Unfortunately due to low temperatures, and poor field conditions, Spring Fest 2018 will be held inside the Alumni Arena.

Weather forecast for fest, all temperatures below 60 degrees


This year's Spring Fest will be hosting:

A$AP Ferg
Ty Dolla $ign
& Daniel Caesar

on May 5, 2018


The location will either be Baird Point, Governor's C&D Parking Lot or inside the Alumni Arena. We will update everyone once the weather call is made. 

Every Fall and Spring for the past 40+ years, Fall & Spring Fest's have brought together the Undergraduate population like no other campus program could. We've brought some of the biggest artists of all time through to perform for the UB Students.


Some General Info: 

  • We no longer sell tickets to the outside public. Students are able to purchase a single guest ticket that which allow them to bring their friends or family.
  • UB Students can reserve their ticket online prior to the show at tickets.sa.buffalo.edu
  • All tickets are assigned to a specific zone, which guarantees you a spot in that zone. If Fest is held outdoors, the Blue & Red zones will be combined into 1 zone.
  • Once you have reserved your ticket, you can come pick that ticket up at the SBI ticket office (221 Student Union) - We will let you know when this starts
  • Undergraduates are entitled to 1 FREE ticket each; until SA runs out of available tickets.
  • Your specific ticket will be tied to your UBID. This pairing will be verified when you enter the venue. The ID used to obtain the ticket MUST be the same ID used when you enter with that ticket.
  • Tickets will be reserved on a first-come, first-serve basis. We are limited by the amount of room in our venues. We will accommodate as many people as safety will allow.
  • If tickets are still available by the time the doors open, we will make these tickets available to UB Undergraduates who arrive before 9:45pm.
  • Tickets will ONLY be given to UB Undergraduate Students, with a valid UBID. The UB Undergraduate Student Association pays for this event entirely. No other student governments (graduate, medical, law, etc) have contributed to funding this event.

*** Your UBID will be essential to entering Fest. Without it, we cannot allow you to enter. It is your responsibility to make sure that your card is in good working order and in your possession the day of the show. Please replace your card at the UB Card office if your card is worn out or not working.***

We attempt to hold Fall Fest outside each year. Unfortunately, we have to make this weather call days in advance of the show, based on the best information available to us. If weather allows, we will try to hold Fall Fest at Baird Point first, the Arena Lot next to the Stadium second, and in as a last option, inside the Alumni Arena.

We will announce the location of Fall Fest Wednesday August 30 by 5pm.
