To provide students with valuable experience of working in the live sound industry by putting on gigs in the local community.
The Live Sound Society aims to give students from all years the opportunity to crew on gigs and live productions.
Our events range from small pub gigs to festivals and allow members to gain experience in the field of live sound engineering with the support of other students.
A variety of roles will be available to members, including front of house engineering, monitor engineering, stage managment and stage hand. Getting experience in all these roles will help give a great understanding of how sound works in a live environment.
Over the past few years, the society has grown a lot. We have gigs/events that take place during the academic year and during the summer where we go to festivals!
