Today the Bacchanal Executive Board released an official statement regarding this year’s annual spring concert, appropriately titled “They Don’t Want You To Bacch.” The show is scheduled to take place on Saturday, April 2, 2016, a date that was chosen “carefully to avoid any religious holidays, Days on Campus, and set-up for graduation.” As we count down the days until Bacchanal (60 to be exact!), the committee is preparing for the official Battle of the Bands contest, which determines the Columbia musical act who will open the show. Additionally, the Bacchanal 2016 crewneck will go on sale this Friday until Monday, February 15, at 11:59PM.

The Bacchanal Executive Board is excited to announce that this year’s Spring Concert, “They Don’t Want You To Bacch” will take place on Saturday, April 2nd, 2016. Bacchanal is officially TWO MONTHS AWAY. This date was chosen carefully to avoid any religious holidays, Days on Campus, and set-up for graduation.

2 months may seem like a long time, but we are preparing for the annual Battle of the Bands and our official crewneck sale. The event pages for these are below, so please check them out!

Think you have what it takes to open the big spring show? 3 years ago, Morningsiders won the Battle of the Bands and now their hit song Empress has over 5 million streams on Spotify. 7 years ago, Vampire Weekend also opened Bacchanal. Submissions are due Thursday, February 11 at 11:59pm.

The official Bacchanal 2016 crewneck will be on sale from this Friday to Monday, February 15 at 11:59pm. Thank you Alex Rosales (BC’18) for the official poster and crewneck design!
