Tokyo World

In 2001, as Bristolians, the people behind Tokyo World felt that music events in their city were not fully representative of Bristol. They decided to organise their very first event to try and change this. Although they planned only one event, they continued organising music events in Bristol for a 6 year period. In 2007 it was felt that what they originally set out to do had been achieved.

After a few years of not organising events, the Tokyo World creators found themselves feeling similar to how they did in 2001. So they organised their very first event at Bristol's Motion nightclub. That continued with further events, each stoking the fire from the last and evolving each time to something more representative of Bristol.

In order to diversify further the Bristolian promoters organised their first one day outdoor festival, at Bristol's Castle Park in 2013. They always felt a need for an outdoor music event in their home city. Suitable locations are limited and they felt that castle park, although a central location, didn't give enough space to expand creatively. So it was decided to move Tokyo World to Eastville park in 2014.

For the people behind the scenes, everything they do is part of a creative journey. They like to keep things minimal, however are always looking to evolve. In 2015, the festival added two new stages featuring House and Techno, which has been something the festival were keen to do as it represents a large part of Bristol's music history.

The festival is using the same site in 2017, with greater space for all stages, it also allows creative sets and installations to be built especially for the event. Each creation will reflect the ethos of Tokyo World making the whole Tokyo World experience even more memorable.

2016 was absolutely amazing. However the event has grown quicker than expected. So the organisers have decided to run the Festival for a whole Weekend in 2017. Details are set to be released very soon. For what promises to be there biggest gathering to date. For more information please visit www.tokyoworld.org
