New developments for 2022 include the Arcadia Experience, which will add a whole new dimension to the festival. Arcadia, the performance art collective, are best known for their iconic, 50 ft fire-spitting spider at Glastonbury.
Acts playing on Arcadia’s Afterburner stage include: Redlight, Gardna, Eva Lazarus, Junior Jungle, Mr Benn and Queen Bee, Felix Joy, Tropical Tea Party, Audiomission, Fleetmac Wood, Fatboy Jim plus DJ Dunks and Flashman Funk.
Valley Fest has always showcased a huge range of Bristol talent and this year is no different. Dizreali, Dr Meaker, Doreen Doreen, Mr Bruce, Pete Josef, Nuala Honan, Smerins Anti-Social Club and Afon Sistema are all on the line up. Pompadour, a young band selected through the new application process, are ones to watch, plus the drummer is from Chew Valley.
Dolly Parton costumes at the ready! Valley Fest, now in its eighth year, has developed much support for its fancy-dress theme. This is inspired by the tribute act which, for 2022, is The Dolly Show. She will play on Sunday, ahead of the competition, which in 2021 was fierce, with joint winners being picked.
Lazy lakeside lushness
Acts to perfectly suit the lazy lakeside vibe include: Emily Barker, Isaac Stuart, Aleighchia Scott, Fedah, Waldo’s Gift, Soma Soma and The Drystones. Rising stars include Leah Weller, MAX RAD, Holysseus Fly, Mik Artistik's Ego Trip, Mr Irish Bastard, plus No Go Stop. And for something completely different check out Yama Warashi – which blends Japanese folk dance, free jazz, tribal African and psychedelic music.
