Keeping hydrated is a major part of attending any festival! Started at FreakNight 2013, USC has made the commitment to provide free water stations at all USC festivals!

Staying hydrated is key to busting a move all night long! You will be able to purchase a reusable, customized water bottle from any USC merchandise booth inside the festival. These are allowed at all future festivals and may be refilled for free at the water stations for the lifetime of the bottle. Buy it once and never pay for water at another USC festival again! Additionally, plastic water bottles purchased inside WaMu Theater can be refilled for free at the water stations. Remember, the reusable bottles not only save your body, but save our environment by reducing the number of plastic bottles used at any given festival!

All water stations will be easily identifiable on festival maps, with smiling volunteers standing by to help keep you hydrated! A hydrated freak is a happy freak!


Food and beverage stands will be located throughout the event with many different options to choose from. There will also be roaming vendors with water, snacks, and other beverages available.


Beer, Wine, & Spirits will be served at the bars located throughout the event for those who are 21 years of age or older. Acceptable forms of identification are needed to access these areas.


There will be ATM(s) located around the venue. ATM locations will be marked on the adventure map.


The USC Merch Booth(s) can be found on the adventure map and will have a variety of t-shirts, jackets, backpacks, sweatshirts and more.


During the event, Lost and Found will be located at the information booth inside the event. Once FreakNight has ended, any Lost & Found inquiries should be directed to [email protected]
