Sheffield’s restless rhythm squad Blood Sport charge up for a full-blooded Bristol edition of Hybrid Vigour, their mythical cross-format play zone for dancefloor experimentation and trigger movement.
Spreading their gospel of adventurous, unclassifiable, outer-national music through events, parties and recordings, Hybrid Vigour was set up in 2013 and since then has brought countless wild and wonderful artists and parties to Sheffield, including Inga Copeland, King Ayisoba and Islam Chipsy among others. Live acts sequence in with DJ sets that can be jarring, eclectic and often supplemented with synthesizers and tape machines, furthering their drive to blur the line between live performance and DJ/club culture.
Hybrid Vigour Bristol boasts a weighty calibre of electronic artists pushing things into to invigorating spaces. Blood Sport themselves lead the frenzy, fresh from their brilliant Axe Laid To The Root release on Blast First Petite that has seen them tour their relentless, heavily structuralist live show around Europe. A wall of noise and rhythm delivered with ferocious intensity, girding and grinding the audience into movement. Giant Swan‘s transcendent pulse of live noise techno needs no explanation to anyone who has seen them in the city over the past couple of years. Unfathomable and unmissable.
re:ni will be representing London’s emergent queer party specialists The Siren Collective, Happy Skull’s rising light ANINA brings a heavy shade of all things broken, and London-based Australian producer Yaws darkens a Bristol floor for the first time. Team Yeboah will be volleying bangers into the top corner throughout the night.

MATCH RULES: Yeboah loves you no matter what your sexuality, gender, ability, race or background. Tony Yeboah wouldn’t stand for any bad vibes directed towards anyone on any grounds. Neither will we. Any foul play should be reported to the Yeboah team or security and will result in immediate ejection from the field. Be smart, be kind, have fun.
ACCESSIBILITY: The Crofters Rights is a historic listed building and as a result has not been structurally adapted for easy wheelchair access. There are two steps up into the bar area from the street. On this main level there is a disabled toilet. There are three further steps from the bar level to the back room. The venue do not have any ramps but the Yeboah team will be happy to provide any assistance with lifting of a wheelchair if required. The stage in the back room is raised so acts can be viewed from a seated position and a chair can be provided upon request. There is no separate or raised area away from the main standing floorspace for crowd members. If there is anything either we or the venue can do to make your night at Yeboah more comfortable please contact us directly. We can also provide a contact telephone number for any issues encountered on the night.
