Bristol volksfest whats on 2019

Great Scott - after a Mad Max Blockbuster year in 2018, we have another Blockbuster affair lined up for 2019 and “where we’re going, we don’t need roads”…

That’s right - it will be a bombastic celebration of the ‘Back To The Future’ trilogy. So tie up your self-tying sneakers, power up the Delorean with 1.21 gigawatts, set the dial to 1955 - 1895 - 1985 and err 2015?! and hit the gas. 88mph all the way to Bristol.

Grandmaster Flash

hip hop, places and things tour

In the past, whenever you saw your favourite hip hop DJ play, it has only been about what you hear, not what you see. But what if you could see exactly what the DJs could see? What if you could see exactly what the original hip hop pioneers could see back in the day? DJs searched high and low for exclusive breaks that no other DJ had and went to great lengths to cover the label so no one knew were the breaks came from…
