Disco Lines is our featured headliner for the 48-hour pre-sale competition = Top 4 schools win. Ship Wrek will headline our three President's Award winners. Those are determined by a combination of pre-sales during the competition and their business plans (AKA Pitch) on why we should bring it there.
Campuses compete for spots on our college tours. Our innovative pre-sale ticketing approach transforms the way college concerts are organized and sold, giving students the power to bring emerging artists to their campus. It's in your hands to make it a reality! You don't need to be a wealthy fraternity or part of a programming board to buy this. We eliminate middle-buyers, politics, and red tape. Anyone with a passion can compete and win.
Anyone with the enough guts and passion to spark a movement! In the past, the most successful campus tycoons have been social chairs of their sororities or fraternities, influencers, athletes, DJs, promoters, or just someone who loves a challenge. You will be rallying your student body to purchase tickets to an unknown date or location, and you’ll have 48-hours to do it
The pre-sale competition starts Feb 20th, 2024 at 4pm EST. The top schools with the most pre-sale tickets in 48 hours win. Leaderboards are updated throughout. There’s so much fun (and anxiety).
Great question. We place "holds" on credit cards but we only charge the credit cards for the pre-sale if your school wins. The non-winning colleges have their credit cards voided immediately. We've been doing this for six years. without issues.
They’ll be in the $33 range with no taxes or fees. First 100 tickets for each school are free with a special code.
Before the competition begins, think about creative ways to get people talking about this across campus and socials. Assemblying a strong team who’s well connected to Greek Life, popular bars, student residences, promoters, DJ’s, content creators and influencers is the perfect place to start. Starting your promotional plan by mid-January or earlier is crucial.
We’ll work behind the scenes with with every competing college to determine the best venue location in advance. We place date "holds" at the venues which don't interfere with Spring Break, mid-terms, finals or any important event happening.
Anywhere from late March through early May. We’ll work together to avoid not having it during mid-terms, finals or anything important.
The Up & Up Festival works closely with campus ambassadors, artist managers/booking agents, venue owners, production/security companies to craft an incredible experience.
If your school wins, your hard work as an ambassador has earned you 30 meet & greets, All Access passes, curating the opening acts, cash bonuses, potential after parties and introducing the artist on stage. Most of our previous college ambassadors have said it was the “highlight of their college career.”
