Wire – Summer 2017

Monday August 21, 2017

It’s summer time which, as well as exam results (gulp), means one thing… no, not rain, FESTIVALS!

Last month, 124 of our students undertook 1435 hours of work experience at Nottingham’s sold out Splendour Festival – and we’ve covered all the action in this edition. From interviews with the bands to sneaky peeks behind the scenes, we’ve given you an access all areas pass to the day’s action. Including exclusive interviews with Splendour headliners Kaiser Chiefs and former Confetti student Josh Wheatley after his set on the Confetti stage.

Also in this issue, our student reporter talks to Irish band Kodaline about their latest album, and our HE Games Student of the Year Akshay, reviews the latest, most exciting gaming releases.

Our Confetti roots are planted firmly in music and our fantastic partners at PMT have summed up the top 5 amps you can buy as you prepare to move into student accommodation, so that you can rock out in your room without getting complaints from your neighbours. They have also drummed up another exclusive offer for our students.

A new term means new students and new tutors. Turn to page 10 to meet Chris and Nicky, two of our new Film and TV tutors.
