Blackbear no longer attending FlashFest following COVID exposure

Alexandra Golden, Assigning Editor

Blackbear will not be performing because someone on his team tested positive for COVID-19, according to an Instagram post from Kent State Undergraduate Student Government.


The outdoor portion of FlashFest is unaffected, and will be happening on Risman Plaza and the Student Green from 2 p.m. through 5 p.m. The concert portion begins at 7 p.m. and will feature the Aces and DJ Smilez performing at the MACC.


Tickets, which were originally $25 for lower level and $15 for upper level, are now free to students. Those who have purchased a ticket will receive a refund.
