Mark your calendars because UK just announced the dates for the Big Blue Madness Campout. This year’s campout will take place September 27-29. Tickets to Madness will be distributed on Friday, September 29 at 10 p.m. Madness itself will take place Friday, October 13 at 7 p.m. at Rupp Arena.
As always, tickets to Madness are free and can be obtained on Ticketmaster starting at 10 p.m. on the 29th. For those fans that camp out, a limited number of control cards will be issued on the 29th at 2 p.m. All fans must be present to obtain their control cards and only one control card per person will be accepted at distribution. All people with control cards must be in line by 10 p.m.
UK is asking fans not to line up before 5 a.m. on Wednesday, September 27. Because of the never-ending construction on campus, space will limited this year and fans are encouraged to use Ticketmaster to obtain their tickets. In fact, UK says that once the grounds around Memorial reach capacity, they’ll stop distributing control cards. More details will be released closer to the event.
For now, dust that tent off. Madness campout is coming.
