Taking place at Bristol's Clifton Downs, the site has been transformed to host music, debate and children's entertainment.

Warm weather has been forecasted for this year's event, following on from torrential rain pouring down over last year's event.

If last year was about Massive Attack, which it was... This year's about establishing the event..."

– Tom Paine, Festival Director

Other artists expected to perform include De La Soul, Mad Professor and Bristol Hi-Fi.

Those wishing to attend are being urged to make use of shuttle buses provided.
