Bristol’s Simple Things festival returns this year – and we’re hosting a stage.
FACT will be taking over Coroners Court, Stokes Croft with some of electronic music’s most unique figures. Actress, the artist behind masterpieces like Hazyville and Splazsh will bring his cloudy take on techno, hip-hop and more to the stage, while Zomby, a past collaborator with Actress, joins him. Expect everything from Atlanta hip-hop to jungle, via – we expect – a shower of exclusives from his Cult label.
Techno prodigy Happa, fresh from a FACT mix, will bring the breakneck 4×4, while the line-up is finished by Impey, an up-and-coming grime producer whose ‘Bangclap’ has become a lowkey anthem this year.
That’s not the only thing to see at Simple Things, of course: the full festival features Mogwai, Caribou, DJ Harvey, Jessy Lanza, SOPHIE, DJ Sprinkles and many more.
