Bristol to welcome new music festival Shockout in 2018

The dance music event is the brainchild of the Hospitality and The Blast brands

A brand new music festival will take place in Bristol next February, created by the founders of Hospitality and The Blast festivals.

The indoor festival, Shockout, will merge the two brands after a decade of working with each other, with Hospitality Bristol celebrating its 10th anniversary last year.

The event will take place at the Bath and West Showground on February 24, and will include outdoor food areas, bars and fairground rides.

Mercury Prize nominee J Hus will make his debut festival headline appearance over the weekend. The Afrobeats artist, best known for his critically acclaimed Common Sense album, will be joined on the Blast stage by Bristolian duo My Nu Leng.

The line-up offers a varied mix of genres from the dance music realm, and the event will take place between 6pm-6am.
