Sunday 3rd June 2012. Castle Park, Bristol
This summer Bristol is to be presented with an impressive inaugural festival situated on the popular student and office-break sunny retreat that is Castle Park.
Before you dismiss such a local event due to presumptions of an amalgamation of monotonous amateur Bristol based acts and apathetic food and amusement stands just take a look at some of the names who appear on this remarkable line up.
Annie Mac, Bonobo, Mr Scruff and Roots Manuva are just some of the high-class artists who will be injecting the masses with their infectious melodies on this eagerly anticipated occasion.
The cause for such a plethora of quality acts is due to the collaboration of an abundance of experienced minds including the team behind Glastonbury Dance Village’s Wow! stage, last year’s incredible See No Evil and one half of the brains behind In:Motion.
This event has been referred to in many enlightening manners but the one which sums up the festival most colourfully speaks of ‘A celebration of music, parties and good times due to the culmination of many years spent in fields and clubs, in tents, on dance floors and stages across the UK and beyond – from the late nights to the early mornings, from lugging sound systems through muddy fields to booking amazing acts and watching them grow, everything has been moving towards this event’
Take it from a person who couldn’t have rushed to laptop sooner to book tickets, this is probably the best local festival Bristol has to offer and for such a reasonable price makes it an irrefutable summer purchase.
