What people are saying about The Downs Festival 2018

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lack of information and variety Information: I wanted to know exactly where the festival was: there was no map on the website; the downs are big if you have a disability; or are taking a load of stuff. I was not familiar with a few of the bands and wanted a video clip of the type of music they played: no information and the taster video showed an arty film with unidentified background music giving no info. I wanted to know when the bands were playing: no advanced information. I was not aware that food and drink were not allowed on site. That makes it very expensive for a family. If it was publicised it was very small print because I didnt see it. The DJ sets on the smaller stage seemed to only play current club music. There is a vast amount of music out there and the audience were very varied I would say 30% ish club goers.... consequently there wasn't much dancing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Was fantastic I was part of a massive group of people who attended last year, it was a totally different experience as it was lovely and dry. I really hope this becomes an annual event as everyone had such a good time

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Concert on the Downs I went to this event with my wife and friends and had a great time. Very well organised and enjoyable event with a friendly atmosphere. Sea sick Steve was good and Elbow were just brilliant. Love the reusable plastic cups that could be exchanged for cash at the end. Fantastic idea! Amazing way to cut down on mass waste and encourage wider recycling. Wish there were more big gigs like this on the Downs.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for me Not very good festival, full of old people and children. Unless this is what floats your boat. Waited in a que for mexican food for 2 hours or so!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great music festival but soo hungry! The music was really good with great acoustics for an outdoor event. Seasick Steve was a revelation and Elbow were very polished and really struck up a good rapport with the audience even the streaker! However with the strict security rules in terms of what you could bring into the event there were ridiculously long queues for the food and coffee, over 50 minutes! That it spoilt our enjoyment of the day. We were there from 3pm until the end and at the end there were lots of drunk people about probably because there were lots of bars with short queues but you couldn't get any food or coffee to soak it up. Double the food vans next time or let us bring a picnic in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BristolDowns Festival Well organised day festival and great weather for it! Good atmosphere and no trouble spotted anywhere near us. Good variety of music on offer but I was mainly there for headliners Elbow who always put on a great live show. The bars were well staffed and the queueing system worked well to keep waiting to a minimum. There were much longer waits if you wanted a bite to eat though. Overall a great day out!
