After sluggish ticket sales, the College Union Board (CUB) and the Student Finance Board have decided to make tickets to Friday’s New Jersey Music Festival free for College students.
The tickets, which were $15, will be limited to two per ID and are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
They will be available in the Brower Student Center atrium until Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. unless tickets are exhausted.
The show, which features rappers Common, Yung Joc and Burndown Allstars, is scheduled to be held at the Sports Center at Richard Stockton College at 8 p.m.
“This is such a new and exciting collaborative event that we want to give all interested the opportunity to attend,” Tara Conte, CUB director and senior English major, said.
CUB will also be offering free busing to and from the concert.However, there is a $15 refundable deposit to save a seat on the bus.
Students who are taking the bus will not receive their tickets until they get on the bus and will receive the $15 deposit in cash en route.
Any student requesting tickets after noon on Thursday will not be eligible for bus transportation.
Students who have already purchased tickets are eligible for a refund.
Those who were planning to drive themselves should go to the ticket table or the CUB office for more information on the refund.
The buses will leave from the student center at 5:30 p.m. on Friday.
Five schools are sponsoring this show: the College, Georgian Court University, Monmouth University, Rowan University and Richard Stockton.
“Five schools plus three acts equals one awesome time,” Conte said.
