Surly Pugsley bike from Portage Cyclery and free pizza from Domino’s for one year. FLASHperks is an incentive program through Kent State that offers students prizes for attending university-sponsored events.

“The FLASHperks team works throughout the year to make sure students are rewarded for their involvement on campus,” said Amy Kittle, a Kent State graduate assistant at the Center for Student Involvement. “FlashFest is the biggest event of the year for FLASHperks because we get to award our grand prizes to students who have participated in the many events and activities Kent State has to offer.”

Karmaloop’s Verge Campus 2013 Spring Tour presented FlashFest 2013 at Kent State.  Sponsors of the tour included Karmaloop, Neff Headwear and e Muze.
