From Rachie Weisberg ’15
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.
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. Its application process is open to the student body, its selection process based on experience and merit. Those unhappy with the Spring Fling booking process would do well to take note: here’s the opportunity to get involved.
Spring Fling is an all-campus outdoor concert that happens on Foss Hill every May. In the past, artists like Tune-Yards, The Dirty Projectors, KENDRICK, and TV on the Radio have come to rock out 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.
If you would like to become a member of Spring Fling Committee in the 2014-2015 school year, please answer the following questions in the application (either in an email or an attached word document) and send them to ecardona[at]wesleyan[dot]edu by noon on Friday, September 26th. We will review the applications and contact applicants for interviews. The committee meets once a week according to member availability.
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)
1) Why do you want to be on Spring Fling Committee?
2) What have you enjoyed about past Spring Flings? What would you change? If you have not been to a Spring Fling at Wesleyan please share your best live music experience and what made it the best?
3) Who would you like to bring next year? Please give a few specific examples of potential line-ups.
4) Considering our total budget for talent is $60,000, 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?
5) Can you share an experience you had planning an event and what skills you brought to the planning team?
