Elbow have been announced as headliners for The Downs Festival, which takes place on Clifton Downs, Bristol on Saturday 2nd September 2017.
There's a second stage too, with Groove Armada (DJ set), David Rodigan, an exclusive live festival performance by Roni Size to celebrate 20 years of his mercury prize winning album New Forms, and Mad Professor.
Tom Paine, co-founder of Team Love, the organisers, commented: "Last year’s festival was one of those events we will never forget and showed that Bristol can accommodate and host an event of this scale. We’ve looked back, reviewed, learnt and we’re now ready to come back with a line-up and event site that makes the most of this all-day festival with more live music, more bars and more independent food."
‘The Information’ stage will also return, offering a dedicated area for guest speakers, question and answer sessions, film screenings, photography and charity representatives. More information on this will follow shortly.
Tickets are priced at £45 plus booking fee, and will go on sale at 9am on Friday 28th April. We'll have links to buy when on sale.
All online ticket sales will be subject to a £1 donation with funds going directly to the upkeep and maintenance of The Downs, for all of Bristol to enjoy.
There will be a limited number of reduced price tickets at £25 available to anyone unemployed or on income support. These tickets are only available in person from Bristol Ticket Shop, and supporting documentation and ID will be required. Children under 4 are free (though must be wearing adequate hearing protection) and a limited number of tickets for children aged 4- 12 years will be available at all outlets for £10 per ticket. All under 16’s need accompanying by an adult.
Tickets are restricted to six tickets per person/per billing address. Please note that in order to protect our audience from ticket touts measures will be in place to help eliminate them. The lead booker will need to attend the event (or nominate a 3rd party at the point of purchase) with their guests and will need to show photo ID in order to enter the concert arena.
