The line up for Brisfest 2012 has been announced and it will be the first time the festival will be held at Ashton Court under its new name. Brisfest was born in 2007 when a group of local people got together after the Ashton Court Festival declared bankruptcy.
At Ashton Court hip hop legend De La Soul will headline this year's event alongside Hawkwind, Beardyman and Roni Size. They top the bill on a line-up of more than 300 acts from all over the South West including Babyhead, Laid Blak and Dr Meaker.
Grammy Award winning New York trio De La Soul have sold millions of albums worldwide and in 2005 they collaborated with the Gorillaz on the single Feel Good Inc.
Moving the festival back to its old home at Ashton Court means capacity has been increased to 20,000 people with musicians playing on 11 stages.
The first Brisfest took place in 2008 after Bristol Festival Community Group raised the £100,000 they needed to stage the festival. The group is now a charity which has been established to support and promote music, art and culture whilst offering volunteering and training opportunities to local people.
This year the not-for-profit festival will take place over two days from September 22 to 23 at Ashton Court.
