Batu’s En Masse returns to Bristol this September

The multi-venue music and arts festival will hold its second edition across the city from 20-24 September.

Founded by Batu, En Masse has expanded its programme this year to encompass five different venues and six days of events. This includes performances from Bristol outfit Scalping, a debut live set from Bruce and Josey Rebelle.

Also confirmed for En Masse 2022, there’s Sarahsson, who released her debut album The Horgenaith earlier this summer on Bristol imprint Illegal Data, and techno duo Fever 103 plus DJ sets from the likes of i-sha, k means and Batu himself.

The Saturday of the festival will see a day party head to The Black Swan, featuring dub and roots reggae duo Dubkasm, Yemz, Hessle Audio’s Ben UFO and Chloe Sage. Following this, En Masse heads to Strange Brew for a closing party on 24 September with Daisy Moon, Saskia and NTS Radio’s Tom Boogizm.

Ahead of the events, the En Masse festivities kick off with a Noods Radio takeover at Mickey Zoggs on 19 September – which will be free entry. Tickets for all En Masse events are available here.
