The department took 2 lucky students to the Strawberry Fields Festival in August to reprise the Pop Up Studio.. as it turned out, we ended up being a ‘Drive In Studio’ instead!
We turned the back of a transit into a fully working recording studio and we recorded around 20 artists… it’s turned out brilliantly : download your FREE album of the sessions here
