spring splash 

Spring Splash at the University of California, Riverside is an outdoor music festival held annually in the center of campus around the UCR Bell Tower. This event is put on by the Associated Students Program Board (ASPB) and is one of the biggest campus events of the year! Our goal for Spring Splash has always been to provide a quality music festival that brings all of the UCR students together and cultivates the diversity that permeates every part of campus life.

ASPB would like to thank the campus organizations and departments who have supported us. Check out our ASPB website (aspb.ucr.edu) to get updates on all our other events. See you at Spring Splash 2017!



The Associated Students Program Board (ASPB) is a student run programming entity on the UC Riverside campus. Established in 1986, ASPB has programmed on campus for over 30 years. ASPB is 100% student run and funded by quarterly fees paid by undergraduate students. ASPB is comprised of fifteen full-time undergraduate students that work primarily, though not exclusively, in the following six divisions: Concerts, Special Events, Films & Lectures, Contemporary Culture, Marketing, and Leadership. The first four programming divisions plan events both large and small—all programs are voted on and approved by quorum of the board. The other two divisions provide support essential to the success of the events and the team respectively. All twelve directors, as well as the Vice-Chairperson, hold votes in program requests proposed by the board.

The ASPB family also hires Volunteers in the spring and fall of each school year– each Volunteer belonging to either the Concerts, Special Events, Films & Lectures, Contemporary Culture, Marketing, Leadership divisions or the Events Team who are not assigned to a particular division but has free range on all events. The Volunteer Members contribute to the development and implementation of all events while supporting their respective divisions.
