The Final Chapter of In:Motion

With property developments being planned in close proximity to Motion, there’s no guarantee of an 11th season of In:Motion. Therefore due to the unpredictable future, we’ve made the decision to draw the curtain on our In:Motion series this year to ensure the final series takes place in the surroundings it has been known and loved – meaning 2019 will be our tenth and final chapter.

Taking the autumn/winter season by storm one last time, this year’s programme has been planned with utmost consideration and taste to ensure the last run will end on an absolute high. This year’s opening party is set to be the biggest ever, with a 15-hour marathon of music provided by the Drumcode family, teamed with state-of-the-art production to create a mind-bending 3D show. Following this, we will be working our way through over 20 genre-bending shows, with highlights including performances from Âme, Sven Väth, Mr Scruff, Annie Mac, Paul Oakenfold, Four Tet, Shy FX, Camelphat and many more.

Motion operates as a venue, event and cultural space showcasing Bristol’s rich musical heritage. We have provided a platform for the next generation of music and are thrilled to have hosted some of the most ground-breaking events that have helped change the face of Bristol’s club scene. Our previous In:Motion seasons have seen a variety of world class acts take the stage such as Carl Cox, Fat Boy Slim, Magnetic Man, Chemical Brothers and Groove Armada to name a handful.

Over the last 10 years, Motion has continued to evolve and adapt our venue to create a labyrinth of interconnecting indoor and outdoor areas, in order to create an electrifying space for music lovers of all spheres. With venues regularly being closed down, we would like to bring awareness to the jeopardy that the music and nightlife scene is currently facing in our city. We stand by our city’s grassroots venues in the name of protecting the future of emerging artists.

Although we will soon be saying goodbye to our treasured In:Motion series, Motion will still be operating as usual as we move into 2020 and we look forward to a new wave of events and the start of a new chapter in the Motion history books.
