Team Love & Crosstown Concerts have announce Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds will headline The Downs Bristol at the end of the summer.

The Downs Bristol returns in 2018 with a stellar line up which also features special guest Paul Weller, Orbital and Goldie & the Heritage Ensemble on Saturday 1st September.

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds , preceded by friend and collaborator Paul Weller , will take to the main Downs stage as part of a line-up that also features local heroes The Heavy , Houston trio Khruangbin, Nadine Shah and Dream Wife.

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.

Discussion and debate has been a key part of The Downs Bristol since its inception three years ago and once again festival goers can expect the return of The Information Stage, a space where key note speakers address issues affecting UK society. Previous years have featured panels and esteemed spoken word performers  and last year film director Ken Loach. The Information Stage will also feature live music in the evening for the first time, with the line up being revealed very soon.

Conal Dodds, co-founder of co-promoters Crosstown Concerts commented: “2017 was a great year for the festival and our 2018 line-up features some of the best live acts around. We know there’ll be a huge amount of interest in seeing Noel Gallagher and Paul Weller live in Bristol. 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.”

Tickets for the one day festival will be on sale from Friday 2nd  March, with first tickets available in person from 8am at Bristol Ticket Shop(Broadmead) and The Love Inn ( Stokes Croft) , and on general release at 9am via TheBristolDowns.com,  Seetickets.com, Gigantic.com Ticketmaster.co.uk and Bristolticketshop.co.uk.
