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 from house and techno, through to punk, grime and late-night pop, Simple Things does so inside some of Bristol's most popular venues, such as Colston Hall, Lakota, The Island and The O2 Academy.

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.
