Selected universities with be allocated an ambassador that we feel represents Alliance and our core values. These Ambassadors are tasked to increase our brand recognition on their campus & to build a team to manage throughout the UK festival season. Alliance currently has ambassadors at:
The University of Nottingham
The University of St Andrews
This is also a fantastic development opportunity for our chosen ambassadors who are given responsibility and chance to develop their management and leadership skills they may not have had access to otherwise. These are key skills they can take beyond graduating to future employers with improved confidence in their abilities.
Alliance launched UNKNOWN in May 2022 for a 5 night series with the aim to increase music diversity in the student town of Loughborough. Throughout the series, UNKNOWN hosted 6 DJs, 1000 students & welcomed music from genres including Hip-Hop, RnB, Bashment, Trap & Afrobeats. Accommodating and promoting diversity is key to our values and it was a privilege to exhibit this on these club nights.
