Battle of the Bands is canceled, but in brighter news The Bacchanal Executive Board is starting to leak some information. Most significantly the headliner will be announced April 1st. Read below for the full press release.

We regret the missteps that led to the cancellation of this year’s Battle of the Bands, which was supposed to be held at the Beta House. To ensure that the student opener selection process for this year’s Bacchanal Spring Concert remains democratic and transparent, we will be holding open student voting on the Lerner Ramps next Monday through Thursday, from 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM each day.

Students will be allowed one vote per UNI, and will have the opportunity to listen to submissions from our student acts on the ramps, which range from acoustic singer/songwriter duos to EDM DJs. As always, we’re excited to showcase the broad range of talent that we are so lucky to have on campus, so profiles of each act will be available at the booth.

Come by, hang out, munch on some snacks, listen to some music, and determine the future of the Bacchanal Spring Concert, a time-honored Columbia tradition.

Much love and stay safe,

The Bacchanal Executive Board

P.S. We can’t wait to announce our headliner on April 1st!
