We are delighted to announce the return of Sequences Festival for its third year, taking over various outdoor spaces around the legendary Motion nightclub.
Sequences is a one-day outdoor event set in the heart of Bristol around the iconic Motion nightclub. Making use of the club’s expansive outdoor spaces, Sequences will be teaming up with four of the UK’s most exciting bass music institutions and making use of 3 of the world’s most powerful and revered sound systems to bring a new urban & underground event to the club’s exciting spaces.
Following on from two sell out years (including UK Festival Awards nominations for Best New Festival, Best Small Festival & Best Dance Event) we will be opening up the spaces to allow for an even larger capacity this year. We are excited to be bringing back long-time local party starters The Blast, DNB monoliths Critical Sound and Bristol based grime & dubstep collective Bandulu who will join forces with the returning Deep Medi to host the three stages this year. Continuing with the ethos of the festival, we will be bringing focused sound systems to each stage, with Bristol’s own Dirt hosting The Blast, the mighty Void Acoustics hosting Critical and soundsystem legends Mungo’s Hi Fi holding it down for Deep Medi & Bandulu.
Controlling the main area will be The Blast. For the first release of acts, they will be bringing Birmingham rap sensation Mist to headline their stage, alongside Rejjie Snow, who has just released his highly anticipated Dear Annie LP, the self-proclaimed ‘prince of garage’ Conducta with Coco on MC Duties, the mighty Mancunian and Levelz crew member Chimpo, purveyor of the new wave of dubstep and grime L U C Y and the trusted The Blast DJs. They will also be joined by a very special guest and long-time friend of the blast, Holy Goof.
After last year’s incredible showing, Legendary DNB label Critical will be bringing Critical Sound to host the second area for the third year running, with a stellar line up of acts from their wide roster and some very special guests. Holding it down for Critical for the first announcement will be a very special headline DJ performance from the mighty Noisia. Joining them will be label mate and Critical regular Mefjus, Critical head honcho Kasra and performances from Ivy Lab, Sam Binga and a special B2B set from Foreign Concept & QZB.
Finally, hosting the third area we have our first year’s guests Deep Medi joining forces with last year’s guests Bandulu to create a monster dubstep and grime experience. Joining Medi boss Mala and Bandulu bosses Kahn & Neek will be a host of acts who represent both labels to the maximum including regulars such as Hi5Ghost & Boofy and Compa, with more to be announced. We will also have appearances from Medi’s newest signee Egoless (who will be performing live) and a huge first time ever set from Commodo alongside the elusive Rocks FOE. Joining them will be soundsystem partners Mungo’s HiFi providing a weighty early afternoon set to kick things off.
Expect to see the full line up released very soon!
