Tokyo World has quickly become a staple of the Bristol and UK festival scene, and never fails to close the season with a bang.

Taking place in mid-September for 2018; headliners such as Action Bronson, Sister Sledge, Groove Armada, Mike Skinner and Lady Leshurr top the festival’s line-up which has already made headlines just a few days after its release. 
Once again the Tokyo World line-up is daringly eclectic with an added dimension this year of many more live bands. These include names such as headliners Sister Sledge & Morcheeba, as well as Submotion Orchestra, Dub Pistols, Dreadzone, Stereo MC’s and Bristol’s very own Laid Blak. 

“We have always been supportive of the next generation of festival goers, and always will be,” said Soizic Hagège, part of the event management team at Tokyo World. “And the significant inclusion of many live bands this year on the new Live Stage is something we’re very much looking forward to.” 
This is evident from the line up for this year’s event.

Tokyo World has always been known as a festival on the forefront of modern music, with a focus on contemporary artists pushing new sounds. And now, with the expansion of the programming, the organisers are expecting an even wider audience and demographic this year. 
It goes without saying that the Mutiny Stage boasts a stellar line up Drum and Bass artists and this year’s main headliner for the Mutiny Stage is yet to be revealed. What’s more, the Hedonism Stage, will for the second year in a row host a cutting edge selection of House royalty, with: Erick Morillo, Maya Jane Coles, Steve Lawler, Kerri Chandler and Danny Tenaglia as the main headliners over both days. 

Fans of Hip Hop and Grime will not be disappointed either, as they’ll be able to enjoy sets by Ace Hood, Lethal Bizzle, Little Simz, Nadia Rose, Not3s and Ms Banks - all featured on the festival’s iconic Vulkano Stage. 
“We are working hard to be as inclusive as possible, and to integrate the full scope of both innovative and timeless music, but also of music fans and festival goers,” Soizic explained. “We truly feel that diversity and unity are what makes music festivals unique, and these are the values we strive to design our event around.”

The event runs from midday to around 11pm on the 22nd and 23rd of September, but there are also official after-parties for both days at Motion for those who want to keep on dancing. Acts are yet to be announced for this year, but both after-parties will mainly feature Electronic and Urban music artists with a splash of Drum and Bass. 

While nothing has been confirmed yet, it is safe to assume that the Tokyo World organizers will continue to explore all the ways in which Tokyo World’s values can come into play in music events and to keep pushing the boundary of this ever growing Bristol grassroots festival. 

“We want festival goers to be completely immersed in the Tokyo World ethos,” Soizic tells us. “All our work is for people to have a memorable experience, and we are constantly thinking of new ways to bring people together.”
