Since its inaugural year in 2016, Boundary has marked the end of Brighton summer in exorbitant style. With big names like Chase & Status, My Nu Leng, and Craig David all headlining the event in the past, Boundary has become a seminal date in the Brighton calendar - even if it does mean waving goodbye to the sunny season.
In fact, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better start-of-term party anywhere in the UK. Nestled on September 28th, the Saturday after Sussex freshers week, we're pretty sure that Boundary is the ultimate freshers festival - and here's why.
Boundary has got that little bit of edge that an SU Tea and Crumpets Welcome Party™ sorely lacks. Student Union events can be notoriously hit and miss; Brighton and Sussex are two of the best in the country for sure, but having a professional club brand like The Arch behind Boundary means that the production, vibe, and acts are always on point.
Speaking of which - the lineups at Boundary are always baller. Every year we've seen a diverse yet familiar line up featuring the best in bass, DnB, grime, and house music.
In case you were unaware, Boundary takes place in Stanmer Park - the same Stanmer Park that the University of Sussex campus sits right next to. The festival site is about a five-minute walk from the University of Sussex Students Union building. When the festival site closes at 10pm it's only a short walk back to halls, or you can jump straight on the bus into town to keep the party going.
