Music Venues Database & Tour Booking Contacts - Indie on the Move. The Truth about NACA: Gigging on the College Circuit. The National Association of Campus Activities, established in 1960, is a non-profit organization that puts on regional conferences where music acts, comedians, lecturers and other entertainers showcase in front of campus activities programmers from around the country.
There are 1200 member colleges and 600 associate members (talent or agent) which makes NACA the largest organization of its kind. Acts like Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen, Suzanne Vega, and Toad the Wet Sprocket have all used NACA and the college market as a stepping-stone to success. Comedians also thrive on this market, which has helped the careers of Carrot Top, Jay Leno, Sinbad, and many others. The organization covers the entire U.S. and is divided into 11 regions (Southeast, New England, East Coast, Upper Midwest, etc.) Each region puts on one or two conferences per year, most of them during the fall semester and lasting two to four days. The venues and audiences for these shows can vary greatly. CO-OP. Why bother? Western Arts Alliance. Join Now!
