UVA: Springfest

UVA SPRINGFEST 2014 on Nameless field

UVA Springfest is one of the biggest events hosted at UVA each year. It is a huge concert held at Nameless field in late March or early April. They have had some great acts in the past like Ben Folds and Ok Go. They have not announced who they have this year yet, but continue to check back here or post it in the comments if you find out.

SpringfestĀ  also includes carnival style games” such as an obstacle course and a bungee run. A side stage will include the annual Battle of the Bands competition as well as the Gus Burger Eating contest.

The event is completely free thanks to corporate sponsors like Ben & Jerry’s. In 2006, 485 students from fraternities, sororities, clubs and campus organizations competed in the Vermonster (a Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream Eating Contest).

Springfest is definitely a great excuse to take a weekend road trip up to UVA.

Here is two years ago’s flyer courtesy of cVillian:
