Welcome to the April 2019 edition of The Grind. Read on for the latest updates about our new festival series, app, content plans, and specially designed apparel in a store near you.

Have You Heard About FYG U?
 

This year, we’re throwing 10 cutting-edge music and tech festivals at college campuses around the nation. We're calling the series FYG U.

After a brilliant turnout for our first go-round at Florida State (check out the crowd in the photo below), we're thrilled to share with you the music headliners for our next two FYG U Festivals. On April 27, we're at Texas State University with Alison Wonderland headlining. Then, on May 11, we move north to the University of Oregon with Little Yachty headlining. 


 
All our FYG U stops, including seven yet to be announced for this fall, will showcase:
  • Featured performances from artists like DaniLeigh, Nightly, Half the Animal, and Malachi in addition to headliners;
  • An onsite esports tournament and student talent showcase;
  • Illuminating discussions of tech and entertainment from the UMusic X FYG speaker series
All 10 of this year's events are 100 percent free to students, which wouldn't be possible without the generous sponsorship of our partners — Universal Music Group and Prime Student — or without our festival producers, Big Noise Live. Secure your free tickets here.

Content Spotlight


Expect to see tons more content on FindYourGrind.com (and the app!) as we approach the summer months, including ramped-up Lifestyle blogging and long-form interviews with fascinating professionals from emerging and evolving career fields.

But have you checked out the dozens upon dozens of terrific interviews already on FindYourGrind.com? These are conversations with world-changing voices from diverse professional realms. Let’s spotlight a few:

Ruth E. Carter: Costume Designer

We were lucky enough to speak with Ruth E. Carter before she became an Oscar winner this year, the first black woman to ever win the Academy Award for Costume Design. Going by our Lifestyle Assessment, Carter is a Maker and Creator through and through. Just listen to the way she talks about her emotional and social connection to costuming on films like Black Panther (for which she won the Oscar), Selma, and Malcolm XWatch Now.

Angelov Farooq: School Board Member / Entrepreneur
Speaking of inspiring people, Dr. Angelov Farooq tells us about the passion and vision it takes to strengthen and inspire his hometown of Riverside, California. The Riverside Unified School Board Member wears many hats, and while it’s easy to see what makes him a Leader, young Organizers could really learn a thing or two from this tireless public servant and entrepreneur.
