Immersed Festival

Immerse yourself

Immersed is a multi-media Festival curated by Creative Industries students at USW, working in partnership with the local community in aid of climate change charity, Music Declares Emergency.


Collaborating with the industry, students apply the knowledge and skills acquired in their specific courses to engage in all facets of music programming, performance, promotion, and the production of a live festival. This is a great opportunity to develop a wide range of personal qualities and transferable skills such as commercial awareness, communication, digital literacy, project management, leadership, innovation, and enterprise are nurtured.


Immersed 2024

Immersed has evolved from a programme that initially featured student bands, to featuring multi-platinum and Ivor Novello award-winning headliners such as Richard Ashcroft, Peter Doherty, Tom Greenham, Bang Bang Romeo and Lady Leshurr, selling out 1,000-capacity city centre venue, Tramshed.

The sixth Immersed Festival returns to Tramshed Cardiff on Saturday 2nd March with an electrifying line-up of music, film, art, fashion, and theatre. Headlining the festival is MOBO award-winning act, BOB VYLAN, promising an unforgettable performance amid a gathering of outstanding talent and one-of-a-kind festival experiences.
