The dude with the hair from MTV's Jersey Shore will be headlining Utep's Minerpalooza this year! If you're planning on heading out to Minerpalooza, be prepared for a HUGE crowd this year.

According to Utep officials they're expecting up to 30,000 people on Friday, August 31 this year. DJ Pauly D is claimed to be the most highest paid DJs on Forbes Magazine. This student engagement event will have a lot for you to do like an inflatable zip line, grubbing out from the food trucks, a playground, and much more! The 28th annual celebration will take place from 6 to 11 pm launching the academic school year with a great start. There will be local eats, epic attractions as well as the astounding lineup. Like every year before, Minerpalooza is open to the public and STILL free to attend. This event is definitely going to bring everyone together and be one hell of a party before the school year starts. I will bet money that DJ Pauly D will get most of the crowd fist pumping to his set at Minerpalooza. Whether you're a fan or not of DJ Pauly D for his craziness on Jersey Shore or his music, this is something you will want to be a part of.

The students going back to school this year are sure getting one hell of a welcome back to school bash!
