What is Springfest?

SpringFest is the next generation festival: a social impact lifestyle festival designed to discover and launch THE NEXT BIG THING across every field— arts, technology, sustainability, social activism & identity, music, sports, health, and food. Attracting the brightest young minds from around the world, SpringFest is a cultural expression of the way that young people are reshaping every industry and aspect of society. The best part is that all of this innovation takes place right here on campus at the University of Michigan.
