Simple Things Festival Announces Line-up for May Bank Holiday

Last year a new festival arrived on the Bristol music calendar in the shape of the Simple Things Festival and this year, they’re back for more. Maintaining the one-day format and again timing it with the Sunday of the May bank holiday weekend (Sunday 6th May this year), the line-up for this year’s festival was announced last week and looks pretty good to me!

For a short line-up, click the image on the right to go larger or for text fans, here’s a longer list…

Squarepusher (Live), Caribou (DJ Set), Death In Vegas (Live), Ghostpoet, Hudson Mohawke (Live AV Show), Planningtorock, Nathan Fake, Factory Floor, Marcellus Pittman, Yacht, Rustie, Three Trapped Tigers, Lunice, Kwes, Grimes, Jackmaster, Deadboy, Male Bonding, Man Like Me, Space Dimension Controller, Lone, Cloud Boat, Errors, Bo Ningen, D/R/U/G/S, Behling & Simpson, Throwing Snow, Tropics, Becoming Real, Gross Magic, Redinho, Spencer, Tall Ships, Gaggle, Vonderpark, Cheeba (AV set), Face + Heel, Gravenhurst, Boy Friend, Stealing Sheep, Wet Nuns, Eagulls, Debukas, Morris Cowan, Origami Biro, The Night, Idles, The Kelly Twins…

Personally I’m pretty keen to see Grimes (whose new album Visions was released today) but there’s something for everyone there, I’d say. More deets and ticket links (£30) at http://www.simplethingsfestival.co.uk.
