Up to 25,000 people are expected to head to the Downs Festival in Bristol today.

If you're one of them, here's information for the day.

HOW DO I GET THERE?

The site is up at Seawalls on The Downs.

There is no parking available on site and all bay parking will be suspended and road closures will be in place - so people are being asked not to try to drive.

There are shuttle buses operated by First Group running from Long Ashton Park & Ride, Portway Park & Ride, Temple Meads and City Centre.

If you are cycling to the event, there is also a bike park on the site.

WHAT CAN I BRING?

Organiser say that while no food or drink can be brought on to the site, people will be allowed a small sealed bottle of water.

Food and drink can be bought from vendors inside the event.

WHO WILL I SEE?

Elbow are headlining the event, with other artists expected to perform including De La Soul, Mad Professor and Bristol Hi-Fi. [](http://thedownsbristol.com/) The full lineup can be found here.

The "Information Stage" is also returning - speakers include the director Ken Loach.
