2014 Freshers’ Week Line-Up
Coming this year to the Forum Hertfordshire are some of the biggest artists from around the world. From playing festivals in the summer to playing your freshers, Hertfordshire Students’ Union has really brought the A-list to Freshers’ entertainments.
On moving in weekend, the Forum Hertfordshire is hosting your ‘Freshers Welcome Party’ (Sat 27th Sep) where all you uni newbies get to mingle and make some new friends.
Following this, Sunday night is getting foamy with the ‘Freshers’ Foam Party’. This is most likely your second night out during freshers so you’ll be meeting even more new faces.
As we hit Monday (29th September), we are welcoming international recording artist, Fuse ODG to the Forum! After playing the MTV Stage at V Festival, receiving three top ten singles and a MOBO Award, Fuse is hitting the stage for Fresher’s! Even by Monday, Freshers’ week is set to be one of the best on record.
Tuesday night is getting down and dirty with the bass as Distort, the resident Drum & Bass and Dubstep night takes the Forum. Even better than this, the one and only Sigma are playing the main stage. Sigma are playing Hertfordshire as part of their freshers tour of universities following the success of their Number 1 single, ‘Nobody to Love’.
Wednesday is getting crazy as the Forum welcomes Becky Hill for Midweek Madness! Some of you would have hit your 5th night by now so you may be feeling the constant partying. Just remember, you don’t want to burn out before the main event, the Freshers’ Ball.
For the rock chicks and dudes, the Forum’s rock night Breakout is taking over Thursday night of Freshers. Since playing Reading and Leeds this year, Deaf Havana are headlining the auditorium for a night of rock, punk and party classics.
After six nights of partying and inductions, it is time for the BIG ONE! Following our annual Freshers’ Fair where you get to meet all of your societies and local companies, we are welcoming the one and only Example and DJ Wire to headline your Freshers’ Ball on Oct 3rd! Showing that Herts really hosts the best Freshers, we have booked a V Festival main stage act! Get your tickets at the ready for the Freshers’ Ball because it is always a sell out!
After all of that, we are still not finished! Saturday brings music legends Pendulum to our UV Party!
Seven days and nights after moving into your new accommodation, we have come to the end of Freshers’ Week but don’t worry! You still have a whole year of fun ahead of you at the Forum Hertfordshire and at uni with your Students’ Union.
Party hard but always stay safe and drink responsibly.
