Venn 2005

The second Venn saw the festival expand to accommodate more venues (albeit largely maintaining its geographical base in Stokes Croft/St Pauls), more acts and a simultaneous, multi-venue format on the Saturday of the event - variations upon which format would be adopted from that year onwards.


With a round-the-clock programme of diverse gigs, sessions, workshops and FM radio broadcasts, taking place inside and out, the festival made use of a wide range of small and medium sized venues, workspaces, empty shops and larger public spaces.

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