aparto: a part of a special S&C experience
Festivals take the energy out of you, big time. After a day of dancing, drinking and doing your thing to countless sets from your favourite artists, you’ll certainly need a place to recharge the batteries and bed down for the night.
That’s why for this year’s event, we partnered with student accommodation experts APARTO to provide several lucky S&C festival goers with a glorious night’s sleep in one of their lovely rooms at their Cambridge site, The Cam Foundry.
We’re a festival which focuses on delivering an amazing experience - making sure you guys have simply the best day of your lives each and every June, enjoying everything from the music to the food to the toilets (maybe not too much on that last on…)
So aparto were a perfect fit, as that’s exactly what they do for students - ensuring they have not just an awesome place to stay, but enjoy an incredible experience too, with a lively social programme and top quality facilities all part of the package.
Here’s what went down when our lucky prize winners stayed the night at aparto, and the lowdown on what they thought about their S&C student digs with a difference…
Gabriella Perez - Competition Winner:
“I travelled down from Manchester this year to attend S&C after winning the competition to stay with aparto. It was such a great experience and the rooms were an absolute godsend after a long journey! The beds were comfy and really well kept. I loved the vibe too, it felt like being a student again!”
Chris Jammer - S&C Festival Team & ‘Shipwrecked’ 2019 Winner:
“Staying with Aparto was exactly what I needed. I had been staying in an Airbnb with the rest of the team all week, so it was so nice to get some peace and quiet and a night to myself. There was a really good community feel about the place for when you felt like socialising, but when I wanted to get my head down for some much-needed rest the rooms were really private too - with no noise coming in from communal areas. Parking was easy, and with The Cam Foundry being located so centrally it was a simple drive to and from the festival site.”
Meara Kallista Morse - Festival Photographer:
“I was the main photographer for both Strawberries & Creem and The Cambridge Club festival the following day this year. Staying with aparto was perfect, as the location meant I could easily get the shuttle bus from the centre of Cambridge to the venue, and was also able to have some peace and quiet while I was editing the photos in the evenings. The set-up was great with plenty of desk space. Everyone on campus seemed really friendly and helpful too.”
Tunde Ogunsina - S&C Festival Team:
“I stayed in one of the aparto rooms in Cambridge for one night whilst running S&C Festival, and it was ideal. As soon as I stepped into the room, I felt at home - it was warming, spacious and very comfortable. I had everything I needed provided for me: bedding, towels and even a can of coke to get the energy levels back up from such an exhausting day. My spot overlooked the courtyard which was nice and peaceful, the perfect antidote to the chaos on the festival site ha! Would definitely recommend.”
So there you have it - the comments from our aparto guests for S&C 2019, and plenty of praise for what seems to have been the perfect post-festival pad for the night!
Big thanks to the team at aparto for accommodating us and partnering with the festival this year. We’ll be back with more awesome competitions and prizes from our partner brands for 2020’s event - our seventh instalment in the S&C story, coming soon!
In the meantime, have a sick summer everyone - and stay tuned for news and tickets dropping soon after…
