Volapalooza is a free concert hosted at Fiji Island in Fraternity Park at The University of Tennessee. This annual event normally takes place at the end of the school year and draws about 1,000 UT students for the night of fun. In the past the All Campus Events committee has been able to bring in some pretty big bands like Ben Folds, Cake, and Dashboard Confessional.

You can watch the concert from the grass field know as Fiji Island or from a porch of one of the many surrounding fraternity houses. Although the concert is the real draw of the event it’s the effect that the concert has that makes the weekend even more fun. When the concert is over and is done setting the tone for a fun weekend the party moves from fraternity row to all of the bars on the strip. The will be even more lively than your average weekend in Knoxville.
