Motion Bristol has been hard at work to ensure it’s in peak shape for the warmer months with the unveiling of a packed summer schedule.
Alongside the return of famed gay party Bitch! Please, Hospitality Bristol BBQ, Sequences Festival and Just Jack’s All Day Partaaay, summer at Motion Bristol will see the launch of two new spaces; Lock Yard and Yard: Open Air Club – the first of which debuts on 26th May and will operate on a weekly basis showcasing everything from disco to hip-hop.
Following on from hosting two Love Saves The Day after parties, Bristol favourites Just Jack embrace the outdoors on Saturday 3rd of June for an all day shindig set to accommodate the likes of Motor City Drum Ensemble, DJ Stingray, Objekt, Shanti Celeste, among others. Channelling a similar high octane spirit a day later, revered diggers Craig Richards and Nicolas Lutz will power the SF Terrance Party. Drum & Bass tastes will also be catered for in the month of June as Hospitality Bristol BBQ returns with a special headline performance by the London Elektricity Big Band.
The daytime parties will continue into July as house tastemakers Defected and Bristolian hero Eats Everything each host their own events, with the latter bringing the heat in both musical and culinary form. The best of Bristol will keep on coming as local label Shall Not Fade takes to the Craneyard with lo-fi craftsman Mall Grab on 22nd July. Later on in the month (29th) Sequences Festival returns with an A-Z of leading bass purveyors at the 1s and 2s through the day and into the night.
As August arrives Motion will be graced by another outing for Bristol gay party Bitch! Please, fronted by inform selector The Black Madonna and a strong supporting cast consisting of Marquis Hawkes, Em Williams, Mr Price, Zen Zero and Amour Ami. The debut of Yard: Open Air Club rounds off the busy summer schedule, launching on Saturday 26th August with Jeff Mills, Seth Troxler, Eats Everything and many more. Joining together the Lock Yard, Crane Yard and Container Yard, the project will prove to be Motion’s most ambitious yet, calling on key influencers within the Bristol scene to shape Yard’s artistic and environmental footprint.
Tickets to Motion’s summer events are now on sale.
