About Let's Rock Bristol!

The biggest 80s Festival in the south west of England is back!

We are delighted to announce that Let’s Rock Bristol! returns on the weekend of the 6th to 8th June 2014 at our new home, the Ashton Court Estate. With an enormous line-up of artists to bring you the very best of the 80s, and an action packed weekend of general 80s madness, there is plenty to do for everyone at this Family Friendly Festival!

New for 2014 is our ‚ÄúChangeover Party‚ÄĚ which includes an array of entertainment during those dull band changeovers, including our new ‚ÄúBigScreen Sing‚ÄĚ, DJ‚Äôs from Absolute 80s, other Entertainers and TV legends to keep the party going for the whole weekend!

Camping is on offer for those wanting to spend the whole weekend in 80s splendour at Ashton Court. If you want to camp in style, we also have ‚Äėglamping‚Äô options such as Eve‚Äôs Tipis and WOW Tents, plus Tangerine Fields. Campers will be exclusively entertained into the night with live music from more top acts and 80s DJ sets on Friday and Saturday night! More details to follow in the new year.

Tons of attractions to keep the children happy, such as our new free Bigtopmania circus, a super funfair including water rides and soft play areas, as well as children’s entertainers from BBC/ITV, Let’s Rock Bristol! offers the perfect weekend out for all the family. Multiple bars and a wide range of quality food outlets, selling everything from hotdogs to award-winning Tandoori, means every taste is catered for. Posh toilets will also be available for those that like a little bit of festival luxury plus a new, fantastic VIP package.

What to bring and what not to bring

Food and Drink

You can bring your own picnic into the main arena but we have a wide variety of catering on offer, including a large BBQ, Indian, Mexican and Chinese. Unfortunately, we can not allow alcohol to be brought in to, or out of the arena, but there are plenty of bars inside the arena selling a wide range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.

PLEASE NOTE: Glasses, glass bottles, alcohol and any sharp objects are not permitted anywhere on site.



Dogs are not permitted anywhere in the Festival site.

Tables and Chairs

You can bring your own tables and chairs into the main arena but Security may ask you to move them to the perimiter of the arena if they are causing any obstruction.

Gazeebo’s and Tents

Small tents are permitted into the main arena but again, Security may ask you to move them to the perimiter of the arena if they are causing any obstruction. Gazeebo’s and Larger Tents are not permitted on site.

No glass or sharp objects are permitted to be brought into the Event and all guests will be subject to a brief search on entry as part of our Security policy.


Please note that all tickets to this event are non-refundable and non-transferable. Due to operational issues beyond our control, some services may not always be available. In this unlikely situation, we are unable to offer refunds.


Please note that the line-up is subject to change, without prior notice, if circumstances beyond our control dictate this.

Disabled guests


Let’s Rock Bristol welcomes disabled festival goers and takes all reasonable measures to assist with their attendance and enjoyment of the event. At the same time, the festival takes place in the open countryside and disabled guests should be aware that the main arena, car park and surrounding areas are, naturally, fairly uneven and may be difficult to navigate.  Let’s Rock Bristol stewards will be available, subject to peak movements, to assist disabled guests in getting in to the main arena.

The main car park is immediately adjacent to the arena entrance and parking stewards will ensure that any registered disabled guests are directed to the disabled parking area, which is very close to the main arena entrance.

Disabled toilets are provided on site.

There is no covered viewing platform at Lets Rock Bristol, but there is a small area reserved for disabled guests. However, if disabled guests find that there are specific problems resulting from their disability, please contact one of the stewards who will be happy to do everything possible to help you.

In our efforts to make Let’s Rock Bristol accessible to everyone, we offer disabled ticket holders, subject to availability, a free ticket for a personal assistant.  This offer is open to those who hold a current higher rate of DLA (2012 or 2013), or other UK government approved supporting evidence of their requirement for a personal assistant.

IMPORTANT: This offer is only available to those people that would be unable to attend the festival without a full time assistant.  Every application is looked at on an individual basis and if anyone is found to be making a fraudulent application, we reserve the right to cancel both the original ticket and personal assistant ticket, before and during the event.

To apply for a personal assistant ticket, please follow the procedure below:
-  Buy a standard Adult ticket (must be online)
-  Email us proof of purchase (the email from Ticketscript or Gigantic) AND a copy of your Letter of award for DLA at high rate

Please send your email to before May 23th 2014.
