Free Community Festival: The Indie Edition poster
Join us at the Indie Edition of our series of free community events: presenting 5 awesome bands across 2 stages, this mini festival will run from 16:45 to 22:15 and is open to all ages (under 16’s to be accompanied by an adult). 
We’ll have a fully stocked bar with a wide range of draught, cans and bottles including local beer and cider from Rolling Hills Brewery & Bristol Cider Company and our kitchen will be open throughout serving festival favourites, pizzas and light bites.
This event will have a British Sign Language interpreter on stage for all three Main Stage performances! 
This is a free event but we ask that you book tickets so we can best manage the evening for you! 

St Arnaud
Edmonton indie-pop songster St.Arnaud is a little bit of everywhere to everyone. Working alongside his brother and fellow creative, the YouTube animator GingerPale, St.Arnaud found a loving home on YouTube and Spotify with legions of eager listeners and was swept up in dozens of tour dates across Canada and the USA. His debut album was a DIY tour-de-force of fun-loving melodies overlaying themes of death, loss, and anxiety. 
By the release of his debut album St.Arnaud found himself to be an old hand on the folk festival circuit, a University graduate in Neuroscience, an accidental overdose survivor, and at a loss for what to do with himself next. The previous fall his bandmate, friend, and at times antagonist, was hit by a train, thus dissolving his Americana/folk pop trio North of Here. 
To honour the loss of his friend, St.Arnaud reworked and rewrote the songs he had written for the already hauntingly titled The Cost of Living. Harkening back to ‘60s protest folk, Ian’s beaming, clever lyrics belay the more cerebral themes of the songs behind bouncing doot-doots and la-las. Simply orchestrated and impeccably composed, St.Arnaud takes head-on themes of death, loss and resilience with sardonic humour and heart-on-the-sleeve, puppy-love honesty.

Mumble Tide
Mumble Tide, the Bristol-based duo of Gina Leonard and Ryan Rogers, return today with a brand-new single. ‘Kindest’ is out now via Nothing Fancy.
In their single releases to date, Mumble Tide have proven themselves a group that never repeat themselves, always curious to uncover a new creative process through which to explore the range of human emotion, and capable of switching gears at a moment’s notice. New single ‘Kindest’ is the band at their most intimate and confessional, as fluttering acoustic guitars propel a wistful atmosphere toward subtle swathes of reverb, and back again.

The Easy Peelers
The Easy Peelers are a new Bristol-based indie-rock band that throws pithy real-world lyrics, ferociously catchy riffs and hard-hitting anthemic chorus into the juicer. With influences from Peach Pit, Simple Minds and Talking Heads this four piece brings nothing but electric energy as you sing, dance and sway your troubles away.

Wave Chase
Formed in Bournemouth, UK, in early 2018, Wave Chase have built a reputation for their raucous, lively & fun live performances. The band employ a perfect blend of infectious melodies, bright, jangly guitars & a driving rhythm section to form their signature sound. 
From energetic, guitar driven, sing-alongs such as "Walk the Walk" & "Feet Don't Follow" to breezy, surf rock soundscapes found on "Sit by the Sea" to the anthemic, 80's inspired, indie pop of their latest EP "Second Best." Wave Chase are constantly developing & evolving their sonic pallet, while consistently delivering on quality song writing.

Fall down the rabbit hole of a six-piece dream-pop band who will create a world in which your weird dreams become reality. Crumb meets Beach-House, Custard emphasises the importance of individuality through surrealism. Much like Lewis Carol’s Alice ‘s Adventures in Wonderland, Custard exhibits what it’s truly like to be in a that world of your own. 
Newly formed in the West of England, Custard is known for their theatrical approach to the way that they present themselves onstage by bringing a visual element to live performance.
