Self Esteem to headline Bristol Sounds 2023
Today, the pioneering Bristol Sounds festival announces Self Esteem as the spectacular closing headliner on Sunday 25th June 2023 joining the line-up of eclectic global talent.
Self Esteem will close the final night of the five night gig series on the harbourside stage, following in the footsteps of Jacob Collier, James, The Levellers and more who take to the stage earlier in the week. The five-day event will take place from 21st to 25th June 2023.
Self Esteem is a maximalist pop artist who has taken the world by storm this year with punchy smash hits like ‘I Do This All Of The Time’. Rebecca Lucy Taylor, aka Self Esteem, won the 2021 BBC Music Introducing poll and was nominated for the 2022 Mercury Prize for her stunning album “ Prioritise Pleasure”. Her accessible, empowering take on intelligent lyricism has delivered a number of patriarchy-smashing anthems perfect for the main stage. Self Esteem’s brutally honest performance will headline her biggest ever show in the south west taking to Bristol’s harbourside for the first time, following a plethora of impressive names from Bristol Sounds over the years including Noel Gallagher, Paolo Nutini , First Aid Kit, Sigur Ros, Craig David and George Ezra. A full line up of special guests to Self Esteem will be announced in the coming weeks.
Appearing at the Bristol Sounds event on Thursday 22nd June, Jacob Collier is an eccentric multi-instrumentalist who has built a reputation for utilising the audience as one massive choir. His innovative techniques are making serious waves in the industry in 2023, but Collier started off his musical journey making self-made videos on YouTube at home. Since then, his world-class collaborations have sky-rocketed to include Stormzy, John Mayer, Lizzo and Mahalia, as well as a surprise appearance on tour with Coldplay. For the ultimate singalong, James (plus guests!) will take over the iconic stage as the Friday night headliner. On Saturday The Levellers bring their all day event “A Beautiful Day Out “ to the amphitheatre with a line up featuring The Selecter, Black Grape, Peat & Diesel, Goldie Lookin Chain, Gaz Brookfield and Emily Breeze. A second acoustic stage line up will be revealed early next month for the Saturday line up.
