After playing Freshers’ Week for two years running and bringing Radio 1’s Student Tour to the city, Zane Lowe makes a welcome return to Lincoln on Thursday, September 22nd. When he was last in the city, Lowe praised the venue when speaking to The Linc: “I’m not just saying this, but Engine Shed is always strong, I mean that’s really hard to beat.”

Before Lowe takes to the stage, local band Dancing Lotus will be headlining an evening of live music at the Tower Bar.

On Friday, Nick Grimshaw launches a new club night called Stripped, which promises a mix of music including “indie through hip-hop, DnB, dubstep, funk and a little pop thrown in for good measure”.

Other events in the week include a series of film screenings, Engine Shed favourites Superfunk Rollerdisco, Headphone Disco and popular club night Fever Pitch.

You can find out more details and buy tickets for events at the Lincoln Freshers’ website.
