Massive Attack announce Huge New Gig with a Difference

25 August 2024 The Clifton Downs

Two men stand side by side against a textured, concrete wall. The man on the left has short, twisted dreadlocks and wears a dark coat. The man on the right has short hair and wears a patterned shirt under a dark jacket. Both have serious expressions.
Massive Attack

Massive Attack is back performing in Bristol, but they're doing it differently this time...

Taking place on August 25th, 2024, this will be the lowest carbon show of its size ever staged. Having last played in Bristol five years ago, the duo (Robert Del Naja and Grant Marshall) are set to perform on the Downs in an event that has a focus on climate change with major input from climate scientists. What does this look like, you may ask?

  • A localised pre-sale period to deter private car travel. Anyone living within Bristol, Bath and the surrounding Gloucestershire, Swindon and Taunton area postcodes will be able to access the local pre-sale, which goes live to sign-ups at 10am on Wednesday.
  • An entire event site powered entirely by 100 per cent renewable energy.
  • A rail travel incentive initiative that will generate a vital drawdown of audience travel emissions (where up to 80 per cent of emissions for major live music events are generated).
  • Much more!
