REMINDER: Madness tickets will be distributed October 5

madness-ksr2

UK sent out a press release this afternoon to remind everyone of the Big Blue Madness ticket distribution. Tickets will be available Saturday, October 5 at 7:00 a.m. at the Memorial Coliseum ticket office and on Ticketmaster.com. Tickets are free again this year and there will be a limit of four tickets per person at Memorial Coliseum. Online orders will have a minimal service fee attached, and there will be a limit of four tickets per household. Online ticket ordering information will be available at a later date.

For those of you interested in camping out, you can begin camping out on October 2, no earlier than 5:00 a.m.  UK asks that all campers set up their forts in an orderly fashion with respect for the neighboring campers. If you act up, you’ll be removed from the line.

Other things to know:

— The use of permanent, wooden-type structures; portable generators; and propane tanks or other open flames used in cooking is prohibited due to safety concerns.

— Alcoholic beverages or tobacco products are not permitted.

— Selling sports tickets in excess of face value is illegal in Kentucky.

— A maximum of four  control cards per tent will be issued to those camped out on Friday, October 4, beginning at 2:00 p.m. Fans will receive a maximum of four tickets per control card on Saturday morning. Fans are encouraged to start lining up for Saturday morning’s ticket distribution between 5:00 and 6:00  a.m. on Saturday, October 5.  All fans must be present to obtain their control cards and only one control card per person will be accepted at distribution.

Also, if you have trouble assembling your tent, and there is video evidence of your struggle, it will end up on KSR.

Go Cats.

    I work till 6, usually get there around 7pm on Friday night and I always get a card or voucher or whatever it is. Usually not a great seat but big blue madness is more about the experience than anything. Look forward to another party with the big blue nation.

    Are there any restrictions to how big the tents are? And if there is someone in your tent can you leave and come back? and where can you park your car? First time going!
