In years past, students living in Hope and Slater dorms have been given free, guaranteed Spring Weekend tickets if the concerts were held outdoors. This policy was originally instated because of a security plan where students would have had trouble getting in and out of the dorms. Students in fact have no problem accessing their dorms through doors that are not blocked off by snow fencing. Because we anticipate selling out this year and in years to come, and want as many students as possible to have a fair and equal chance of getting tickets, we have decided to end the free Hope/Slater ticket policy starting with this year’s Spring Weekend. This change will not affect which doors students are able to use- the same doors as last year and years past will be accessible to residents. The ONLY change is that free tickets will not be issued. So to all Hope/Slater residents- make sure to purchase your tickets at 8am on Monday, April 15th!

Q: When will tickets go on sale?

A:  On Monday, April 15th, at 8am 3200 tickets per day (our indoor capacity) will go on sale. Brown community members are allowed to purchase up to one ticket each.

On Wednesday, April 17th at 2pm if the weather call is to have the concert outdoors, an additional 2300 tickets per day will go on sale.  Brown community members are allowed to purchase up to one ticket each (this means if you bought one on Monday, you can’t buy another one).

On Thursday, April 18th (@ 8am), and up until the day of the concerts, if tickets are not sold out, Brown community members are allowed to purchase up to a total of three tickets each (one for themselves, and two for guests).

If the shows do not sell out, the remaining tickets will be available for purchase at the doors by credit card only.

Tickets are nonrefundable. Before Thursday tickets are only transferable between Brown community members. Additional guest tickets purchased Thursday (available only if the show is outdoors) can be given to non-Brown community members.
