University of Birmingham


We're ValeFest - Europe's largest completely student-run charity music festival! Our aim is to provide an unforgettable end-of-exams celebration event to our 5000 student attendees, all whilst raising money for fantastic causes.
In 2018, our event sold out and we raised a record £40,000 for charity. Not only did we do this, we also had the pleasure of bringing a headline set from UK Album Chart Top 10 band Fickle Friends, who blew the audience away with their infectious set.
Our event wouldn't be possible without our tireless student volunteers, who organise everything from the acts and stages to the site infrastructure, marketing and everything in between, showing passion for our causes and impressing the industry professionals we worked with (we are only students after all!).
