With just a week to go, things are hotting up in the City as BrisFest 2011 is round around the corner.
Weekend tickets for the festival and Raves on the Waves tickets are selling fast partly due to the recent addition of the BrisFest Underground Afterparty, a two storey carpark next to the festival which is being converted into a digital wonderland, expect the unexpected! A real coup for the organisers and lots of credit goes to @Bristol and the local authorities for getting on board.
With such a massive range of entertainment and advanced tickets starting from the low price of £8 a day, tickets to the festival are going faster this year than ever before.
With a limited number of full weekend tickets including Rave on Avon available the organisers are advising people to pick up tickets before the festival to avoid disappointment, but tickets will be available on the gate too.
Rave on Avon Manager, Andy Smith explained ‘ we only have 3000 weekend tickets that include access to our city wide nightclub takeover and they are going very quickly, when they are gone, thats it!’
BrisFest’s now legendary line up’s don’t disappoint this year, with huge local artists Laid Blak, Dub Mafia, Pinch and the Zen Hussies taking care of business. There’s even a workout performance from Mr Motivator on Sunday afternoon and guest appearances from Congo Natty, Rodney P, Dub Pistols, Tomb Crew and more. Alongside another 500+ artists, bands and
performers of course!
BrisFest Co-ordinator, Poppy Stephenson said ‘despite the economic issues facing all events this year we feel have a fantastic event and line up and we are all really looking forward to this year’s festival. We are hoping the Bermuda Triangle theme will bring out some good fancy dress, and we’ve some real spectacular theatrics planned to end the show’
Next year could see the BrisFest team moving to greener pastures and they are clearly aiming to go out with a bang, BrisFest 2011 takes place next weekend 23-25th September, clearly the best way to goodbye to the summer.
