Wanna help plan Spring Fling, book artists, and have unadulterated access to the most top-secret listserv on campus? You’re interested in Spring Fling Committee (the artist formally known as Social Committee), not Concert Committee (remember Concert Committee handles money, we handle the students of Wesleyan). Anyway, Spring Fling Committee remains a committee like any other, which happens to exert massive control over one of the biggest campus events of the year and funding thereof.
In case you’re confused, Spring Fling is an all-campus outdoor concert that happens on Foss Hill every May. In the past, artists like The Dirty Projectors, KENDRICK LAMAR, and TV on the Radio have come perform for Wesleyan’s student body. Spring Fling Committee works throughout the year to put together a multiple-act show that brings the most current and enjoyable bands to campus in an effort to please the entire student body.
Its application process is open to the student body, its selection process based on experience and merit. If you were unhappy with last year’s booking process, or are a frosh and just want to be part of a group that has soooo much power, here’s the opportunity to get involved for the 2013-2014 school year: please answer the questions past the jump (either in an email or an attached word document) and submit them to Elisa Cardona (ecardona[at]wesleyan[dot]edu) by Monday, September 9th.
Concert Committee Application:
Interested in being Chair of the Committee?
Y / N
(if yes, and you are not selected for chair, your application will automatically be considered for normal committee membership)
- Why do you want to be on Spring Fling Committee?
- What have you enjoyed about past Spring Flings? What would you change? If you have not been to a Spring Fling here, say not applicable.
- Who would you like to bring next year? Please give a few specific examples of potential line-ups, not a list of all your favorite bands.
- Considering our budget, do you think it’s better to try to bring as many acts as possible, or would you rather spend the money on one big act? Why?
- What were the best shows you went to this summer? Why?
- Can you share an experience you had planning an event and what skills you brought to the planning team?
If you have any questions, please email past committee members Rachie Weisberg ’15 (rweisberg[at]wesleyan[dot]edu) or Jake Ewald ’14 (jewald[at]wesleyan[dot]edu)
