Thorny: FAKA + more TBA on Friday 29th June 2018

It's official. We're bringing the iconic FAKA to Bristol for a full scale night of sweaty underground sound and expressive performance. Across both decks at Bristol's premier party boat Thekla.

FAKA is a multi-disciplinary cultural movement, conceived by artists Fela Gucci and Desire Marea. They established the project to express ideas about themes central to their experiences as black queer bodies, navigating the cis-hetero-topia of post-colonial Africa.

A limited run of early bird tickets are on sale now - and stay tuned for an announcement of the full programme.


Early bird tickets £10 + optional donation*.

*We're committing to booking taxis home for any QTIPOC guests who want one. Please consider adding a £2 donation to your ticket which will contribute towards funding this.
We're also reserving a limited number of free tickets for people on a low income who want to come but can't afford to. Just email if you'd like one.

Thekla Bristol is a former cargo ship with steps by the entrance to upper and lower decks. The venue is not wheelchair accessible. Please see Thekla's website for more detailed information, and contact us at if you have access requirements - we'll work with the venue to facilitate your needs.

We create spaces that welcome everyone. We will not tolerate and will take action against racism, misogyny, homo/trans/femmephobia and any other forms of discrimination. Please respect people's space and look after each other ♥ If you have any concerns on the night please speak to one of our team.

Thorny is an artist-led platform for the underrepresented voices of Bristol and beyond.

Music Genres: 

Electronic, Techno
