Washington University’s biggest and highest funded student programming body is in the midst of a major facelift.
Excited for Wolfgang Gartner’s set at W.I.L.D.? Yeah, neither am I. While I appreciate Team 31’s efforts to appeal to as many students as possible, they have ironically managed to achieve the opposite with this semester’s headliner.
Second Stage, the outdoor concert on the Village Green that preceded the W.I.L.D. concert in Brookings Quadrangle for the first time last semester, will not be a part of this fall W.I.L.D.
Wolfgang Gartner will headline this fall’s Walk in Lay Down Concert on Oct. 12, Team 31 confirmed Wednesday night.

With last year’s fall W.I.L.D. yielding the highest number of injuries in recent history, alcohol consumption was bound to be a concern this year. But now, some students are worried that the date of W.I.L.D., Friday, Sept. 16, could contribute to even more injuries.
W.I.L.D. will take place on Friday, September 16, Team 31 announced via Facebook and Twitter. W.I.L.D., or Walk In Lay Down, a concert that takes place once a semester, is earlier this year than in the past. The fall concert has been in October every year since 2007, when it was scheduled for September 29. […]
