ValeFest is a charity music festival completely run by students at the University of Birmingham on the Vale Village, providing an entire day and night of music and art across several stages. As well as new emerging artists and DJs, we have bands that you might have seen on stages at Glastonbury, Hit The Deck and Reading and Leeds. Our 2016 lineup will be released soon!
And theres more – specifically selected food stands, a comedy tent, society performances and workshops, a massive after party, as well as many other neat tricks and treats on the day.
As a non-for-profit student organisation, 100% of all the proceeds is donated to our chosen charities, which change each year. In 2016, these charities are the Against Malaria Foundation and Birmingham Children’s Hospital.
