Access to Dillo Day this year will be restricted to Northwestern students, faculty and staff and their personal guests as well as Evanston residents. All attendees must register through the University at dillo.mine.nu.


Updated Guest Policies

Each student can bring up to two guests, and NU staff and Evanston residents can register up to four guests.
Non-student guests under the age of 19 must be accompanied by a chaperone at all times. If the guest is not registered with a student, the chaperone must be at least 25 years old.

Wristband Policies

Wristbands will be distributed prior to Dillo Day and will have serial numbers that will be linked to each attendee. ​ ​ There will be separate wristbands for guests under 19​.​ Students who do not pick up the wristbands before Dillo Day will be charged a $5 convenience fee on the day of the festival. Wristbands will not be replaced if lost, and they are separate from the wristbands distributed by Residential Services.

Entrance to Dillo Day Festivities

Due to construction, there will be one entrance and one exit this year. Guests will enter from Norris University Center's East Lawn and exit near the Sports Pavilion and Aquatics Center.

​In Case of Rain

In case of bad weather, the student body will be notified the morning of Dillo Day via email. If the weather forces us to move to Patten Gym, Wildcards will be mandatory to enter the concert. Undergraduate Northwestern students ONLY. No graduate students, faculty, staff, guests or non-students.
