This event is preceded by a panel discussion: Rumbling On: The Resonance of Sound System Culture

To celebrate our 150th anniversary, Colston Hall presents a very special outdoor performance from The Outlook Orchestra, featuring some of the UK’s best musicians and a string of special guests live at the Lloyds Amphitheatre on Bristol Harbourside.

Following the blistering success of Goldie and the Heritage Orchestra on the Harbourside in 2015, Colston Hall once again presents a celebratory party of orchestral proportions.

Launching the Harbour Festival weekend, the 20-piece Outlook Orchestra, described by The Guardian as a “glorious symphonic soundclash”, will perform a 100 minute live mix celebrating some of the biggest tracks heard across dance floors on Sound Systems worldwide, and is coupled with a full live set by UK rapper and producer Roots Manuva.

The performance also marks the 10th anniversary of Outlook Festival – Europe’s leading festival of Sound System Culture – with a string of major guests confirmed to appear for this special celebration.

Guest vocalists appearing with The Outlook Orchestra are:

Roots Manuva
Loyle Carner

Pharoahe Monch

With live mixing & effects by Adrian Sherwood & Mad Professor.

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