Freshers’ Week 2018 – Floor 5 – Day 8 – Flashback
September 8 - 10:00 pm - 3:00 am
Flashback revives the best party classics from the last three decades from times when people thought Kylie and Jason would get married, Oasis would ‘Live Forever’ and that you were ‘Goin’ Crazy’ for suggesting a duet between Dizzee Rascal and Robbie Williams. Even if you don’t remember being there, you’ll be amazed just how much of the music you’ll know.
The 1980s saw the launch of the first space shuttle and the fall of the Berlin Wall, but it’s arguably the music which the 1980s are best remembered for. The 80s were the decade of pop, electronica, stadium rock, New Romantics, acid house and so much more.
The 90s may have been the decade of manufactured pop heaven, but it was also the decade of Cool Britannia – a time when Brit-pop re-crowned Britain as the music capital of the world, illegal party organisers made club culture corporate and pirate radio DJs took over Radio 1.
Love it or hate it, the music of the Noughties was inescapable, coming from adverts, video games and that new-fangled gadget, the iPod. Arguably, the biggest phenomenon wasn’t individual artists or thrilling new genres, but that music went digital on a global scale. Music downloads (both legal and … less legal) and the free music zones of YouTube and Spotify changed the way we listen to music forever.
So join us at Flashback, a rose-tinted time machine of pop nostalgia where the music of yesterday soundtracks the party of today!
