De La Soul to headline Brisfest

Hawkwind, Beardyman and Roni Size also among the first acts to be announced

Hip Hop legends De La Soul will headline this year’s Brisfest alongside Hawkwind, Beardyman and Roni Size it was announced today. They top the bill on a line-up which features an eclectic mix of over 300 acts including Babyhead, Laid Blak and Dr Meaker.

 Brisfest will take place over two days from September 22 to 23 at Ashton Court Estate. The festival announced its move from the harbourside to its “spiritual home” of Ashton Court earlier this year, increasing its capacity to 20,000 people.

There will be 11 stages to choose from at the festival, curated by a diverse range of programmers including BBC Introducing, Jelli Records, Nokia (Wi-Fi), The Gryphon and Remix.

The first Brisfest took place in 2008 after the group, now a registered charity operating as the Bristol Festival Community Group, raised the necessary £100,000 to stage the festival. Brisfest attracted 8,000 visitors in its first year on the harbourside.

This is the first year that Brisfest has included a major international headliner on its line-up.

 “We’ve grown steadily since 2008 and we’re now in a position to make the big move to Ashton Court, and take the next step in terms of booking an international headliner. We’re also giving local acts - up and coming and established - the opportunity to share a stage, so to speak, with De La Soul. This enables us to showcase the best artists from Bristol and the South West by placing them alongside a big international act. We’re extremely lucky to have a diverse and thriving music scene in Bristol and we’re proud to provide a showcase for the talent it produces at Brisfest, Brisfest is an extravaganza of music, art, comedy, theatre and circus and it’s going to be an amazing party in September!
Brisfest Director, Poppy Stephenson
