Bristol Sounds is the brainchild of Conal Dodds, co-founder of Crosstown Concerts who originally started Bristol Summer Series and co-organised the iconic, Massive Attack at The Downs last summer.

Live music is an integral part of Bristol’s culture and with Bristol Sounds we’ve selected a top notch mix of acts over four nights to appeal to different audiences. The amphitheatre is an incredible setting for live music and we are really excited to bring these four shows to the heart of Bristol

– Conal Dodds, Organiser
