Pride Day: Sat 9 July

Silent Disco

YOU choose YOUR groove

Our Silent Disco returns for 2022.

We’ve teamed up with Thekla, Gaydio and Queenshilling for a return of this incredibly fun addition to Pride Day.

Kindly coordinated by the team from Thekla, head over to the Circus Tent from 6pm where you will find three channels to pick from with Thekla’s Pop Confessional residents going head to head in battle, with all the best Pop & Classics VS Rock VS Hip Hop against resident Queenshilling DJ Damien and Gaydio‘s Graig Law.

So get those headphones on, get your hands in the air and let battle commence.

World-famous and award-winning live music venue and club space, operated by independent national promoter DHP Family, on board a converted German cargo ship moored in Bristol Harbour since 1984.

From the jazz, folk and cabaret of the Old Profanity, the punk scene in the late 80s, and Massive Attack, Portishead and Roni Size in the 90s Thekla has always been at the forefront of the best up-and-coming new music and that’s no different today.

Since 2006 Thekla continues to operate as a landmark venue for club music under the management of DHP Family, playing host to a variety of top-tier club brands such as Hospitality DNB, Intrigue, Good time, The Blast, ESO, Madruga Festival, FOOLPROOF and many more.  Plus the best and longest-running indie and alternative night Pressure, along with Pop Confessional, a place for you to come and confess your guilty pop music pleasures. So expect an amazing selection of tunes on their channel takeover.

DJ Damien (Queenshilling)
Bristol’s top LGBTQ+ venue Queenshilling proudly presents our resident DJ Damien Bamsey, who will be filling your ears with all the best POP bangers! Expect to be singing and dancing your booty off to all your favourite DANCE, RNB and CHEESE throwbacks. An experience absolutely not to be missed for your 2022 Pride Party!’

Graig Law (Gaydio)
Gaydio is ‘Where Pride Lives’ so were buzzing when the call came through to team-up with Bristol Pride. You’ll hear all the sizzle, sparkle and energy that pride season creates when you tune in, wherever in the world you’re listening. Catch Gaydio’s Craig Law serving the biggest bops & bangers from the Gaydio Anthems playlist.
