ValeFest is Europe’s largest student-run charity festival that’s held every year at the University of Birmingham. Last year’s line-up saw bands such as Fickle Friends, Little Comets and Marsicans take to the main stage. This year, they’ve sought some of the biggest names they could find, including Reading & Leeds Festival main stage performers, The Hunna; Saint Raymond; Bad Sounds and more.

In love with all things ‘indie’ and underground – from psychedelic to alternative to rock. My favourite artists include Black Honey, The Last Shadow Puppets, Tame Impala, The Vaccines and Childish Gambino.
