Students who were unable to get tickets for the 2019 Springtime of Youth Music Festival can pick up one of the nearly 900 tickets left on a first-come, first-serve basis Thursday and Friday.

The remaining tickets will be available 9 a.m.- 4 p.m. at a ticket booth in front of the Arkansas Union food court, said junior Riley Porcarello, a member of the Headliners Concert Committee.

“We wanted to make sure that every student that wanted to go was able to go,” Porcarello said. “If they reserved their tickets, but didn’t pick them up on time, we wanted to make it easier for every student to have access to tickets. I feel like every student has a right to get a ticket, because they paid for their student fees.”

The Springtime of Youth Music Festival will take place at 3:30 p.m. April 27 at the Washington County Fairgrounds. Gates will open at 3:15 p.m., according to the Office of Student Activities.

Non-students who want to buy tickets can purchase them on the Walton Arts Center website for  $30 plus taxes and fees, Porcarello said.

Food vendors including Mamaka Bowls and Burton’s Creamery will be at the music festival, Porcarello said.

If it rains Saturday, the event will continue as planned unless there is severe thunder and lightning, Porcarello said. Attendees should not bring containers, but they can bring clear bags and sealed water bottles.
