Get ready to dance on the table and hail to the ale
DJ sets from DJ Yoda, Norman Jay MBE, Jamie MacColl (Bombay Bicycle Club), Olugbenga (Metronomy) and Sip the Juice will step up to the mic for the ultimate celebration of true independent beer on the 15th – 17th September at Motion.
This year’s line-up includes turntablist, producer and cut-and-paste master DJ Yoda, the award winning pioneer of audio visual entertainment. Expect excellent mix tapes that draw inspiration from a huge range of classic movies, obscure television shows or even viral Youtube clips.
One of the world's most respected DJs, Norman Jay MBE is co-founder of the legendary Good Times Sound System and London dance music station KISS FM. Awarded an MBE for services to deejaying and music, Jay is well known for eclectic and upbeat sets.
Bombay Bicycle Club are the indie rock band that burst onto the music scene after winning the chance to perform the opening slot at V Fest way back in 2006. The London Indie four-piece promise a great live performance and are guaranteed to spice up the festival.
Electronic floor filler four-piece Metronomy will be bringing their funk infused beats and highly addictive basslines to the Bristol Craft Beer Festival this year. Bristol based Sip the Juice will also be joining the line-up, a collective of Hip Hop promoters who have been responsible for some of the biggest shows in the southwest and beyond. Their high energy sets are guaranteed to get you up and dancing.
Greg Wells, co-founder, Bristol Craft Beer Festival, commented: “We’ve brought together the best acts to compliment your brews at this year’s festival. The line up is packed full of upbeat and energetic music that will get you in the festival mood.”
