    Best band I have seen at my uni was Turin Brakes. We don't get many at all. In fact that was the only band I went to see. Others just happened to be playing at the union when I was there like Boy Kill Boy at our poor excuse for a freshers ball and Fedde Le Grand at something random..

    Bloc Party came to Exeter, but I didn't see them, because that kind of music doesn't interest me. They're probably the best/most famous in terms of mainstream.

    In the past we've also had Javine and The Foundations :rolleyes:

    The best one I personally saw, though, was Brendan Benson, who was just amazing.

    Not personally seen them, but we've had the Magic Numbers, Kaiser Chiefs, Young Knives, Klaxons, and several others. Westwood DJ'd one of the fresher's nights at a local club and was, apparently, rubbish.
