Trending live music in Bristol this weekend

There are more than 59 gigs happening in Bristol this weekend and we've managed to collect them all onto this one page. The event listings below include all the local bands and musicians playing on both Friday and Saturday evenings. If you are planning on going to any of the larger gigs and concerts this weekend we strongly recommend buy tickets in advance from our ticket shop.
FUTUR VILLE SUMMIT  tickets
What does the future of Bristol's cultural spaces look like? With FUTUR VILLE Summit, Artspace Lifespace host a weekend of discussion, performance and workshops to mobilize and self-organise against insensitive urban development and negative cultural policies. Ashton Court Estate (now part 'repurposed' as Arts Mansion) is a fitting setting to shape these alternative horizons with speakers from Trinity Centre, UWE Bristol Urban Planning, Visual Arts South West, Kiki Bristol as well as friendly developers and members of the local cabinet. Shake off any excessive thinking at the immersive theatrical afterparty hosted by Alfresco Disco and Minirigs. 🎫 Tickets (talks): hdfst.uk/E56936 🎫 Tickets (afterparty): hdfst.uk/E56935
Camp Elsewhere 2019 tickets
A bold new event from Simple Things Festival - Bristol founder and Colston Hall programmer Matthew Aitken will take place in a private forest this June. For their first public outing (the event follows a private pilot last year), the organisers of Camp Elsewhere are being extremely cautious with the 'festival' label instead likening the weekend to more of a camping-trip-with-a-lineup and placing it's stunning coastal-forest location centre stage alongside a solid music and arts programme. It's enthusing to find a tiny event with proper toilets, hot showers and no queues where an emphasis on relaxation is not at odds with a vibrant music lineup - and proof that a holistic ethos does not mean booking a bunch of worn out hippy bands... Punctuating a weekend of workshops, beach walks, talks and glowing campfires are these artists: The Wave Pictures Daniel Blumberg Jim Ghedi & Toby Hay Gwenifer Raymond bell lungs Ben Vince outsidefilm showcase Boss Morris Rozi Plain Juan Wauters Pet Shimmers SNAPPED ANKLES Yosi Horikawa Breakfast Records Leafcutter John Alabaster dePlume Rachael Dadd ICHI + Ambient Forest + Nature Disco TICKETS Early-Bird £50 General Release £67.50 Kids 5-15yrs £20 Kids 0-5yrs free Buy here: www.facebook.com/events/831500243868103/ www.campelsewhere.co.uk
