Bristol Live Turns Five!

This month, we’re celebrating our fifth birthday. What started out as a passion project between two friends has turned into something truly special and for that, we thank you dear readers! So to honour the occasion, we’ve put together some of our favourite Bristol music influencers from 2012 to today – some of the folks who keep the city exciting, inspiring and above all, inclusive.

But that’s not all! We’ll also be holding a special ‘Bristol Live Turns Five’ party at The Fleece on 21st February with cover stars – and the band behind our 2016 album of the year – Pinegrove. Frontman Evan Stephens Hall talks to me about the importance of DIY spaces and of finding empathy in a world that could use a little love. Elsewhere, Christian talks to cherished Bristolian treasure Oliver Wilde about completing his LP trilogy, the newly relaunched Tap the Feed pick their top shows for Feb and Bristol Women in Music give us the low-down on their new venture.

Thanks for sticking with us.
