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.
