Last year’s edition of the festival was the first to be held at Ashton Court; in 2021 it was held at Clifton Downs, having previously been held at Eastville Park since 2015. Ahead of the 2022 edition, which featured the likes of Chase & Status, Bicep, Arlo Parks and Mura Masa, the festival announced a ban on glitter and single-use plastics.

Earlier this week, Fatboy Slim said he regrets ever meeting David Bowie, recalling how the late icon seemed “incredulous” to the DJ when they passed each other.
The “Moladh Tú” DJ went on to tell a story about a private show Bowie was holding in London as a prelude to a live tour. Cook, who was said to be at the top of his game at the time, attended the after party.
When Cook said, “By the way, I’m Fatboy Slim,” after asking Bowie for a cigarette, Bowie replied, “Yeah, I know,” before continuing his conversation with someone else .
Last year, Olly Alexander (aka Years & Years) said he would no longer carry items from Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty range after Johnny Depp walked in the brand’s show.
