Tickets must be picked up tomorrow or vouchers are considered worthless
Vouchers for tomorrow's CatFest, featuring Eve 6, are going fast.
Approximately 1,600 vouchers out of 2,000 available have already been handed out on the University of Arizona Mall, said Pamela Epstein, special events director for the Associated Students of the University of Arizona.
Today is the last day vouchers will be handed out, between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Each student is allowed two while they last.
"This is a big event," Epstein said. "The goal is just to put on a good show and have fun."
"We're estimating a couple thousand people for the concert outside, fashion show and modeling (competition)," said ASUA Treasurer Cale Miller.
Students with vouchers must redeem them for tickets tomorrow between noon and 5 p.m. or else the vouchers are not valid. Tickets can be redeemed on the west side of Old Main with a CatCard.
Neither tickets nor vouchers are available online.
While everyone with a voucher will receive tickets, those who show up early will get better seats in Centennial Hall, Epstein said.
"The sooner you get (to Old Main tomorrow) the better seats you get," Epstein said.
But students who do not get tickets will also be in luck.
Though the Eve 6 concert requires students to get vouchers and exchange them for tickets, a free concert featuring local bands Warsaw and Sunday Afternoon will be held on the west side of Old Main from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. tomorrow. The Eve 6 concert will follow in Centennial Hall at 7:30 p.m., Epstein said.
Approximately 400 free tickets for Eve 6 will be available the night of the show for students who were unable to pick up vouchers.
However, Epstein encourages students interested in the Eve 6 concert to get vouchers and trade them in for tickets, instead of showing up and hoping to get in.
"People with vouchers get priority, and priority seating," Epstein said.
