The Outlook Orchestra

To mark Colston Hall’s 150th anniversary, plans have been revealed for a special outdoor performance featuring some of the UK’s best musicians and special guests at the Lloyd’s Amphitheatre on Friday 21st July.

Following the blistering success of the sold-out Goldie and the Heritage Orchestra gig in the Amphitheatre in 2015, Colston Hall will once again present a celebratory party of orchestral proportions featuring The Outlook Orchestra.

Launching the Bristol Harbour Festival weekend, the 20-piece Outlook Orchestra will perform a 100-minute live mix celebrating some of the biggest tracks heard across dancefloors on sound systems worldwide, coupled with a full live set by UK rapper and producer Roots Manuva.

The Outlook Orchestra has been specially assembled to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Outlook Festival – Europe’s leading festival of Sound System Culture.

Confirmed guests for the gig include:

Roots Manuva, Horace Andy, Dawn Penn, Loyle Carner, General Levy, Congo Natty with Nanci & Pheobe, Newham Generals, Killa P, Foreign Beggars, Jehst, Flowdan, Jenna G, Ruby Wood (Submotion Orchestra), MC Jila (Gentleman’s Dub Club), Jesse Appiah, with live effects and dub mixing from Mad Professor and Adrian Sherwood.

The Orchestra is led by BASCA award winning composer Tommy Evans; the creative driving force behind both Submotion Orchestra and Gentleman’s Dub Club.
