Gator Growl Lineup Announced
Gainesville, FL -- They've been dropping hints all week, but the secret's out! The Producers for UF's Gator Growl have released the names of this year's talent -- the musical performers at Gator Growl 2014 will be Ludacris and Foster the People. The event will be hosted by Comedian Brooks Wheelan.
In recent years attendance to the event has been declining - leaving some wondering if the show is for students or alumni. According to the event's Executive Producer, Devin McDaniel, "we surveyed students, we asked them who they wanted to see, we had a whiteboard out and at preview and we just asked people, who would you want to see at Gator Growl if you were choosing?"
The venue will also be changing this year, from the Ben Hill Griffin Stadium to Flavet Field. McDaniel said this will allow for a more interactive and intimate show.
In recent years attendance to Gator Growl has been dwindling - in 1998 ticket sales were at 75,000. Last year only 15,000 were sold - leaving tens of thousands of empty seats at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium - which seats about 90,000.
