McMaster is facing off for the second time with Queen’s University for a free concert with Steve Aoki, Dragonette and Young Empires.

The annual TD Pump It Up contest has once again drawn an enthusiastic response from students on Facebook and Twitter. The contest offers three concerts to participating colleges and universities across Canada – one to each of its featherweight, lightweight and heavyweight divisions.

Last year, Queen’s won in the heavyweight division by outvoting McMaster. Both universities boast a tight-knit student community with a strong social media presence.

To vote, students must register on the contest website using their Facebook login or email address.

Currently, the contest site shows it is a tight race between the two universities.

To get to the finals this year, McMaster beat the University of Ottawa and Mohawk College, while Queen’s edged out Langara College in  B.C. and Ryerson University.

The contest will close in less than 24 hours, on Monday Oct. 1 at 10 a.m. Those who vote will receive an email with the results when they are available.
