Throughout the years, bands from area high schools and colleges or other young musicians have taken the stage to deliver everything from rock, hip hop, folk, electronica and metal. This year, about 35 bands vied for just 12 spots on the Broomstock lineup.
Last year, 24 bands took the stage. This year, Broomstock is reorganizing its lineup to include half the bands and started about two hours later than previous years in order to give bands more time to play.
Between 1,500 and 2,000 students typically attend Broomstock each year.
