Crack in the Road

Now in its third year, Bristol’s Simple Things Festival has hit one hell of a stride since her recent conception.

For the 3rd year the festival will take over the cities’ many venues and clubs, filling them with pretty much every artist you’ve wanted to see in the last 3 years, (and beyond). The full line up is likely to cause you to have a little wee.

No shit, it’s bananas.

Simple Things is a purist city festival, done right. Forget frustratingly low decibel limits and 11pm curfews a la Field Day, and instead get used to an immaculately curated festival that works with its environment, rather than against it. You can’t recreate a country festival in London – people should stop trying.

Aaaaaanyway Field Day rant – OVER.

The festival takes place this Saturday, (Oct. 12), from 12pm Saturday – 5am Sunday. Tickets are very reasonably priced at £40 and can be bought HERE.
