Global legends The Cat Empire, from the Australian city of Melbourne are hitting the Bristol Sounds stage in their 20th year to throw their unique energy our way. Conjuring up a blend of jazz, ska, funk, rock and a bag load of latin influences they are a southern hemisphere reflection of our great city’s colourful music scene. This is the perfect opportunity for us to celebrate fusion music at its loudest and proudest with beaming brass to get us welcoming in the summer.
Getting us in the mood for some upbeat skanking with then will be the ever vibrant Ibibio Sound Machine, leading warriors of Afro Funk. So grab a pint of cider and expect to be covered in sweat within the first twenty minutes, this is going to be one hell of a lively Harbourside party.
