Motion announce huge lineup for their second annual Yard: Open Air Club party in August

Posted on: 22 Jun 2018

Following on from the success of last year's Yard: Open Air Club event, the Motion team has proudly announced one of their biggest-ever day party lineups, featuring a live set from Âme, dance music legend Andrew Weatherall, Rødhåd and many more on Saturday 25th August from 1pm-4am.

The full lineup for this year's Yard: Open Air Club at Motion.

Bringing the vibrant outdoor spaces of Motion to life like no other event on the calendar, Yard: Open Air Club is set to put together an even more innovative experience for Bristol's clubbing community in their second edition of the party. As well as an expertly-curated billing, the event will also feature a unique visual art programme to accompany the beats.


The acts and stages on the day will be split between three spaces: The Container Yard, The Lock Yard, and The Crane Yard, with the latter hosted this year by the Perpetual team.


Set to bring the spaces to life are some of the most respected names in house and techno from the UK and beyond. The Container Yard will be headlined by none other than Âme, with the Innervisions duo due to perform one of their vintage live sets, on the lineup alongside the likes of Antal and Leon Vynehall. Crowds at The Crane Yard will also be in very safe hands, with Berlin veteran Rødhåd on the controls.


Local fans can also keep an eye out for rising talent Ellie Stokes, joining an all-star roster at The Container Yard. The Lock Up will be treated to an accomplished three-hour set by none other than celebrated British artist Andrew Weatherall, backed up by James Dyer and Natural Sugars.


You'd be mad to miss this August bank holiday party, boasting one of the biggest Bristol lineups of the Summer at the city's most iconic club venue.
