Lawrence Hill station near Pirate Studios Bristol

Lush life

When trying to imagine the Bristol sound, names like Massive Attack, Portishead, Roni Size and Tricky come to mind. While there is still a deep relationship between the city and DnB today, new artists are carving their own path.

We're seeing exciting visual and experimental acts like Scalping, Lazarus Kane, Pet Shimmers, Yama Warashi and Tara Clerkin. Similarly, talented producers are emerging — playing live percussion and looping, such as Giant Swan, Sunun and Franco Franco. It's an electrifying time to be part of the Bristol scene.

Want to experience it for yourself? Gig venues in Bristol include:

  • Motion. Hidden behind Bristol Temple Meads station, you'll find a variety of dance acts.
  • Thekla. If you've ever wanted to dance on a cargo ship, it has a great range of gigs and club nights.
  • Crofters Rights. Located on Stokes Croft, there's a great spot at the front serving Craft beer, and venue out the back, catering to all tastes from rock to dubstep.
