More on Aloha Bash

Aloha Bash planning typically starts 8 months to a year prior to the concert night. Part of CCBAC’s planning process involves surveying constituents and trying to find out what types of genres and artists they may want to see at Aloha Bash. From there, CCBAC works with advisors to contact promoters and see what types of new and exciting ideas they may be able to incorporate when looking at artists, and still maintaining the traditions that UH Mānoa has come to love with Aloha Bash. Once CCBAC has artists confirmed, the council of 6 event planners, and one executive assistant, begins and executes every step of putting on the event. This creates and allows for new levels of growth within the council as event planners. Marketing and promotion, volunteer recruitment and management, concessions and food menu, logistics, and much more all become a part of this event planning many months prior to the day of the event, and require detailed advanced planning. CCBAC aims to provide fun and innovative events for fellow constituents at UH Mānoa and the UHM community, and is eager to continue the tradition of Aloha Bash for the 13th year of its return.
