You won’t be able to bring a guest to Springfest – here’s what you need to know
Lets hope the headliner makes it on stage this time…
The USC spring concert is fast approaching, and the Concert Committee has announced some new regulations to make sure the dangerous situation that happened last year doesn't repeat itself.
Last year, the concert was shut down after the crowds got too big and exceeded maximum capacity. It created a fire hazard right after Migos took the stage and the concert was cancelled in the middle of their performance. The headliner, Rae Sremmurd never even stepped foot on stage.

In order to avoid a similar situation, there are many new regulations for this year's Springfest. The biggest change? Students will no longer be allowed to bring guests. Also, you now have to register on the USC rec sports portal to gain entrance to the concert.
According to DPS Assistant Chief David Carlisle, campus will be close down at 8p.m. instead of the usual 9p.m. on the night of Springfest to help avoid overcrowding. He also explained that there will be extra security to help make sure Springfest is a safe event.
Playboi Carti and Sheck Wes will perform before the headliner, Glass Animals, take the stage. Springfest 2018 will take place on Saturday April 7th from 5p.m. to 11:30p.m. on McCarthy Quad. Make sure to register here.
