It’s not just the music…

Summer Shutdown is so much more than a clubnight. As well as our line up of incredible artists and DJs, we’ve got lots more in store to help you end your year on a high, and start your summer as you mean to go on…


rideSky Dancer

We’re bringing the fairground to campus! Your Summer Shutdown ticket includes unlimited free rides on the Sky Dancer. Hop aboard to take a break from dancing and rise above the action as you look out across the Shutdown site, or go for the more adrenaline-heavy option of spinning your seat a full 360 degrees as you soar over the heads of your friends.


Silent Disco

Were you at Summer Fest last year? The igloo tent is back, bringing with it the ever-popular Silent Disco… If you haven’t been to a silent disco before, you’re in for a treat. Grab some headphones and tune in to any of the three channels, playing a mix of genres. Not a fan of Taylor Swift? Switch channels with a flick of a switch to tune into something new – or tune out for a second to appreciate the sound of the crowd belting out a unique combination of Beyonce, the Bee Gees and Kendrick… Have your say on which music you’d like to hear by voting here.

Headphone hire is FREE, though you will need to pay a small deposit which will be refunded once you hand them back in. Remember to bring some cash!


Mark the end of the year with some snaps with your friends! It’s free to use, and you’ll get a free print too. All other photos will be uploaded to Facebook, so grab some props and make it insta-worthy 😉


Shutdown Lounge

Take a breather from the dancefloor to grab some food at the food court and head to the Shutdown Lounge on the MDX House terrace. There will be plenty of space to chill out and chat, while listening to some great student performers and grabbing some photos amidst the summer party decor.


Face painting

We’re upping the festival vibes with face painting, available in MDX House. Get glittered up – with all proceeds going to charity.
