The Downs Festival will be held on Clifton Down, in Stoke Road, on August 31 from 1-11pm.

Organisers have listed Ms Lauryn Hill and Grace Jones as main stage headliners, with Bristol punk band Idles and Swedish singer Neneh Cherry also performing.

On the Avon Stage, esteemed UK rapper Loyle Carner will perform songs from his latest album, while High Contrast and electronic outfits Crazy P and Nightmares On Wax complete the bill.

Away from the music, the information stage - a space where speakers will tackle a range of issues affecting UK society - will return once again, while a children's area features activities, dancing and workshops for kids to enjoy.
