For Tigerfest weekend, an increased police presence in Towson

Tigerfest, the annual spring concert, typically means hordes of Towson students and live music (this year's headliner is Cleveland rapper Kid Cudi).

Last year, that combination resulted in 42 charges of "civil or criminal offenses during the neighborhood patrols," according to a new press release from the Baltimore County Police Department.

In order to combat such problems, county police will partner with Towson University during this year's Tigerfest, taking place April 27-29.

"Beginning on April 27 at 11 a.m. and continuing throughout the weekend, special enforcement patrols will be visible in the Donnybrook, Knollwood, Towson Manor and Kenilworth Avenue communities to address any negative impact of Tigerfest on residential neighborhoods," states the release.

The release goes on to list the "illegal behavior" the officers will address, including assaults, setting fires, indecent exposure/urinating in public, alcohol violations (including open containers) and more.

Tigerfest will be held at Johnny Unitas Stadium in Towson. Gates open at 3 p.m. The Cataracs, Stacked Like Pancakes, Ducky & the Vintage and DJ White Rabbit will also perform. Tickets are available now, only at the University Union box office. Tickets for students are $15 in advance, $20 the day of, while non-students pay $35 in advance and $40 the day of.
