SunsetFest is EC’s way of kicking off Fall Quarter with a free concert to welcome the new freshmen to campus. Think of it as your very first quintessential college experience and another way to make friends while listening to your favorite artist. There are games, food, and giveaways that all lead up to the headlining performer! In Fall 2018, Baauer headlined the show on the UCD Quad and we are so excited to see what is in store for next year. 


Entertainment Council is so excited to bring you Petrichor! What might that be? Well glad you asked, Petrichor is a pleasant smell that frequently accompanies the first rain after a long period of warm, dry weather. Beach Fossils is our very own personalized rainy welcome. So take off your jacket and come groove, Petrichor is here. See you all at 6pm on February 22nd at the Mondavi Center.


Over the past several years, we have gotten to host some of the biggest names in music through our Promoter shows with companies such as Another Planet Entertainment. We have had the privilege to promote and hold sold out concerts in the ARC Pavilion to artists such as Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Chance the Rapper, Alt J, Flume and Khalid. Keep giving us suggestions to who you want to see next at UC Davis and stay tuned on our social media pages for ticket giveaways!


If you thought that the Entertainment Council was just music, think again! We also put on free movie screenings for students every quarter at the classic Varsity Theatre in downtown Davis. For any movie lovers out there, we have brought advanced screenings of some of the most popular movies of the last few years, including A Star is Born, the Justice League, and the Big Sick. Let us know what types of movies you want to see in the future!


Open Mic Nights are held in the famous UC Davis Coffee House (aka the Coho) at least once a quarter for students to show off their talent in front of an engaged audience. Acts can range from student bands and stand up comedy routines to heartfelt poetry readings, and we are always excited to see new unique acts! Anyone can secure a position to participate in advance by emailing, or you can sign up at the event, provided there are still time slots available. Our next Open Mic Night will be on Tuesday, April 16th from 5:30 to 8:30pm, so mark your calendars and come hang out with us!
