Belle & Sebastian

plus Django Django

This event has passed

We proudly present indie-pop icons Belle and Sebastian at The Amphitheatre, Bristol Harbourside on Fri 15 Jul 2022.

Led by Stuart Murdoch, Glasgow’s Belle and Sebastian have provided the soundtrack for love-struck teens and yearning adults for over 25 years.

Creating beautiful, sensitive work that harnesses the power of 60s-nodding pop melodies and a whimsical charm, the band’s back catalogue has “a song for every mood” (Louder Than War), delivering enigmatic yet “life-affirming chamber pop” (The Guardian) at every turn.

Having played to a sold-out crowd at Bristol Beacon in 2015, this very special Harbourside gig marks Belle and Sebastian’s triumphant return to Bristol and their biggest show in the city to date.

This summer, against the glimmering backdrop of Bristol’s Harbourside, expect a gloriously joyous indie pop party ahead of Bristol Harbour Festival.

Presented by Bristol Beacon
