Consistent live music venue and craft beer bar in Stokes Croft.
About Crofters Rights in Bristol
Long before the days of Cafe Kino, The Canteen and Poco, Stokes Croft had Turbo Island and crucial Bristol venue ?The Croft?. The good news is that neither of these hotspots of local culture are going anywhere. While the management of The Croft may have migrated to Old Market to set up the excellent Exchange, the building lives on as a great live music venue and launch pad for new club promoters.
The Crofter?s Rights maintains The Croft?s, noisy-bar-out-front, venue-in-the-backroom layout, but has significantly improved the layout of the bar room. A focus on craft beer has been prevalent since The Crofter?s Rights launch in 2014 and the bar is home to an ever-changing chalkboard of delights.

Lazarus-like return to the world stage from the globally-hyped BLK JKS. Unfairly compared to TV On The Radio; their fusion of kwaito, ska, jazz and prog-punk with South African mysticism and politics in trilingual group vocal harmonies is actually totally unique.

Breakstep drums and chest-rattling subs courtesy of Bristol’s darkside dnb / techstep futurist outfit Exodus Records. Turn up for the broken eski-junglism of local lad Napes - a large mid-week manoeuvre for fans of Samurai Breaks, Zomby or Tim Reaper & Sully.

Cosmic fantasy psychelia from this Tokyo trio of trancing organs, heavy basslines, clanging percussion and commanding vocals. Sounding like Gang Gang Dance do Japanese folk or like Far East Family Band reborn in the 21st century.
