Coachella, Smokers Fest, and some new names like Blurry Vision are just some of the many festivals heading to California this year, equating into a more competitive West Coast scene for music fans than previously assumed. Due to heavy scalpers and high prices, the decision for most is to go to decide on one festival amongst a group of friends, and one soon. This has become a bit more hectic considering two heavy hitters, Outside Lands in San Francisco and FYF Fest in Los Angeles, have yet to announce their slates of artists. In fact, it's not uncommon for students to complain about a certain lineup, if they’ve bought tickets in advance.

WOODSIDE, CA- Woodside High School is set to put on its Winter Formal dance, hoping to rekindle student interest in the event after a disappointing turnout last year. The Winter Formal dance, a staple of school-wide social gatherings in previous years, upended a trend of increased attendance at school dances last year when most of the student body snubbed the event. Staff and students widely believe that the student body’s lack of interest was largely due to the fact that the dance was scheduled in early December, shortly after the Homecoming dance. “Not a lot of people went,” Karina Bridgeman, a senior who attended the dance last year, admitted. “Once a few people said that they weren’t going, it kind of backfired over everybody.” This year, the student leadership Winter Dance committee, the sophomore class, and the Board of Student Affairs are working hard to revive the event to win back the trust of the students and recreate the excitement that once surrounded the dance. However, for the sophomore class, there is much more than an exciting dance at stake.
