Bristol’s flagship waterside event, the Bristol Harbour Festival, returns to the city from July 15-17 July this summer. And the event is bound to be as exciting as ever as the iconic festival is celebrating its 50th anniversary.

And to mark the big occasion will be a line-up that’s just as good. There will be nine performance areas, which will feature familiar favourites and new attractions, filling one and a half miles of the city with music, vessels, food markets, circus acts, live music and performers this July.



The amphitheatre’s Bristol Music Stage will feature Dazee, Black Roots and Doreen Doreen amongst a stellar celebration of the city’s music scene. The Circus Playground returns to Queen Square with Cirque Bijou lining up circus and street theatre performances for all the family, while Trinity Community Arts presents Bristol Dances in Millennium Square.

Ebb & Flow, an inclusive programme showcasing community collaborations and emerging and established creative voices will also feature throughout the festival. This year’s festival aims to further its engagement with the diverse range of communities that call Bristol home and champion these groups; celebrating the unique setting of its harbour it will see artists work with communities and partners to reflect the ‘ebb and flow’ of the people of Bristol.

Its set to be two days jam-packed with fun. Here’s everything you can expect from Bristol Harbour Festival’s 50th year anniversary event:
