Backpack to Bristol Festival
Here's a heads up for all backpackers rolling deep in the city of Bristol, UK and looking for something cool to do towards the end of September. The Bristol Festival is coming to town between the 18th and 20th of the month and it sounds like it will be the perfect way to wind down after a mad month or two of more hardcore festivals. Over 2,000 local artists will be featured - quite impressive for a three-day affair - on seven different stages. There are also ten nightclubs on hand for the ravers out there and lots of boat trips down the Avon, so how you're going to choose how to spend your time I'm not quite sure!

There's lots going on over the weekend, with the Pariah Circus hanging out around Millennium Square putting on a show based on Bristol's seafaring past - complete with pirates and wenches. Ahar, me hearties! One not to be missed, I think. And if that's not enough, Rave-on-Avon sounds great with over 100 DJs playing in ten clubs across the city. Score yourself a wrist band and you'll get access to them all. Sweet!

On the last day, an after-party will be held where everyone participating in the three-day event – artists and punters alike - can wind down after a mad few days. Apparently, special guests and nautical behaviour are on the agenda. And if you need more convincing, last year's showdown was voted Venue magazine's Top Event of 2008 - this year will have to be even better!ADNFCR-2435-ID-19323761-ADNFCR
