Brisfest was born in 2007 after the sad demise of Bristol's beloved Ashton Court Festival, which had run into financial problems after three decades entertaining and delighting the people of the city.
Brisfest launched its first festival in September 2008, with a new location in the city centre.
In 2012, having outgrown its central site, the festival relocated to its "spiritual home" – Ashton Court Estate, and sold out with record attendance. This year is set to be a sell out too.
"We had an incredible year in 2012," says Brisfest director Poppy Stephenson, "and Brisfest 2013 is going to be even better, with more music, more stages and some practical improvements on last year, including loads more bars and toilets."
Brisfest Saturday, September 21, and Sunday, September 22, Ashton Court estate. Tickets cost £35. No tickets will be available on the gate and must be purchased via www.brisfest.co.uk, or by calling 0844 870 0000
