We have received information from a Bacchanal committee member confirming multiple tips that Rae Sremmurd, Marian Hill, and Bibi Bourelly are this year’s headliners for the annual Spring Bacchanal concert. According to our source, Public Safety and administrators in charge of planning Bacchanal are stonewalling the Committee from sharing any information about this year’s headliners with the student body until after all the tickets have been reserved.
As was previously announced, the student band EVELINE will open the concert following their Battle of the Bands win. EVELINE features Zibo Gao, CC ’19, Sias Merkling, CC ’19, Bruce Young, CC ’19, Nick Greene, SEAS ’19, and Marco Starger SEAS ’19. DJ Kassius Klay (aka Klay Roberts, CC ’16) came in second, and will be the house DJ for Bacchanal. This year’s concert theme is “They Don’t Want You to Bacch.”
The concert will take place on Saturday, April 2, 2016 on Low Steps from 12:30 to 6:00PM and is expected to be a much longer show than last year’s performance. Unlike last year’s concert, which required students to pay a $7 ticket fee, this year’s show will return to being free of charge to all undergraduate students in CC, SEAS, BC, and GS. Each undergraduate is allowed to reserve only one ticket in their name for the show, and as a general reminder, tickets are being released in four waves of 1,000 at the following times on Eventbrite:
Thursday March 24th: 11:30AM
Friday March 25th: 6:00PM
Saturday March 26th: 11:00AM
Monday March 28th: 8:00PM
We have received no update yet on the stage layout situation.
The Bacchanal Committee has declined to comment on any information from our source regarding the mechanics of this year’s show, including headliners, ticket distribution, and stage set-up.
