De Montfort Students Union have finally announced that this year’s Fresh Fest will begin on Friday the 25th of September.

Wristbands for the best fortnight of your life will go on sale at 9am on Thursday the 13th of August – where the line-up will also be announced that morning.

With over 30+ events confirmed over two weeks you will be crazy to miss out!

Last year saw a range of performers including chart toppers Sigma – who sold out a packed 02 Academy during freshers week – Sigma claimed the official UK number one in September that year with their single Changing.

Early bird wristbands are priced at the discounted price of £44.99 with a VIP Wristband on sale at £69.99 – A VIP band also gives you entry to all of the events plus free entry to the Students Union every Wednesday and Saturday for the whole of term 1.

Although the price of VIP wristbands may seem a big outlay at this present time – it is sure to save you money in the long run if you are planning to join one of the hundreds of societies here at DMU, as many students will testify that during the weekly Wednesday gatherings of societies, you will by the end of the night end up in the Students Union (even if it wasn’t planned).

Remember Fresh Fest wristbands are the only thing that will guarantee you entry to every event over the two weeks and includes your choice of bonkers bar crawl T-shirt.

Fresh Fest wristbands are open for all students to purchase regardless of what year you are in, 3rd years and postgrads can still party too!

So set your alarms to avoid disappointment as last year early bird tickets sold out within 20 seconds!
