Bristol’s Booze Cruise announces second wave of acts

By Yasmin Brown

For the first time, European’s fast-growing DIY festival is coming to the UK, taking place across various venues in Bristol.

The 18+ festival takes place from May 24 to 26, and joining names already announced, such as Tiny Moving Parts and Ducking Punches, are:

Apologies, I Have None, Mercy Union (featuring members of The Gaslight Anthem + The Scandals), Vacation, Traverse, Cadet Carter, Sssnakes, Harker, Triple Sundae, Pardon Us, 13 Crowes & Handsome Scoundrels

It’s already a super fun lineup, with some of the best up and coming bands in the industry at the moment, and there’s plenty more to be announced in the coming weeks and months in the lead up to the festival!

Commenting on the ethos of the festival and their new expansion to the UK, Booze Cruise organiser Stefan Jonas said:

We like Booze Cruise to feel like a boozy gathering of friends rather than a music festival. We love small, sweaty, wild shows, so seeing bands playing in clubs with a max capacity of 350 —all day long for 3 days straight—sounds like paradise to me. That, and you don’t need to sleep in a tent!

“We like to think we have a unique line up—almost none of the bands playing could be found on the bill of any other festivals this year. We love the idea of being a festival for genuine music discovery. Chances are you haven’t heard of all of the bands playing in both Bristol and Hamburg before, but you might end up walking home with a record by your new favourite band.

“Diversity and inclusivity are very important to us, and we hope that our artist programming and marketing reflect the family atmosphere we want to create at the festival.”

Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased here either as individual day tickets or weekend passes.
