Bristol's eclectic city centre music festival

Simple Things is an eclectic city centre music festival in Bristol, held across multiple venues in the hip, south west UK city.

Showcasing a lineup that spans across genres, Simple Things does so inside some of Bristol's most popular venues. Once again the programme will be split across day and night, with the daytime programme taking place in some of Bristol's coolest venues, while the nighttime lineup will play out across Lakota and Coroner's Court Complex. 

Curated by a selection of its leading promoters, the festival has become a beacon for innovation and risk-taking by giving a platform to some of the underground's leading names and those it believes are worthy of your ears.
