Confetti Live – Extras
About the work
Throughout May and June our college-level students hosted a series of Confetti Live live stream from our music & events hub Metronome. Combining all the skills they have learned throughout the year and the industry-standard tech at their disposal on the course, they invited Confetti bands and Nottingham-based artists for exclusive online performances available publicly through the Confetti Youtube channel.
Opening up the series on Wednesday 19 May was indie rock band Extras, who delivered a 45-minute long set full of originals, new tracks and covers.
Extras is a Burton based band formed by Confetti students. Their new single ‘Previous Scene’ was released Spring 2021 and was featured on Absolute Radio’s Fresh New Tracks.

More about the Confetti Live live stream series
College students from all of our music courses finished the academic year with a bang, after being given the chance to gain hands-on experience in the industry!
Leading the charge were our Level 3 Live and Technical Events students, who spent four weeks meticulously planning every detail; this included production management, technical set-up, lighting, sound and the live stream. On the day, the students, along with help from our Live and Technical Events tutors, made sure that all aspects of the technical production went smoothly.
The event was an overwhelming success, and all students involved should feel very proud for putting on a live event and broadcasting out to hundreds of viewers.
