Immersed Festival 2024

The University of South Wales presents Immersed!24: a multi-media festival of music, film, art, fashion, and performance curated by creative industries students and supported by Creative Wales to raise awareness for Music Declares Emergency, the industry’s climate change charity.

The sixth Immersed! Festival returns to Tramshed Cardiff on Saturday 2 March with an electrifying line-up of music, film, art, fashion, and theatre showcasing a diverse programme and one-of-a-kind festival experiences.

For our main stage headliner, we are excited to announce MOBO award-winning London duo, Bob Vylan – an exceptional live act with a unique sound that has found them embraced by rock, rap, punk, dance and alternative fans alike. Bob Vylan will be supported by Bristol-based producer Grove, new wave synth-based pop maestros Voya, rising local star Bianca, alt rock trio Chroma and metalcore favourites Continents. More than 50 artists and bands, including Cardiff’s Sound Progression will complete the line-up for Immersed!24 at the 1,000 capacity venue.

BBC Presenter and USW Honorary Dr. Huw Stephens said insert:

“Immersed has become a welcome addition to the live music scene in Wales. Its focus on talent, creativity and production is invaluable, and its work with students in nurturing their community is highly successful. The event itself is professionally delivered, with a special experience for those involved.”

We are partnering with Music Declares Emergency to highlight the effects of climate change and help promote a greener, more sustainable future, with a programme of fringe events running from 29 February – 7 March embracing the festival Future Utopias theme. The events will include screenings of short films and Immersed! TV broadcast, exhibitions, art instillations, immersive theatre, a city centre mural, sustainable fashion projects and a live music showcase.

The University and the charity will also launch Wales’s first Future Generations Climate Convention – a series of panels, keynote talks and showcase projects dedicated to empowering young people in climate discussions – in partnership with touring and sustainability consultancy, Soliphilia.
