Organisers say BrisFest was a huge success with hundreds of people heading to Ashton Court to watch the likes of Primal Scream yesterday. The festival replaced the old Ashton Court festival which went bankrupt after a wash out event.
The final preparations are being made at brisfest as the gates are due to open this lunchtime. Two hundred local bands will be performing alongside big names such as Primal Scream. Around twenty thousand people are expected at Ashton Court over the weekend.
This weekend the biggest music festival in Bristol, Brisfest, is being held at Ashton Court. It aims to showcase rising stars from the Westcountry alongside headline acts, which this year include Primal Scream.
Around 20,000 people are expected to attend, but the event hasn't sold out. And that's prompted concerns over its future.
It's been a perfect autumn day for the return of a Bristol music festival to its spiritual roots. Brisfest is back at Ashton Court for the first time since its predecessor collapsed five years ago. Since then organisers have staged the event on the harbourside. Tanya Mercer reports
