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 the entire year planning, choosing the lineup, and organizing the festival, so you better believe Spring Fling 2023 will be a good one.
