Music Theory Meets Rock Circus as Academics Gather at University

    Press/Media: Public Engagement Activities

    Description

    It’s one of the newest and most futuristic campus facilities in Yorkshire, but the £28m Oastler Building, opened last year at Huddersfield University by the Duke of York, is hardly Wembley Arena. So the three-day music festival which opens there on Monday will be a low-key affair, as these things go.


    However, with a programme that encompasses hip hop, heavy metal, punk and other genres, it will bear little resemblance to an academic conference, either.
