What to expect

A festival for foodies, families and music fans alike, join 250,000 visitors and enjoy the best that Bristol has to offer at this free event.

Music fans can hear from both classic acts and local up-and-comers with live music stages set across the city. Head to The Amphitheatre Stage to see music legends Jimmy Cliff and Grandmaster Flash headline alongside other Trojan Records acts. Alternatively, if you prefer local talent, the Bristol Plays Music charity are showcasing talented young Bristolian musicians on The Discovery Stage.

Away from live music, the family-friendly Cirque Bijou will entertain crowds at Queen Square with street theatre and comedy, whilst Castle Park will host a children’s area and poetry stage. The action also moves on-water with The Harbour hosting special visits from tall ships, exciting races and other displays throughout the weekend.

For line-up announcements and information, check the Bristol Harbour Festival website.

How to get there

Due to its city-centre location, travelling by train to the festival couldn’t be easier. The festival starts at the tip of Bristol's harbour, a 20-minute walk from Bristol Temple Meads station. Buses will run between the station and the harbour.
