Firebird Festival 2019

Firebird Festival 2019

Firebird Festival is back after a two year hiatus (we’d like to say it was to allow the grass to grow back, but anyone who’s been to the studio knows that isn’t it!). We’ve got a killer line up of bands from celtic folk to pop rock and we’ll have food and drinks on site as well.

Firebird festival started as an idea to celebrate the anniversary of us taking over the studios and turning it into one of the best studios in the city. All of the bands that you see onstage, rehearse with us and it’s our way of saying thank you to the bands who use our studios.

What’s it all about?

We’ll be putting up a stage in the car park, where the bands will play and there’ll be local food & drink for you to enjoy whilst listening to some great music! We’re not charging for entry, but there is a suggested donation of £3 for adults and £1 for children.

Live music

We’ve got some great artists lined up including:

Mike Dennis, Travis Waltons, Minke Whales, Waldo’s Gift, White Parker, Hot Contents, The Publicans & Fake Plastic Chairs.

We think this shows the breadth of music that is created at our studios from celtic folk to funk to straight ahead rock n roll.

You can find out more about the artists playing on our band page.

In the Studios

We’ll have the studios open as well, serving teas, coffees and Naomi’s fine cakes of course. The jamming room will make it’s triumphant return, with people able to turn up and blast out whatever song they like. We’re also in talks with a few companies to showcase their equipment at the festival.

New Production space

We’re very pleased to announce that we have taken over the building opposite and will be opening it’s doors officially at the festival. This has been something we’ve wanted to do since we first took over Firebird Studios and finally it has come true!

It’s main purpose is to give Bristol somewhere for bands going on tour to run all of their production prep in a space large enough to contain all the elements. There is a large main space for the band to rehearse in, with two side rooms for the technical team and a green room for tour management and down time.
