Tradition interrupted! Low Steps will not bear witness to the Abacchalyse. Instead, Bachannal organizers confirmed today in an email that the concert will unconventionally be held on the West Lawn in front of Butler. Columbia’s event management people made a “managerial error” and overlooked a conflict with the construction of graduation bleachers. So unless you’re on your feet, dancing the night away, your butt might get wet.
Full email below.
Hello Columbia Community,
Bacchanal was notified on Monday that due to construction of the graduation bleachers, we will not be able to have the stage in its traditional location on Low Plaza. Despite our booking the space in November, there appears to have been a managerial error regarding the space reservation which was not noticed until this past weekend.
Instead, the stage will be located on the West Lawn, in front of Butler Library. If you are facing Butler, it is the large lawn on the right.
While the move is very challenging for us logistically and financially, we are working closely with public safety, facilities and University Event Management to ensure that the concert is still face-meltingly awesome for you.
We appreciate your understanding and look forward to seeing you on April 30th.
