Doobie Palooza is an annual music festival held by The Doobie and the University Programming Council. The festival originated as a casual hangout with student performers outside of the senior apartments in 2014. Since then, the festival has grown and evolved. In 2015, Doobie Palooza featured student performers from many genres from indie-folk to hip hop to electronic. The headliner that year was Brooklyn-based indie-rock group, Beach Fossils.
In 2016, The Doobie incorporated old with new. They featured student performers, but collaborated with the Asian American Association and created a festival with eight acts. The acts included Dumbfoundead, Vundabar, and Nick D' & The Believers.
This past year’s Doobie Palooza (2018) was the biggest yet, featuring Kweku Collins, Crumb, Sarob, and Mungbean along with a variety of student artists! Featuring a new location at the Tower Field, Palooza endured the cold weather and turned out to be a killer show, with room to grow in hopes of adding more interactive elements to the festival in years to come!
