In 2016 the Bristol all-dayer featuring Massive Attack, Primal Scream and Skepta was the first major music event held on the Downs in more than 15 years.
The Downs festival returns this year with headliner Elbow. Joining the Mancunian band on the main stage on Saturday 2nd September is Seasick Steve, De La Soul, Soul II Soul and The Districts.
Lovebox Festival founders Groove Armada headline the second stage, joined by David Rodigan, and an exclusive live festival performance by Roni Size to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Mercury Prize-winning album New Forms.
The Information stage will also return this year, offering a dedicated area for guest speakers, question and answer sessions, film screenings, photography and charity representatives.
Tickets for The Downs Bristol go on sale this Friday 28th April at 9am.
