Veishea announces 2008 entertainment lineup, ticket policy

AMES, Iowa -- Student organizers of Iowa State University's annual Veishea celebration, set for April 7-13, have announced entertainment for this year's event and a new admittance policy for major concerts.

Musical headliners will perform on the former marching band practice field near Howe Hall and the College of Design on the west side of campus. Admission to that outdoor venue will be limited to ISU students, alumni, faculty and staff who purchase wristbands.

A total of 7,000 wristbands will be sold first come, first served. Wristbands are $5 each and will go on sale Sunday, April 6. Students, faculty and staff may each purchase one wristband with a valid ISU ID card. If any wristbands remain by Thursday, April 10, ISU students will have the option to purchase one additional wristband for a friend. Wristband prices will increase to $7 day(s) of show.

Wristbands will be valid for concerts on both Friday and Saturday nights of Veishea weekend, April 11-12.

ISU students can get more details about wristband sales, locations and times at www.veishea.iastate.edu.

Alumni may purchase wristbands through the ISU Alumni Association.

No one will be admitted to the band field without a wristband.
