This year acts like rapper Ghostpoet, dream-poppers Still Corners, dance legends Simian Mobile Disco and experimental synth queen Grimes (who just blew people's minds on Jools Holland last night) will take to the stage when the one-day party descends on the city. From 2pm to 4am on Sunday the 6th of May 6 venues will play host to the 60 confirmed acts, and be stuffed to the gills with Bristolians and revellers from further afield.

We're especially looking forward to catching Warp Records' golden boy Rustie, Texan reverb-lovers Boy Friend, Caribou, Factory Floor, dark dubstep maverick Becoming Real and Bristol's own Dutty Girl. Let's just hope we can fit them all in!
Head to the Simple Things site for more info, and follow them on Facebook and Twitter to hear the latest news in the build-up to the fest. Click here to peep their video from last year's festival, featuring interview time with Daedelus, The Kelly Twins and a whole bunch of enthusiastic partygoers.
