Go Techno at Tokyo World Festival!


Even though this summer is coming to an end that doesn't mean the festive season is over! Embrace yourself this Autumn at an amazing one-day Music Festival at Eastville Park, Bristol on 24th September at the fantastical Tokyo World Festival finale! The event will take place at midday until 11pm...get there early enough to beat the queues, with last entry at 8pm. Tokyo World Festival will be running for the third time this year. Last years Tokyo World Festival was a success so this years event have decided to expand their site by 10,000 square metres 'without increasing the capacity, so there are no sound clashes between stages and further increase volumes without breaching their licence conditions' so everybody can receive the best experience ever! There is expected to be nearly 20,000 people prepared to descend into a weekend of electronic music! The event has proven to be extremely popular as in 2001 there were only 1,000 ravers.

What's on?
This September is expected to be a spectacular one with top artists such as, Wiley...who will be this years main headliner, Big Narstie, Chip, Mike Skinner & Murkage, Preditah, Shakka, Artful Dodger, DJ Hype, Skepical, Shabba D and many more...showing off their talent amongst a field full of fun with five stages and much more entertainment dispersed around to make it an Autumn to remember! Explore the events various stages of Eastville Park, consisting of, 'Volcano' Stage, 'Shapes' Stage, 'Live' Stage for a more buzzing atmosphere, 'Mutiny' Stage and last but not least the 'Pulse' Stage.

The venue will have cash machines located 20 metres from the premises at the entrance point, otherwise to make life a little easier there will be card readers at the bars! The bars will be supplying alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages as well as a huge cocktail area to keep you buzzing! Make sure you keep up your appetite with a selection of cultural foods being sold from all around the world for vegetarians, vegans, gluten-free addicts and carnivore lovers. This September has proven to be the hottest since 100 years! Therefore, there will be free tap dispensers available from the water point at the event - near the Welfare area and Medical and Information point... So make sure you top up and stay rehydrated! It's so easy to get lost in the moment and loose something, especially in such an open area, so there will be a lost property area. If you find yourself loosing something, fear not...simply email and fingers crossed your item has been handed in! Lost items will be available to collect within a six week period or via post if you are not local to Bristol, after that they will be handed in to Bristols Trinity Road Police Station, so don't leave it too late!

Travel & Accommodation
Commute Eco-friendly to the main train station in Bristol, Temple Meads. There will also be shuttle buses for only £3 for a return journey and Hackney Taxis running on the day from the station. Taxis can be found in Tesco's car park arena...only a three-minute walk from the festival but there are only so many so I recommend public transport!
You could also pop onto a coach which will take you to Bristol city centre and again you will have the convenience of Tokyo World shuttle buses running from there too!

After Party
Make the most out of this experience and visit the ultimate Tokyo World After Party at Bristols favourite nightclub and recently renowned, Motion, from 11pm-6am, with last entry at 1am. You will have the pleasure of underground artists... Ice Kid, Mala, Phaeleh, Fearless and many more sure to satisfy the crazy clubber. The party will be presented at 74-78 Avon Street, Bristol and on a ticket basis only so grab yours quick before they run out!

Enhance your CV and make new friends by becoming a steward or volunteer or work on the bar or trade. This great opportunity will make you stand out more to potential future employers but will also mean you will have free access to the festival itself! Perfect!

Otherwise, buy tickets on: and enjoy!
