Help The University of Manchester compete at the National Acapella Semi-Finals 2018


Fantastic Beats and Where to Find Them are an Acapella group from The University of Manchester. This year, we are through to the Voice Festival Semi-Finals. These are the UK National Acapella Semi-Finals and getting this far in the competition is an absolute dream of ours. This is the first time in the history of The University of Manchester that an Acapella group has got this far in the National Competition. We are a non-profit student-led group and so we are desperate for help with funding our accommodation costs for the National Competition.

Our Story

Formed in November 2016, Fantastic Beats and Where to Find Them have quickly developed to be one of the top university acapella groups in the UK. We rehearse twice a week all year round and work tirelessly on our musicality, our performance and our originality to be the best we can possibly be. Although our music is of a high standard, we don't take ourselves too seriously. Our fun, light-hearted and focused rehearsal environment means we have become a close group of friends who have lots of fun together whilst creating quality music.

Our hard work, creativity and passion have been rewarded with us progressing to the National Semi-Finals. We are incredibly proud of what we've achieved so far and are so excited to compete against other top university acapella groups from around the UK.

where will the money go?

Our minimum target is to fund our accommodation costs. The weekend-long competition takes place in Birmingham and we have managed to find some very reasonable accommodation. To pay for 3 nights of accommodation for the 15 of us, we are looking to raise £957.50.

If we are lucky enough to raise our full target (£1100), we can cover the costs of our donation rewards and rehearse in a professional dance studio on the eve of the competition. This would make a massive difference to our chances of succeeding in the Semi-Finals and progressing through to the Final.


We really hope you can donate and help us. To show just how much we appreciate your donation, we have created some rewards for you. Be sure to check them out!
