Rave to Drum and Bass, Jungle and Bassline at this Stokes Croft club
On the way into Stokes Croft, you’ll come across Blue Mountain. It’s a long-standing Bristol nightclub, armed with a unique mural, which spans the building’s exterior.
The artwork was created by Alex Mack in 2015. According to Alex, the artwork concept “a simple and literal one.”
“A scenery made of blue mountains shaped to represent music and people and hopefully giving a bit of life to the rocks,” Mack said of the mural.
“It has also been influenced by a recent visit to a town painted completely blue in Morocco, Chefchaouen.”
Inside Blue Mountain: Drum and Bass, Jungle and Bassline (and more)
Like Lakota, Blue Mountain is a place for raves. So, don’t wear your best trainers.
Depending on the night, you can expect to hear anything from jungle to bassline, to garage to grime at Blue Mountain. But the venue’s leading specialism is definitely drum and bass.
Blue Mountain has tons of events going on throughout the week, platforming both emerging and established artists.
Over the years, Blue Mountain has played a big part in Bristol’s underground music scene and has welcomed thousands of acts to perform. Some of the most notable? Well, slowthai performed a surprise, free gig here in 2019.
In summer 2020, Blue Mountain’s roof terrace and courtyard got a lick of paint, to make way for a new, socially-distanced bar and some seated raves.
