Few festivals in the UK, never mind Bristol, manage to pull together a lineup of such diverse, artistic quality as Simple Things. Having completed their lineup in August, they’ve just announced the stages for their full-on Bristol takeover.
Leftfield and Wild Beasts fill the festival centrepiece inside Colston Hall, while Omar Souleyman and XL boss Richard Russell accompany in the adjoining foyer (above). Stamp The Wax hosts Daphni at the O2 Academy, a new addition to the festival, with Aaron L and Harri Pepper in support. At the Firestation come Shackleton, GAIKA and Kahn & Neek, while Lakota’s guests include Juan Atkins, Intergalactic Gary, Willow and Gramrcy in Lakota. In the next door Coroners’ Court, Sassy J, Shanti Celeste and Dekmnatel Soundsystem set up show.
Final tickets can be bought from the Simple Things website.
