Are you sick of news about the BBC 6 Music Festival yet? Didn’t think so. After the main part of the festival sold out in literally a morning, you might be thinking you will be spending the weekend sitting in your pants again. Never fear, as well is the loads of great Fringe stuff going on, BBC 6 have announced the By Day and By Night parts of the festivals.
The day part will be held in the Trinity Centre between 10:30am and 4pm on both the Saturday and Sunday. Unlike the main tickets though, 65% of the allocation will be available to buy only from Bristol Ticket shop from the 1st of February and, unlike the pretty steep prices of the rest of the weekend, will only cost you a fiver.
Oh yeah, and to make it even better you’ll be seeing Julian Cope, Floating Points, and loads others live, as well as a special preview screening of Don Letts’ “Ring The Alarm – The DJ Derek Story”. Pile on a load of poetry, DJ’s and art, and it’s looking to be a lot of fun.
The night part takes place after the main event, in Basement 45 on the Friday and Motion on the Saturday. With Pinch and Mary Ann Hobbs curating a special Bristol showcase on the Friday and Craig Charles, Julio Bashmore and The Allergies taking over the Saturday, bring several pairs of dancing shoes. Tickets are between £10 and £15 pounds and released on the 1st of February as well.
More information can be found on the BBC 6 Music website.
