Something for everyone in festival line-up
WITH less than two weeks to go, Bristol Harbour Festival has announced the top acts to catch over the packed three-day event.
The free festival, which runs from July 20-22, will be hosting performers on stages across the centre from Castle Park to the ss Great Britain.
In Queen Square, the stage will kick off with a Friday night concert featuring Latin-flavoured big band West African Rhythms and an appearance from local legend DJ Derek. Highlights from the rest of the weekend include a performance by British reggae icons Black Roots, Emily Wright, Swingabilly and Balkan beats.
At the Cascade Steps – the festival's longest-running stage – there will be local singer-songwriters trying out everything from folk-rock to pop, a Latin and funk five-piece, the Dave Betts Quintet and live drum and bass from Vibatronic.
