Bristol-based festival Simple Things has revealed its first acts for the 10th anniversary edition in February 2024.

The festival has returned after a four year absence and, for the first time in its history, will run for a week rather than one day. The programme is centred around a full day of music on February 24, with a separate day and night programme, but includes other highlights such as a special closing concert from Fever Ray (pictured) on February 29.

The whole festival takes place in Bristol’s city centre, with day venues including Bristol Beacon, Rough Trade, Strange Brew, SWX and Sportsmans while the night programming will be hosted by Lakota & Coroners Court, Strange Brew and The Love Inn. Each venue is within a 10-minute walk of each other.

The day programming features a heavy representation of live electronic music, with Evian Christ bringing a brand new live experience to Bristol alongside Paranoid London and the haunting Gazelle Twin.

Meanwhile, the night programming is headed by returning Bristolian Julio Bashmore, who plays alongside Saoirse. Wisdom Teeth will hosting another dancefloor, inviting TraTraTrax‘s Nick León, DJ Python and Yushh to share the line-up with label bosses Facta and K-Lone. Mix Nights and Love International takeover the Coroners Courtroom for an all-female and non-binary performance featuring Josey Rebelle, Orpheu the Wizard and Daisy Moon b2b Danielle.
