Breakfast Records' Breakfest is returning to Thekla this weekend

Posted on: 08 Sep 2021

Catch an array of celebrated local acts on board Bristol's best-loved floating venue.


Independent Bristol-based record label Breakfast Records are gearing up for the second instalment of their one-day festival Breakfest, inviting fourteen renowned artists and bands to perform across two stages at Thekla.


From 14:00-22:00 on Saturday 11 September, attendees can enjoy hours of non-stop, clash-free live music, before heading over to an official afterparty at The Louisiana.


Tickets are running low (there are now less than thirty available according to a post from the Breakfast Records team this week) - find out more and get yours here.



Breakfest's long-awaited comeback has been close to two years in the making, with the all-day showcase first taking over Thekla in September 2019.


That debut, featuring the likes of Langkamer, Wych Elm and Big Jeff Johns among others, was one of Thekla's first full events following a huge £1m restoration project that saw the venue closed for several months to undergo essential repairs and refurbishments.


Having been unable to host in 2020 for obvious reasons, the Breakfast Records team have put together another unmissable lineup of artists from across Bristol and beyond for their return this weekend.


Kicking off with Bristol-based trio Minor Conflict, the Breakfest 2021 programme is stacked with hotly-tipped acts, including forward-thinking alternative group DAMEFRISØR, London-based outfit Honkies and explorative indie six-piece Pet Shimmers among others.


Attendees can also expect soulful solo sets from Clara Mann, Emily Isherwood, Amy May Ellis and Blackaby.


The full lineup has been curated to ensure there are no clashes between artists, with half-hour sets taking place in half-hour intervals across Thekla's two stages.


Final release tickets for Breakfest 2021, taking place at Thekla on Saturday 11 September, are on sale now and can be found here.
