Forget the snow, this is the most Bristolian thing you’ll do all summer
Yep, it’s a winter wonderland out there. Bristol looks beautiful in the snow, people have been skiing down Park Street, making snowboards out of ironing boards, and being good Samaritans helping cars and people out of the snow. Bristol, you’re good in the snow. But, know what you’re also good at Bristol? The summer, with a pint of cider in hand and amazing music in your ears.
So, for one minute let’s delay that snow angel, hold fire on the snowball fight, put the toboggan fashioned from a bin lid down because tickets for The Downs are on sale- RIGHT NOW! And this year looks like the best one yet. We’ve got Noel Gallagher, Paul Weller, Orbital, Basement Jaxx, The Heavy and Goldie and the Heritage Ensemble all playing at what will be Bristol’s biggest outdoor music event. Sweet Bristol goodness!
If you are among the Bristol hardcore today then you can get your ticket in person from the Bristol Ticket Shop in Broadmead and The Love Inn at Stokes Croft.
