FREDERICTON, NB: A ground-breaking partnership between UNBSU Campus Events and Fredericton’s premiere music and entertainment venue, The Capital Complex, will see a number of high-caliber concerts come to New Brunswick’s capital city.
UNBSU Campus Events and The Capital Complex will co-present two concerts at the iconic Fredericton Boyce Farmers’ Market in the winter of 2019. These concerts will feature Canadian and East Coast talent.
This is the first time in recent history that the UNB Student Union is partnering with an external organization to co-present large-scale events.
“The UNB Student Union’s 2018-19 executive team has made it a priority to transform the student experience at UNB,” said Kristian D’Amore, UNBSU’s Director of Campus Events. “My job is to create unique and memorable experiences for UNB students all year long, with this partnership being a major part of the puzzle.”
In September 2018, UNBSU Campus Events organized a sold-out Welcome Back: MUSIC FEST in the Student Union Building to kick-off the academic year. 750+ UNB and STU students jammed out to JUNO Award winner Kardinal Offishall and “Dancing Kizomba’s” smash hit artist Alx Veliz.
“We are committed to enhancing the entire experience for UNB students, creating memories aimed at impacting the greatest percentage our student body,” concluded D’Amore.
The Capital Complex has built a reputation for fantastic music and entertainment in the city.
“We are excited about the talent that will be coming in! They are established Canadian musicians that will appeal to a wide range of demographics,” said Zach Atkinson, General Manager of The Capital Complex. “These events are about bringing the entire Fredericton community together; we are excited to deliver them in partnership with the UNBSU Campus Events.”
The concerts will be 19+ and open to the public, with student tickets being half-priced. Both Atkinson and D’Amore promised that the events will be more than just music, re-emphasizing the ambiance and community feel offered by one of Fredericton’s most unique venues (The Fredericton Boyce Farmers’ Market).
Our first of two announcements will be coming Wednesday, December 5th. Stay tuned on social media for details.
