Massive Attack will hold an outdoor gig on the Downs this summer

It will be the first time the Downs has been used for a major music event in over fifteen years and the first time the band have held a gig in the city for over a decade.

It will be an all-day gig with other acts, we’re announcing Primal Scream and Skepta today with further announcements to follow.

Tickets will be available from 09:00 on Friday morning (20th May) so that’s today people!

Tickets will go on sale via:

Facebook updates will be posted in the event.


Useful ticket info:

There will be a limited number of reduced price tickets at £25 available to anyone unemployed or on income support. These tickets are only available in person from Bristol Ticket Shop, and supporting documentation and ID will be required.

 Children under 5 are free (though must be wearing adequate hearing protection) and a limited number of tickets for children aged 5-12 years will be available at all outlets for £10 per ticket. All under 16’s need accompanying by an adult.

Tickets are restricted to six tickets per person/per billing address. Please note that in order to protect the audience from ticket touts measure will be in place to help eliminate this. The lead booker will need to attend the event (or nominate a 3rd party at point of purchase) with their guests and will need to show photo ID in order to enter the concert arena.

It’s going to be MASSIVE!
