Carasel from Ambush The Airwaves was performing along with TC & Jakes outside Lakota.

We had the Soul 2 Sole gospel collective based on Wilder Street with performance from various renown gospel artists. The main Green Stage had our very own Ms Divine & former presenter Tobias handling presenting duties, and headline act Blackout JA close the night alongside Daddy Freddy.

Portland Square was the home for Windrush Stage, where Ujima’s Kilaze organised performances from

local talent, and on the other side of Portland Square outside Circomedia was the live simulcast from three radio station BBC Bristol BCFM & Ujima. Hosted by DJ Style Pat Hart & Laura Rawlings.


The whole day was a great success and the presence of Ujima could be witnessed throughout the day, especially by the great work carried by our street team , made up of some of our volunteers at the station.
