Get ready college students! This fall, Passion Pit will be making their way down the East Coast and across the Midwest to play 12 different college campuses on the College Consciousness Tour. The fifth annual trek has previously featured Guster, Drake, Ben Harper, and O.A.R., and seeks to build awareness of environmental sustainability and citizenship. The tour achieves this by partnering with on-campus student groups with an interactive "Eco-Village" on site for each stop of the tour, where students will be able to register to vote, have their photo taken in an Eco-Pledge Photo Booth and more.

"We signed onto the tour because we love the idea of bringing more than just a concert onto these campuses," Passion Pit keyboardist Ian Hultquist said. "The Campus Consciousness Tour has figured out how to combine a cause campaign with a rock tour in a way that only enhances the concert experience."

The tour will also feature performances from hip-hop artist K.Flay and Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears.
