As autumn descends on Bristol later this year it might seem like the festivals are all done – then Simple Things 2017 will remind us that in this city the music never stops.

A gathering of carefully-selected artists that raises spirits when the nights are drawing in, it’s a festival that those in the know will tell you is one of the best for fans of live music.

This year Metronomy, Leftfield, Wild Beasts, Daphni, Clark, Juan Atkins, Omar Souleyman, Shackleton, GAIKA, Idles and many more will play over multiple venues.

Simple Things covers 17 different stages throughout Bristol city centre, all of them a short walk from each other. This year the venues include the Colston Hall, 02 Academy, The Island, the Firestation and Lakota.

For the full line-up, ticket information and more see the official Simple Things website.

“The success of the festival rests on its relationships with the some of the most exciting, extreme and experiential acts around, no matter what their mainstream credentials.”
