A group of students from Southampton Solent University’s music and sound courses had the opportunity to get hands-on experience working at Craig David and Big Narstie’s arena show at BIC, Bournemouth.
BA (Hons) Music Management student Jo Howarth says, ‘I learnt a lot of things that I’ve always questioned but never understood before, like why the typical arena tour is routed like it is to make it more convenient to do shows where the stage size and height needs to be different. I also had a lot of questions answered abut the festival circuit and how Steve is able to make a whole stage run to schedule. We even got tickets to the show in the best seats in the arena!’
Seweryn Zubka (BA Hons Popular Music Production) says,
‘It was amazing to see how everyone in the crew knew what they were doing..’
‘All in all it was a very useful day!’
