From events on Saturday

“Chris Forsyth is a lauded guitarist, composer, and bandleader whose widescreen art-rock, fusing taut compositions and mercurial improvisations, has earned him a reputation as one of the most distinctive and critically acclaimed guitarists working today. In 2013, he assembled The Solar Motel Band, who quickly developed a reputation as an incredible live act, provoking comparisons to visionary artists such as Television, The Grateful Dead, Popol Vuh, Neil Young & Crazy Horse, and Richard Thompson.”
“Asian Hawk
One of the most original turntablists operating in the world today.
Possesing not only the technical skills to hold numerous DMC titles but also the musicality to captivate and rock every audience he plays for.”
“The mighty voice of Jashwha Moses is part of Bristol’s reggae heritage since Dennis Bovell discovered him in 1978. From his first classic cut - Africa Is Our Land - through to his 2013 comeback hit No War On Earth, Jashwha and his Full Force and Power band kept alight a righteous flame of conscious roots reggae that still burns brightly today.

“Daniel Avery broke out with a slew of releases for Throne of Blood, Phantasy Sound, Optimo Music and even a fabriclive mix compilation before signing his first solo album, Drone Logic, to Erol Alkan's Phantasy Sound label in 2013. Over the years Dan has become a master of his art, fine tuning his instantly recognisable sound into the sonic techno powerhouse that he is today.”
