What is Spring Fling?
Spring Fling is Yale's largest student-run event, a day-long music festival that takes place on Old Campus every Spring. Every year, the Spring Fling committee spends months planning, choosing the lineup, and organizing the festival. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Spring Fling 2022 will be the first Spring Fling in three years, and the first Spring Fling for the majority of the student body, so you better believe it'll be a good one.
