Tickets are running low for Bristol New Music 2022

Posted on: 13 Apr 2022

The festival will be taking place across a selection of established and lesser-known Bristol venues.


Only a handful of tickets remain for the imminent return of Bristol New Music, with the festival set to showcase another diverse lineup of musicians and performance artists from Thursday 5 to Sunday 8 May.


Having been unable to go ahead in 2020 due to coronavirus restrictions, the fourth edition of the biennial festival promises an adventurous sonic exploration of Bristol, spanning tried-and-tested venues as well as a handful of intimate pop-up performance spaces.


At the time of writing, a limited number of Third Release Weekend tickets and Saturday 7 May Day Passes remain available - find out more and get yours here.



Making a very welcome return to Bristol's festival calendar after an extended hiatus, Bristol New Music is back better than ever in 2022 with another vibrant arts programme.


The esteemed Birmingham Contemporary Music Group have been confirmed for what's sure to be an unforgettable performance on the final day, while vocalist, producer and DJ Coby Sey will be appearing alongside the London Contemporary Orchestra on Friday 6 May.


An impressive roster of international acts features Chicago-based singer, clarinetist and soothsayer Angel Bat David, Berlin-based saxophonist Bendik Giske and Angolan producer Nazar, with the latter performing alongside renowned visual artist Rob Heppell.


Elsewhere, Glaswegian artists Helena Celle and Joanne Robertson will be providing experimental electronics and avant-garde femme-folk performances respectively.


Of course, Bristol artists are playing a pivotal role in this year's edition of Bristol New Music, with Tara Clerkin Trio, Viridian Ensemble and Surgeons Girl among those confirmed on the lineup, with the latter providing a live score to iconic silent horror flick, Nosferatu, at Spike Island.


Alongside some of the city's best-loved arts venues including St George's Bristol, Strange Brew and the Arnolfini, the festival will be taking over St Mary Redcliffe Church and Clifton Suspension Bridge Vaults for a series of one-of-a-kind live shows.


The full lineup for Bristol New Music 2022 is available to browse now and can be found here.
