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