Sunday (22nd Sept) will see the fun in with a welcome party. T-shirts and pens are handed out to all those attending, with the aim to get yourselves introduced to as many people as possible by signing their tops.

Zane Lowe, now renowned for his appearances at Lincoln’s fresher’s weeks, returns on the Monday night. Not content with just one big name, he is also bringing DJ Fresh and Messy Mc along too. Certainly not one to be missed by party-goers.

Tuesday sees the Big Quiz hit the Engine Shed, hosted by this year’s Student’s Union Sabbatical Officers. A nice change from the usual nights out; the winners this year can get their hands on games consoles and fridges full of beer.

Shuffle re-launches in style, with the first Wednesday night bringing not one, but TWO guest DJ’s to the decks. Radio One’s Jameela Jamil will be there along-side JLS star Marvin Humes. With two huge names performing, this one is also not to be missed!

After their success over the last year and a half, Thursday night brings a UV paint party to the Engine Shed, where over 200 litres of paint will be fired into the crowd, guaranteeing a messy, but much more fun night out for all.

Welsh rockers Kids in Glass Houses return to Lincoln on Friday night, as they tour the UK in support of their new album. Support comes from Cartel and Propellers.

Propaganda also returns to Saturday nights in style, with Radio One DJ Huw Stephens headlining this year’s launch night. Huw is renowned for his mix of indie and chart hits, and he will be sure to get you into the partying mood.

Other events in the week include a comedy night at The Platform on Thursday, a hardcore and punk night, also at The Platform on Friday, and a vintage fair taking place in the Engine Shed during the day on Saturday.

Tickets can either be brought individually for each event, or in a bundle. A platinum wristband (£60) will get you in to every event during the week, or a gold wristband (£50) will allow you entry in to everything except The Big Quiz and the comedy night.
