REMINDER: Spring Weekend tickets go on sale tomorrow

Spring Weekend tickets go on sale tomorrow morning at 8 AM on Brown Marketplace.  1000 will be sold each day for the next three days.  Tickets cost $20 per night (or $40 for both).  Let’s hope this goes a little smoother than last year.  Find full information on ticketing, including when and how students will be able to purchase a second ticket, after the jump.

From BCA ticketing chair Sandy Ryza (’12):

Tickets will go on sale the week after Spring Break, on Brown Marketplace (

1000 tickets for each concert will be released to members of the Brown Community each day on Wednesday, April 6th, Thursday, April 7th, and Friday, April 8th on Brown Marketplace ( at 8 am.  There will be an initial limit of 1 ticket per person (Brown ID).

No tickets will be sold to the general public.

Ticket Distribution

Tickets will be distributed using BCA’s new electronic ticketing system.  Print-at-home tickets will be sent to the email addresses provided in the ticket orders.  Emails will not be sent automatically after purchases, but in batches at the end of the day.

Weather Call

If weather permits us to hold the concerts on the main green, additional tickets will go on sale at 1 pm on Wednesday, April 13th.

Hope and Slater

Residents of Hope and Slater will receive free tickets if (and only if) the concert is held on the main green.  After the weather call has been made, residents who have not bought tickets can request free tickets, and residents who have already bought tickets can request a refund.

Additional Tickets

After the weather call is made, the one-ticket limit will remain for 24 hours, after which members of the Brown and RISD community will be able to buy additional tickets (and give them to guests and alumni).  We chose this policy because of the numerous complaints we received last year about Brown students not being able to attend the shows when visiting guests were able to.

We’ll monitor ticket sales and depending on how quickly tickets sell, we may evaluate lifting the one-ticket limit sooner.

The BCA is also working to have subsidized tickets available for financial aid recipients.
