Bandsoc is exactly what it says, the society for bands. Whatever your preferred genre we have the widest variety of bands and people as one of the university's largest and most active societies. Whether you're already making music or looking to get started, there will always be someone to jam with. We embrace all genres of music, whether its folk or funk, rock or punk, jazz, blues, metal, latin, whatever. Come and make some music!
We have access to our own fully equipped practice facilities on campus. Our practice room is currently located in the Westwood Music Centre, and is available every day at a fraction of the cost of those in the local area. We run lessons for some musical instruments. We can also help you arrange gigs in campus bars and beyond and can provide assistance and advice regarding recording, promotion, transport and equipment. Just ask the friendly exec!
Our annual Battle of the Bands spectacular showdown happens throughout term 2, with 30 acts fighting it out to be known as the best band in the university. In the past, the event has attracted some of the biggest crowds seen at society-run events, and allows our members to showcase their talents to the univeristy population at large.
