The Downs Festival

About

The Downs Bristol returns in 2018 with a stellar line up featuring Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Paul Weller, Orbital and Goldie & The Ensemble on Saturday 1st September.

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds and Paul Weller will take to the main Downs stage as part of a line-up that also features local heroes The Heavy , Houston trio Khruangbin, Nadine Shah and Dream Wife.

Paul Weller had this to say – “It’s gonna be great to play on The Downs, we always have a great crowd in Bristol, see you there!”

The Avon stage will be headlined by a live set from electronic legends Orbital and will also host performances from producer/DJ Goldie and the Heritage Ensemble, Basement Jaxx playing their world beating DJ set, Channel One  reggae soundsystem and Laid Blak.

Discussion and debate has been a key part of The Downs Bristol since its inception three years ago and once again festival goers can expect the return of The Information Stage, a space where key note speakers address issues affecting UK society. Previous years have featured panels and esteemed spoken word performers  and last year film director Ken Loach. The Information Stage will also feature live music in the evening for the first time, with the line up being revealed very soon.
