Established in Oxford for the last three years, there's now the new one day indoor festival Ritual Union Bristol which will take place in various venues in Bristol on Saturday 28th March 2020.
Simon Bailey, Ritual Union founder, said; "I'm delighted to be bringing Ritual Union to Bristol for its inaugural year in collaboration with Richard Walsh and the rest of the team at 1% of One. We have an exciting and varied programme lined up and we hope the people of Bristol are going to love it!"
Taking place across venues on Bristol's Nelson Street - SWX, SWX 2, The Lanes, and Rough Trade - the line-up features Hampshire multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Marika Hackman, Welsh indie-rock group Boy Azooga, postpunk revivalists Squid, Rozi Plain, Willie J Healey, London two-piece JOHN, Klangstof, Porridge Radio, Talk Show, Peaness, Leif Erikson, Social Contract, Premium Leisure, Be Good, and includes local acts such as Pet Shimmers, Lynks Afrikka, and Wych Elm, with many more still to be announced.
Early bird tickets are on sale, currently priced at £20. Note: 14+ only.
Musician Willie J Healey said; "So pumped so into it. We can't wait to play Ritual Union. The lineup is always hot, it's a total compliment to be part of an event like Ritual Union."
Richard Walsh, local promoter, 1% of One, said; "Bristol is thriving like no other music scene in the country. Despite its heritage milestones that span decades and genres, the community of musicians that call the city home are paving a new path to greatness. All the way through the best of electronica, abrasive punk rock, country pop-genius and the breezy world of alternative guitars; peek out the top-tips for 2020 and I guarantee you that Bristol will be indenting those lists in a very big, very crucial way."
