Not only is the Big Gorgeous Festival a festival with big heart, as it claims to be, giving all its profit in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support and Caring in Bristol, but it also has impeccable music taste.
The yearly happening, taking place on the panoramic cliff of Windsor Terrace in late July, has reached its third edition and, once again, will bring to Bristol some fine musical names from all over the world, just like our favourite calypsonians, Kobo Town. Next to Drew Gonçalves and music partners, you will also enjoy, among others, the upbeat energy of Mad Apple Circus, heavy funk/soul Bristol-based supergroup The LBJB ‘s, and Zimbabwean mbira master Chartwell Dutiro.
But, to give you a better idea and to give you the chance to listen to what will happen on the last Saturday of July, we asked Dan Clibery (the organizer and music programmer of the festival) to put together a playlist of the acts performing during the event, so open your heart and ears, and don’t miss the Big Gorgeous Festival!
