The dust has now settled on the hugely successful 6 Music Festival in Bristol this weekend and this week BBC Radio 6 Music has helped us relive the weekend’s festivities with some brilliant shows covering music from all the main bands as well as fringe acts and featured interviews. Factory Studios' very own Sol Curry appeared on Steve Lamacq's show yesterday to do ‘Good Day Bad Day'. Factory Studios was also lucky enough to hear a few preview snippets of sets from acts such as Kurt Vile and Elbow’s Guy Garvey before their shows at the festival when they rehearsed with us over the weekend. What an extraordinary weekend for music in our home city of Bristol.
Here's a great video of the 2015 Shapes Masked Ball at Factory Studios that sums up the party nicely. What a cracking night!!
Redfest festival will be taking place in Bristol's St George Park tomorrow, Saturday 2nd August. It's a community festival and Factory Studios are heavily involved in the production as well as programming the main stage. This year we have Yes Sir Boss headlining as well as music from 45's, Dub from Atlantis, John E Vistic Experience, Kirris Riviere's Blues Band, Baila La Cumbia, The Cadbury Sisters and Beyond Rivers. It's a wonderful festival which is absolutely free to the public and well worth a visit. Here is some footage from last year's festival to get you in the mood!
