Auburn Airwaves 2017 Frequently Asked Questions

When and where will Auburn Airwaves be?

September 18th in the Auburn Arena.

 

What artists will be performing at Auburn Airwaves?

2 Chainz and The Score will be performing at this year's concert. A third artist is currently in the works.

 

How much are tickets?

Why do we have to pay to attend Auburn Airwaves this year?

Smaller and smaller portions of the student activities fees are being allocated to put on concerts and student programming. Auburn UPC is supplementing with ticketing in order to still put on a concert with big-name artists.

 

Why is Auburn Airwaves in the fall instead of the spring?

Auburn University administration has requested for the concert to be in the fall instead of the spring.

 

What happened to the funds from the spring concert?

Since we are in the same fiscal year, the funds from the spring are being used to put on this fall concert.

 

Will there still be a concert in the spring?

It is to be decided based on the outcome of the budget and finance hearings next month.

 

Why is Auburn Airwaves inside this year?

Because of issues in previous years regarding weather and content, having the concert inside reduces the chances for things to go unexpectedly.

 

Where can I get tickets?

Tickets to Auburn Airwaves 2017 may be purchased at aub.ie/airwaves.

“I've gotten to go to Miami/West Palm Beach/The Keys all in one trip. I've gotten to jet ski, paddle board, jet ski, and snorkel as well as see Ocean Drive in South Beach. But my favorite week of each summer is going to Duck, NC in the Outer Banks. I wake up and watch the sunrise and sit on the beach until the sunsets. It's my favorite because I get to finally read books that I want to read. I read nine books in six days. It's so peaceful and relaxing and the best possible break from the stresses of school and life in general.”

“Working as a Camp War Eagle Parent Counselor has been such a rewarding experience this summer. Interacting with the parents and students of the incoming freshman class, as well as my fellow counselors, has really shown me the meaning of the Auburn Family. This program provided me not only with a summer job, but also a family that I found in my fellow counselors and staff. It will truly be a summer I will never forget.”
