Stellar names at Downs festival

June 22 2018

SUMMER will finish with a flourish in Bristol this summer as The Downs Festival returns with a line-up featuring Noel Gallagher’s High-Flying Birds, Paul Weller, Orbital and Goldie & The Ensemble on Saturday, September 1st.

Former Oasis frontman Noel will be heading up the bill, with fellow British music legend Paul Weller another heavyweight act for the event. The Heavy, Houston trio Khruangbin, Nadine Shah and Dream Wife will also be playing to tens of thousands of music fans on Bristol’s much-loved green space.

The Avon stage will be headlined by a live set from electronic legends Orbital and will also host performances from producer/DJ Goldie and the Heritage Ensemble, Basement Jaxx playing their world beating DJ set, Channel One reggae soundsystem and Laid Blak.

The Information Stage, home of keynote speakers and discussion, will also return.

Conal Dodds, co-founder of co-promoters Crosstown Concerts Said: “Noel has never headlined a show in Bristol so we are really excited to bring him and his band to the city and I think we’ve got the best line up we’ve had so far at The Downs.”
