In a momentous move for one of Bristol’s cultural heritage sites, Boiler Room have announced a one-off special event on Turbo Island, with world renowned DJ Paul Oakenfold headlining the event.
Playing a special “sunset show” on 20th April, Oakenfold will be the first artist to play at the site, which has survived continuous threats from gentrification in the Stokes Croft area and is considered a vital part of Bristol’s cultural history. The show is part of a special series of shows from Boiler Room, looking to raise awareness of the numerous cultural heritage areas around the country and the world.
“I am so lucky to be able to share my music from such an iconic site,” explained Oakenfold; “The energy there will be like nowhere else on earth, and this will be reflected in my music and performance. Despite having performed at incredible events and locations all across the globe, sunset at Turbo Island will be the most magical.”
The performance will be recorded for an album, ‘Live At Turbo Island’, which will capture the incredibly special moment for the city and its music community. Oakenfold further added; “It seems like there’s a really special energy and a particular sound and ethos coming out of Bristol right now, with a proliferation of DIY labels, free-spirited parties and socially-minded initiatives coming out of Bristol right now.”
