If you thought the South West's capital had seen the last of its inspiring, vibrant, underground music-scene, think again. In fact, head to Bristol itself and see for yourself - the place is buzzing with a vibrant student, youth and club community who know how to party hard after working hard (we hope). The city's Motion Ramp Park is one such success story.
Converted from a run-down old skate park into a labyrinth of clubs, courtyard and outdoor space, the centrally-located venue (it's near Temple Meads) is often jammed with happy fans of top DJs and bands - well, there certainly will be in the coming months because In:Motion, Bristol's lauded underground music project, is all systems go for the autumn, rounding off a great event-packed 2012.
The lengthy series of gigs and club-nights will pull together internationally-known acts, as well as DJs and performers who have shaped dance-music during the past few decades. On 29th September, the fun begins with Just Jack, Jamie Jones, Todd Edwards amongst the names providing uplifting live sets and/or DJ sets throughout the evening. A great start.
Other huge shows throughout the series include 2 Many DJs (13th October, with Riton), Lee Scratch Perry (26th Oct - massive night with Mala, Trojan Sound System etc), Public Enemy (28th Oct - Jehst is supporting) and Claude VonStroke closing proceedings on 9th November with Joy Orbison, Justin Martin and more. Other nights feature Wiley, Dub Pistols, Pearson Sound and the lord of acid, Josh Wink.
Tickets are available from us now for all the shows listed below and are priced from £12 (for Wiley) up to £19.50 (for Pearson Sound/Four Tet's evening).
