The Bristol Festival (Brisfest) is the region's largest community festival, organised by volunteers to showcase Southwest talent from music and dance, to cabaret and art; A celebration of Bristol culture, created to inspire passion and creativity. Brisfest brings you over 200 bands & 150 DJs, with 35 hours of music, digital art, stand up comedy, wacky games and festival vibes.
As a not-for-profit festival BrisFest is almost entirely run by volunteers and all profits are reinvested back into the festival to make it bigger and better each year, supporting local artists and training volunteers in everything from stage management to recognised qualifications in health and safety.
BrisFest’s rapidly increasing popularity means that is has outgrown its city centre site and is moving to Ashton Court which will increase the festival’s capacity to 40,000 over the two days.
The Bristol Festival Community Group is a registered charity and the entire festival is organised by volunteers who undertake charity work throughout the year. Organisers also provide training and skills development as part of the work. The Bristol Festival Community Group is therefore all about supporting and promoting Arts, Music and Culture in Bristol and the South West. This is achieved by staging Brisfest which is a high profile annual community festival event, running year-round workshops, music and art events, and aiding personal development in these industries through work placements, skills swaps and training.
