‘After a long period without live music, the event marks a new and exciting rebirth for our harbourside series’

Oasis legend Noel Gallagher is among the big names set to perform at a popular Bristol music festival in 2022.

Bristol Sounds will return to Lloyd’s Ampitheatre, which offers stunning views of the harbour behind the main stage, next year after the open-air concert was forced to take a two-year break due to the pandemic.
