Simple Things Festival is a multi-venue music and arts festival taking place in Bristol from 17-19 October.
The main festival takes place on Saturday 19 October and is split into Day and Night components which are ticketed separately.
This year the opening concert will take place on Friday 18 October, with William Basinski, Evelina Domnitch and Dmitry Gelfand presenting the world premiere of their new work '1000 Peacock Feathers in Foaming Acid’. This is also a separately-ticketed event.
Simple Things EXT is an expanded programme of talks, workshops, and installations taking place throughout the week. The full programme for this will be announced soon.
