Heading out of the club and into the venue's surrounding outdoor spaces, Motion Bristol's first ever two-day edition of YARD is go.

Taking place over the May Bank Holiday weekend (Fri 8th to Sat 9th), the weekender will see up to 6,000 revellers descend on the club's industrial complex for a stellar showcase of established and emerging talents across three unique open-air stages.

Influential DJ, producer and head honcho of We Are The Brave label, Alan Fitzpatrickwill head up the Container Yard stage on Friday, with support from Bristol favourites Dense & Pika, and two of the scene's most reputable new talents, BEC and Franky Wah.

Meanwhile, over on the Crane Yard stage on Friday, experimental DJ/producer KiNK will perform a special live show, alongside tech-house maestro Dennis Cruz and a set from electric house duo Acid Mondays.

Life and Death imprint founder DJ Tennis will also perform on Friday, with a one-off, five-hour set on the intimate riverside Lock Yard stage.

Day two of the festival sees energetic and flamboyant Glaswegian export Denis Sulta taking charge of the Container Yard with his own vivacious blend of melodic house.

He'll be joined on Saturday by Palms Trax, Jennifer Cardini and Leo Pol, whilst the brothers in Chaos in the CBD are due to headline the Crane stage, alongside freestyle house DJ Eclair Fifi and disco aficionado Baba Stiltz.

London-based electronic duo Dusky will also feature on Saturday, performing a rare, day-long set on the Lock Yard stage, chopping and sliding between melodic house, Detroit techno and other more experimental forms.
