Established in 1954, Major Attractions is a committee of the Duke University Union, a student-led programming body.  Our purpose is to bring major musical and comedic acts to campus.  As students, we strive to showcase a diverse selection of performers and to produce quality, professional shows.  Major Attractions has been responsible for bringing artists of the caliber of The Beatles, Bruce Springsteen, and Simon and Garfunkel.
