Bristol Beacon presents a host of multigenre gigs this bank holiday

Posted on: 11 Aug 2022

Bristol Beacon are putting on a stupefying line-up of multi-genre concerts this August bank holiday.


Bristol Beacon haven’t been pulling their punches this summer – bringing big names like Chic, Belle & Sebastian and more to Bristol to soak up the sun and audience adoration.


Well, they’re doing it again – 25th-31st of August will see a whole new host of lauded and active artists swoop down on Bristol, with tickets sure to sell out quickly.


First up, kicking things off on Thursday 25th of August is veteran country singer-songwriter Gretchen Peters on stage at St George’s Bristol. Peters is an acclaimed singer-songwriter, having been inducted into the prestigious Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2014 – and lavished with multiple awards for songs like “Blackbirds” and “Independence Day”.



Swinging around to another genre completely, art-punk trio Cola (born out of the “endearing” and “electrifying” Ought) will bring resonant guitar grooves and wry vocals to Rough Trade on Friday 26th August.

Excitingly, Monday 29th of August will see grammy-nominated Tank and The Bangas come to legendary venue The Fleece, in what is sure to be a high-energy blast of a gig.


For something a little more downbeat and thoughtful, the strikingly poignant Brandy Clark will be playing that same day – Monday the 29th – at St George’s, showcasing her new album Your Life Is A Record.

For a fresh, inventive gig, catch Xenia Rubinos at Strange Brew on Tuesday 30th August – bringing a fusion of Latin rhythms, relaxed R&B, and electro-pop infused with charisma, soul and infectious groove.


Finally, to finish off the weekend with an unapologetic, high-energy psych-grunge bang, Taraka is playing on Wednesday 31st of August at Dareshack – a venue space to watch, for sure.


Tickets for these eye-catching (or should that be ear-catching?) gigs are sure to sell out fast – so be sure to book tickets now on Beacon’s website.
