Venn 2004

The opening Venn was a feverishly diverse musical rally featuring a huge collection of maverick players and protagonists filling a range of venues across Stokes Croft in Bristol, at a time when this hotbed of musical overlap and bubbling artist activity felt underrepresented in the city's cultural narrative.


A huge gathering of local promoters, artists, production companies and record labels came together to get the festival happening, with great support from Stokes Croft businesses, venues and residents.

Venn was a collaboration between Qu Junktions, Blackout Arts, Clean Cut, Polar Produce, Under_Score & Motorboy
