HELP HEADFIRST

Headfirst is independent and relies on word of mouth, if you like the website please...

TRY ME ON YOUR PHONE

I've created an ultra-fast, lighweight version of Headfirst that's just for phones. Want to try it? Simply visit headfirstbristol.co.uk from your handset...

ADD YOUR MIXES

Connect a SoundCloud or Mixcloud track and we'll automatically attach it to any gigs you play. The whole process takes less than 30 seconds...

What is Headfirst?

Headfirst is a fresh look at the whats on website. Using local knowledge and working with the promoters and venues, we can to make Headfirst Bristol something special. This website should contain all the events for what's on in Apr 2014 in Bristol. Many music listings websites fall short becuase they try cover too many cities with too little content. Because Headfirst is purely about Bristol's music scene and no other, hopefully Headfirst will succeed where so many others have failed. Since it's humble beginnings in 2008, Headfirst now has thousands of visitors every single day.

Who uses Headfirst?

Headfirst has been created to promote quality live music and club listings in Bristol. Bristol's venues, club promoters, bands and djs all use Headfirst to promote their club events and live music across the web.
The most recent music events to be added to our complete Bristol whats on guide were Apex W/ Redlight & Boddika at Motion and Stand Up For Lyricism at The Rope Walk, both added within the last few hours.

How does Headfirst work?

Besides local knowledge, the key to how Headfirst works is cutting edge web-technology. Built by a web consultant in his free time, Headfirst will stay up-to-date with the services Bristol bands and djs actually want to use. Headfirst integrates the awesome SoundCloud and Mixcloud music services (and YouTube videos) into its whats on information. Now when you're looking at the live music in Bristol guide, you can hear the bands before you decide to see them.

What kind of Bristol events can be added to Headfirst?

Headfirst is about music. I'd like to see all gig and club listings for Bristol on the website. I encourage people to add any public events they think would be of interest to Headfirst users. That said I don't want to see bristol whats on info like like "curry and a pint night" ! The last special event added to Headfirst was Zion Food Market'at Night' at Zion Bristol.

I couldn't have built this site without the support from my brother Jack whose excellent podcast editing service is definitely worth checking out if you ever need any audio edited.
