Access Creative College is partnered with several music and arts festivals staged across the UK. These events offer opportunities for students to perform and gain work experience.
Latitude Festival is an stunning music and arts festival which takes place at Henham Park, near Southwold, Suffolk, in July. 2018 headliners included The Killers, Solange, Alt-J, Belle and Sebastian, The Vaccines and Wolf Alice.
Access Creative College has managed the stage in the Inbetweeners Area for the last eight years. The stage, located in an intimate woodland setting, hosts around thirty college acts across all three days. The stage is managed and engineered by students. Previous performers have included Ed Sheeran, Lets Eat Grandma and Mullally. In 2018, the college pioneered a games workshop marquee where festival goers could design games characters.
Sundown is an exciting dance and pop orientated festival with the hottest acts and DJs around. It is based just outside Norwich and runs right at the end of August. Headliners for 2018 included Chase & Status, Shaun Mendes and Clean Bandit.
The college was proud to host the Platform Stage in partnership with Music Glue. This stage showcased new talent and was managed and engineered by students.
Jimmy’s Festival is a two-day music and food festival held at Jimmy’s Farm near Ipswich in Suffolk in July. The event is unique in combining live music with live food demonstrations in a family atmosphere. Headline acts for 2018 included The Happy Mondays, Paul Young and The Bluetones.
The college was proud to host a new talent stage in partnership with Soapbox Promotions. We had student acts playing throughout both days, while the area was crewed with student sound engineers, stage managers and artist liaison.
