We return to the great outdoors on the early May bank holiday weekend for our first ever two day festival edition of YARD: Open Air Club!
Bringing our outdoor spaces to life once again for the 4th year running, this year’s edition of the event will be our biggest to date as we invite some of our favourite artists and 6,000 party goers to join us across two days in the Bristol sunshine.
Day one of the festival sees We Are The Brave boss Alan Fitzpatrick return to the city to head up our 2000 capacity Container Yard alongside a highly anticipated live show from Bristol favourites Dense & Pika and DJ sets from two of the scenes most reputable new talents BEC and Franky Wah. Over in the Crane Yard, we’ll be treated to a live show from KiNK, who’ll be showcasing his notorious melodic wizardries alongside one of the most consistent tech-house producers in the game, Dennis Cruz, as well as a DJ set from eclectic house duo Acid Mondays. Over in the more intimate riverside Lock Yard, founder of the esteemed Life and Death imprint DJ Tennis will play a one-off 5-hour set.
Rolling into day two of the festival, Denis Sulta takes over our Container Yard with his signature sound of chaotic cuts and euphoric energy. Always in good company, the Glaswegian will be joined by spirited selector Palms Trax, genre-spanning artist Jennifer Cardini and resident of Parisian dance music institution Concrete, Leo Pol who’ll be performing live. In Dust We Trust label bosses and brothers Chaos In The CBD head up the Crane Yard alongside Eclair Fifi for a dose of freestyle House and everything in between, not forgetting Baba Stiltz who’ll also be on hand with a collection of Disco tinged burners. Over in the riverside Lock Yard, Dusky will be chopping and sliding between melodic House, Detroit Techno and more experimental forms for a rare all day long set and if their infamous ‘Take A Trip’ mixes are anything to go by, this spectacle is worth buying a ticket for on its own.
YARD: Open Air Club is a stellar showcase of established and emerging talent from the global electronic scene. Marking the early May bank holiday in true Motion style with a stacked bill of multi-dimensional artists, tickets are expected to fly out for this one.
Sustainability is also a strong focal point throughout the festival. Eco-friendly initiatives including reusable cups, canned water and vegan food offerings will be available throughout to keep party-goers’ shakedown in the sunshine guilt-free!
