LBSU are proud to be hosting a one-day festival at the City Hive, courtesy of a student Bright Idea by Hannah Little! Hannah is a Music Production student who wanted to bring local student acts to the big stage and wants to share with you a little about how it all came about.
What is Beckett Fest?
"Beckett Fest is a Student Run music Festival happening on the 12th of April. All the acts who are performing are students and we have some really fantastic ones including a DJ who has been played on Radio 1 before and bands with already many albums under their belts. We also have an acoustic stage where you can relax, have a drink and something to eat and sit down and enjoy melodic guitar playing and singing. There will be other societies and events there to keep you entertained and the night will finish big with a few sets from Leeds Becketts very own Cue DJ Society!"
How did the idea come about?
"The idea came about when me and some of my fellow Music Production students were sat in The Hive after a lesson and we were reflecting on what our teacher had said about there not being many music related things happening around campus for students to get involved in, considering there are so many music students. So we said how great it would be for Leeds Beckett to have its own music festival, that is easy to get involved in and to give our students some experience. Me, being the organised one in our class, I made sure to make it happen."
