The Avon stage will be headlined by a live set from electronic band Orbital and will also host performances from producer/DJ Goldie and the Heritage Ensemble, Basement Jaxx playing their world beating DJ set, Channel One  reggae soundsystem and Laid Blak.

Discussion and debate has been a key part of The Downs Bristol since its inception three years ago and once again festival goers can expect the return of The Information Stage, a space where key note speakers address issues affecting UK society.

Previous years have featured panels and esteemed spoken word performers  and last year film director Ken Loach. The Information Stage will also feature live music in the evening for the first time, with the line up being revealed very soon.

Tickets for the one day festival go on sale from Friday 2nd March.
