Splendour Festival – one of the largest outdoor one-day festivals in the UK – is a regular setting for student bands from Confetti to perform in front a live crowd.

This year, we’re introducing….

The Crying Violets

Combining soulful warmth and daydream-esque melodies, The Crying Violets are an indie-pop trio based in Nottingham (above), producing tunes perfect for sunny Sunday afternoons. Katie and Elliot came together in 2019 after years of playing together, further welcoming Dan to complete the band with his swooning bass lines. The band have been referred to as “one of Nottingham’s most promising emerging three-pieces” by The Mic Magazine.

The Black White

The Black White are a Punk/Rock band born and bred in Nottingham. What started as a bedroom project over lockdown has now blossomed into “The Black White”. You’ll hear blistering riff, pounding drums, brutal bass lines and awful, screeching vocals.

Since September

We’re also pleased to announce that friend of Confetti, Jacob Fowler, and his band – Since September – will performing live this year at Splendour! The band have risen to fame following the BBC’s Little Mix The Search .

Do it for Real

It’s not only Confetti bands that get the chance to Do it for Real at Splendour. We have a team of students who join professional crews producing, staging and filming the performances! Take a look….
