WHAT IS EAST BY EAST LANSING?

Founded by two courageous, do-good loving music junkies in 2015, East By East Lansing™ (stylized as EXEL) is the only annual music and arts festival held on Michigan State University's campus. Curated by Michigan State University's own IMPACT 89FM Student Radio Station and backed by Pi Sigma Epsilon Co-Ed Business Fraternity, it's always a good time of the year. To put it simply, we are the embodiment of everything a good event should be:

Locally grounded

All of the performing, vending, and merchandising acts involved in EXEL are locally based. We love our city and firmly believe in supporting quality local businesses.

Charitable and forward-moving

Teaming up with NO MORE means more than just having a cause to fund, it gives us a way to spread a vital message on our campus: sexual assault has no place here. We wear the NO MORE mission with pride, and benefit them with donations from festival revenue.

Made with the future in mind

East By East Lansing began with students, and we want to keep it moving with students. We think that—as an event that's run by The IMPACT 89FM—it could make a pretty cool capstone class for Michigan State University students to test their production skills in. Hint, hint, MSU.
