To mark Colston Hall’s 150th anniversary, plans have been revealed for a special outdoor performance featuring some of the UK’s best musicians and special guests at the Lloyd’s Amphitheatre on Friday 21st July.

Following the blistering success of the sold-out Goldie and the Heritage Orchestra gig in the Amphitheatre in 2015, Colston Hall will once again present a celebratory party of orchestral proportions featuring The Outlook Orchestra.

Launching the Harbour Festival weekend, the 20-piece Outlook Orchestra will perform a 100 minute live mix celebrating some of the biggest tracks heard across dancefloors on sound systems worldwide, coupled with a full live set by UK rapper and producer Roots Manuva.

The Outlook Orchestra has been specially assembled to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Outlook Festival – Europe’s leading festival of Sound System Culture.

Confirmed guests for the gig include:

Roots Manuva, Horace Andy, Dawn Penn, Loyle Carner, General Levy, Congo Natty with Nanci & Pheobe, Newham Generals, Killa P, Foreign Beggars, Jehst, Flowdan, Jenna G, Ruby Wood (Submotion Orchestra), MC Jila (Gentleman’s Dub Club), Jesse Appiah, with live effects and dub mixing from Mad Professor & Adrian Sherwood.

The Orchestra is led by BASCA award winning composer Tommy Evans, the creative driving force behind both Submotion Orchestra and Gentleman’s Dub Club.

Todd Wills, Colston Hall’s Head of Programme, said: “This celebratory 150th gig on the Harbourside will be one of the biggest celebrations of music in the city this year.”

“Outlook Festival is renowned for hosting some of the most prestigious names from bass, reggae, hip hop, dub step and DnB, so distilling that essence into a 100-minute live orchestral performance is quite some feat. We’re really delighted to be able to bring this celebration of sound system music to the city for a proper summer party.”

More guests, support artists and an after-party are still to be announced.

Tickets will go on sale at 10am on Friday 24th March. Limited phase one tickets will be available for £19.50, with standard price tickets available priced at £25.00 including the booking fee.
