Word from the Organisers

The VegfestUK organisers added, “It’s a pleasure to collaborate with Ujima Radio 98fm in showcasing the next wave of local musical talents in Bristol and offering them a platform at our revamped Bristol event at Ashton Gate this year. The new venue allows us to accommodate quite a few features with the Ujima Live Acts Stage being one of the main features, and we are really looking forward to a diverse range of tunes blazing down the Marina Dolman Way where the outdoor VegfestUK fan village is located. Big thanks to all musicians who took part in Ujima’s poll and big thanks of course to Ujima for their tremendous support for our musical elements this year.”
