Fore to the Floor has the mission of “prepping your eardrums and whetting your appetite for St Andrews’ own mini music festival,” Under Canvas. Founded in 2009 and rebranded in recent years to focus on music and sustainability, Under Canvas has raised over £20,000 in support of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. Although the festival itself is not until April, the committee hopes to fill the school year with awareness-raising events like this one.

“Let [them] propel you into the weekend with jamming house and techno,” from 9pm to 1am at 1 Golf Place on September 11th. Check out the Facebook page here.
