Festival Crowd Header

Following the announcement of the line-up last Friday, Bristol Sounds has announced the addition of a fifth night to the gig series, featuring The Cinematic Orchestra.

The pioneering jazz fusionists will bring the gig series to a close on Sunday 30 June, celebrating the release of their first album in twelve years, “To Believe.”

The events biggest ever concert series, featuring  Bloc Party, Tom Misch, The Cat Empire, Elbow and The Cinematic Orchestra runs from Wednesday 26 June – Sunday 30 June at Bristol’s Lloyd’s Amphitheatre. Tickets will be released for general sale Thursday 31st January at 9am.

Kicking off the five day event on Wednesday 26 June is the soulful and innovative Tom Misch, one of the biggest UK male performers to emerge in recent years.

Following the release of his first full-length album “ Geography”  in 2018, and a packed out field at Loves Saves the Day last summer , Tom Misch will fill the Amphitheatre with a blend of jazzy guitar and hip-hop inspired beats to welcome Bristol Sounds back to its home by the Harbour. 

On Thursday June 27  the headliner is Australian outfit The Cat Empire, widely regarded as one of the world’s greatest party bands . The Antipodean six-piece hold the record at Bristol O2 Academy having sold out a total of 10 shows there over the years , and are hugely anticipating their biggest ever south west show.

Bloc Party take to the stage on Friday 28 June for their biggest ever Bristol show. For this special gig the band will perform their ground-breaking debut album ‘Silent Alarm’, released to huge acclaim in 2005.

 Saturday 29 June will see Elbow return to a Bristol stage, having headlined The Downs festival in 2017. The perennial live favourites are headlining events across Europe this summer, and the Salford band’s headline set on the Saturday night is sure to be a hot ticket.

The five concerts will see a total of 25,000 fans enjoy live sets in the spectacular setting of Bristol’s Harbourside. The full line-up of support artists will be announced in the coming weeks.

Conal Dodds, co-founder of Crosstown Concerts commented:

“Bristol Sounds continues to go from strength to strength and this is our biggest and best line up yet. We can’t wait to bring these incredible live acts to the heart of the city and adding The Cinematic Orchestra on Sunday night ends the series on the perfect note.

“We expect this line up to sell very quickly so please get your tickets quick on Jan 31st to avoid disappointment!”
