The festival, run by Goldsmiths Music Society, will run on November 17th-18th at the SU.
The student-run SouthBound Festival will return to Goldsmiths next week. Andrew Rolland, the BMus Music graduate heading up the team, said, ‘We started it last year, it was all about giving students the opportunity to practice and perform.’
And this time it’s set to be a much bigger affair. It’s now ticketed, open to the public, and acts now include notable alumni alongside current students. ‘This year we wanted to show the progression from students to alumni, and encourage people to put themselves forward a bit more, and see where and how you can develop as a musician.
‘There’s a much better mix of genres of music, but also people who have just started playing live who are still students at uni, and much more seasoned players who are alumni now and still want to keep going with what they’re doing.’
Such alumni acts include: D.A.N, Bubbles, Tony Njoku, and Rosie Everett, with headliners Temptress and Noctürn. DJs to look out for include Natalie Sandi, Jamie Rosso, Iagö, and Blasé Vanguard. No Blur, alas.
SouthBound will be held at the SU across two stages. Upstairs
