Description:
The Vale Festival, commonly abbreviated to Valefest, is a music festival that takes place on the campus of University of Birmingham, in Birmingham, England. Uniquely, it is planned, organised and largely staffed by volunteer students - it is believed to be the largest solely student-organised event in the UK. All proceeds go to charitable causes.

The 2008 event took place on 10 June. Organisers expected a sell-out event, with capacity crowds of up to 5,500 students. The theme for this year's festival is 'Water for Life' - more specifically, sustainable access to clean water and sanitation in the developing world. All proceeds from ticket sales, which was over £30,000 in 2007, will be donated to three charities: Play Pumps, WaterAid and PumpAid. The festival will boast five stages, over forty bands, performances, society events, an outdoor cinema, workshops, an official after-party and a wide variety of other features. The main-stage headliner will be Misty's Big Adventure.
