On Saturday 23 May over 8,000 of you tuned in to support Bristol’s music scene as we live streamed a 10-hour festival of local and national talent in the Bristol Takeover, raising over £11,500 for venues and artists.
Save the date and get comfy on your sofa, because we’re back for Part. 2, with another line up of incredible artists and partnering venues to be announced very soon.
This live streamed festival will once again be free to watch, but we ask that if you can, please donate what you might normally spend on a gig ticket via our Crowdfunder page.
50% of donations will support participating artists, 50% of donations will support Bristol music venues in collaboration with Music Venue Trust’s Save Our Venues campaign.
This time we’re hoping to hit £20,000 – which as well as supporting artists and venues directly, will be used to create future digital music festivals in the autumn as well as a city-wide live Takeover event when we are able to safely reopen.
The impact of the outbreak is still likely to last a long time for artists and venues, as there are many pitfalls to move safely back towards live events and revenue streams dried up a long time ago, so please do tune in and donate if you can.
Bristol is a live music city, let’s make sure it can stay that way.

Save Our Venues Campaign
Save Our Venues is a new national campaign to save hundreds of grassroots music venues at imminent risk of being closed down – permanently.
Without these independent venues the live music scene in the UK will die. These grassroots venues play a crucial role in the development of British music, nurturing local talent, providing a platform for artists to build their careers and develop their music and their performance skills. These venues also play a vital role in the cultural and economic vibrancy of any village, town or city.
