Fall Fest Concert Series PosterFest is one of the Student Associations oldest traditional events. In past years Fest has taken different forms. From long forgotten “Winter”, “Summer” or “Folk” Fests to the format of the last 20 years of a single Spring & Fall fest, SA has been bringing UB Students the top name musical artists of the day.

Over the past few years SA has seen production costs skyrocket, which has hindered our ability to bring diverse and frequent musical performance.

After much thought and deliberation SA has decided to change the shape of Fall Fest to provide better opportunities to UB Undergraduates.

SA will be dividing Fall Fest into 3 separate concerts held on September 21st, October 6th and November 10th. SA will be able to more than triple the amount of top tier talent we can provide to our students, bringing a wider variety of musical genres, as well as introducing other innovative programming throughout the academic year.

This semester SA will host:

September 21st:
  Vince Staples
  Taylor Bennett
  Blaise Moore
October 6th:
  American Authors
  Matt and Kim
November 10th:
  Queen Naija

Ticket reservations will be available at starting:

Thurs 9/6 @ 10am for the 9/21 show (Vince Staples, Taylor Bennett, Blaise Moore)

Tues 9/18 @ 10am for the 10/6 show (American Authors, Matt and Kim)

Tues 10/16 @ 10am for the 11/10 show (Ashanti, Tinashe, Queen Naija)

  • Every show will be held inside the Center For the Arts Mainstage.
  • Doors will open at 7:30pm, and the shows will begin by 8:00pm.
  • Any Empty Seats will be reassigned 20 minutes after the show begins.
