Christie Oliver and the Monocaster faced 10,000 spectators at Rafete de la Musique in Aix-en-Provence, southern France.

Allan Dumbreck, Senior Lecturer of Music, Arts, Performance and International Development at UWS, said: A perfect example of this.

"It can be difficult to play in front of an audience of this size, but the students were confident on the stage and were very well received."

The performance concludes the largest set of EuroGig exchanges, with 11 acts from 5 countries being performed internationally.

Singer-songwriter and commercial music student Christie Oliver said:

"It was a great experience, and it's honestly unrealistic to know what happened. I am grateful to everyone who has worked to make that happen. ”

Reagan Lyle of The Monocasters said:

"I'm very happy to be able to do that. This was an unforgettable experience and I learned a lot."
