Why can’t SPB announce WILD artists earlier?
As much as we would love to, for legal concerns, we must wait until all contracts are finalized before announcing the artists. For more information on SPB’s booking process, please visit the How SPB Works page.
Why is WILD on a Friday and not a Saturday?
Historically, Saturday WILDs have produced an increased health risk for students, with an overwhelming number of students visiting the EMS and EST tents for serious health concerns related to alcohol consumption. In collaboration with WashU campus partners, SPB decided it is in the best interest of the students and their health to have WILD on Fridays.
Does WILD go on rain or shine?
In the case of a tornado or other weather emergency, WILD has an Evacuation Plan in place that is updated each semester with the WashU Office of Emergency Management. SPB tracks the weather prior to the event and decides on a plan. In the case of rain, the concert will still continue and set times may be shortened. In the case of extreme weather, there are no indoor venues on campus that can accommodate both the production level WILD requires and the number of students that attend the event. Unfortunately, in these rare circumstances, WILD will be cancelled.
Are guest tickets available for WILD?
Yes, guest tickets are available for WILD and must be purchased in advance. Tickets are $35 each and must be bought by a host student with a WUSTL ID. All guests must enter day-of at the Guest Table at the January Entrance with their host. Please note, guest tickets are non-transferable and all sales are final.
What’s the drinking policy at WILD?
There will be no alcohol served this 2023 Spring WILD.
Why can’t I bring an empty water bottle into the Quad at WILD?
To help maintain a safe environment at WILD and reduce waiting times at the event’s entrances, SPB, in collaboration with WUPD, enforces a no container policy, even if the container is empty. SPB is committed to providing access to free beverages, such as water and other soft drink products, once a guest arrives at WILD.
