As if Massive Attack’s shindig on the Downs wasn’t “massive” enough already, the Bristol legends have pulled in another Bristol legend to help with their headline slot. Yup, Tricky will be joining Massive Attack, along with the band’s new pals Young Fathers.
Both will be brought on as guests for Massive Attack’s headline set, and will be performing the collaborations they have done the Bristol group over the years. Skepta, Primal Scream and Savages will all be playing as well on the very special day, held on Bristol Downs on 3rd September.
The full lineup for the Information Stage has also been announced. Those wanting to take a break from the music can pop down and listen to talks by spoken word poet Kate Tempest, Aardman’s creative director of digital Dan Efergan and Syrian refugee Hassan Akkad.
Have a listen to Tricky and Massive Attack’s most recent collaboration whilst you scour the internet for anyone selling a ticket.
