Juice Jam

As the electronic dance music industry grows, area college students and music lovers try to make their mark.

Attention. Control. Power.

That’s what music has given Danté Belmonte.

With hundreds of people crammed into a tight Westcott Theater, Belmonte commands the crowd alone from his DJ booth.

“I love having the spotlight on me,” Belmonte said. “When you’re playing at a venue that’s sold out with a thousand people, it’s something really cool.

Review: Prior to University Union announcing the headliner hadn't show up, concertgoers enjoyed performances from LOLO, Stephen, Marshmello, D.R.A.M. and Tove Lo during a cloudless day.

The fans waited.

And waited.

But eventually, University Union announced Juice Jam headliner Fetty Wap hadn't shown up, and instructed everybody at Skytop Field on South Campus to  go home.

Haven't heard of every artist who's performing in our backyard on Sunday? Look no further; here's an introductory course on all the amazing sounds that'll be heard in a couple days.

Before classes even began, new and returning students alike were counting down the days until Juice Jam 2016. With buses starting to take students to Skytop Field at 11 a.m. on Sunday, the day has finally come. Headliner Fetty Wap, a New Jersey rapper best known for his hit single “Trap Queen,” will take the stage with Monty alongside other performers including pop artist Tove Lo, DJ and producer Marshmello, rapper D.R.A.M., indie electronic artist Stephen, and rock artist LOLO.

Though the weather was undesirable, both performers and students jammed through for an unforgettable Sunday Funday at Juice Jam 2015.

Port-o-potties lined up: check. Temperature super chilly (oh, you mean a super freezing 61 degrees?) Check. Dark gray clouds in the sky, complimented with a drizzle here and there? Check, check.

Yes, the atmosphere came off a little sad and droopy before the 11th annual Juice Jam show Sunday. But that didn’t stop the event, nor mood of the students getting hyped for the acts of SNBRN, BØRNS, Matt and Kim, iLoveMakonnen, Oliver Heldens and Big Sean.

In the final hurrah before classes pick up pace, music lovers came together for good music, good company and good times.

Some say it'll make you feel like an eager child on Christmas morning. Others claim it's the only good reason to wake up before 9 a.m. on a Sunday. Either way, the 10th annual Juice Jam Music Festival brought music lovers together in a final hurrah before classes pick up pace.

Students pulled out all the stops at this year's Juice Jam. From leopard to neon to denim on denim, the music festival gave students an excuse to show off this season's biggest trends while rocking out to their favorite bands.

While New York Fashion Week was finishing up in NYC, an important day in fashion was happening here in Central New York, as Syracuse students dressed in their festival-finest for the annual back-to-school Juice Jam Festival Sunday at Skytop Field.
