Always a highlight in Bristol’s live music calendar, Simple Things has announced their line-up for this year’s outing.
With an inimitable reputation for consistently curating some of the most forward-thinking, exciting line-ups around, this year is no different and will see Holly Herndon perform her incredible album Proto, alongside other headlining acts Ata Kak, A Certain Ratio, Nilüfer Yanya, Avalon Emerson and Kode 9 X Kōji Morimoto.
Like last year, this October’s event will see the festival split into day and night with the likes of Jayda G, Object Blue, Bruce, Girl Unit, and Siren all descending upon Lakota and Coroner’s Court for the nighttime revelries.
Always a celebration of pioneering artists locally and from further afield, local acts playing this October include eccentric, industrial-trap duo Kinlaw & Franco Franco, the eclectic, woozy indie-rock of Pet Shimmers, and the hypnotic, AV onslaught of Scalping. Not to mention many more incredible artists performing at a wealth of venues across the city.
Simple Things takes place on October 18th and 19th with tickets available here. Check out the incredibly enticing full line-up below.
