Hello and welcome to Festival Forecast! My name is Ryan Blair and I am a Senior Mass Media Communication major at Illinois State University. I currently work at ISU’s radio station 103.3 WZND as a DJ, teaching assistant, and an office manager. Over the course of my senior year I will be using this website as a showcase for musical performances. Many of the concerts featured will be in the central Illinois region, but there are big events scheduled across the United States. Throughout the year Festival Forecast will provide festival/concert previews, news, and reviews. Joe Lazaro will also be taking photographs and helping me provide coverage for events. If you want us to attend your festival/concert let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
