6 Things You Don’t Want to Miss at Spring Fling 2024

Springhamton has officially arrived, which means it’s time for the best event of the year: Spring Fling! This year, festivities kick off at 1 p.m. Saturday, April 27.

Our annual festival is the perfect way to end a great semester. A little tip: it’s best to get an early start to hit as many tables and rides as possible. You can grab some food at the fest, chill with friends, then make your way to the concert at night! Trust me; you won’t want to miss out on all the fun.

Soak up the sunshine, relax before finals and celebrate! Here are some things to look forward to this year at Spring Fling:

Rides

Student Tabling

Every year, the Student Performance Stage welcomes talented groups from campus to showcase their skills. There will be dancers, bands, and a capella groups, so come support your fellow students!

Concert

The student opener, Husband Material, will take the stage at night before the headliners! Come dance, sing along and support some local talent!

Next up catch the Manhattan-based band LAUNDRY DAY, known for songs like “We Switched Bodies” and “Y.K.Y.N.U.N.Y. (You Know You Need Unique New York).”

Headliner Neon Trees will close out the day and will have everyone dancing with pop-rock hits like “Animal” and “Sleeping With a Friend”!
