2014 sees the festival running in both Bristol & Glasgow for the first time, and with the two cities sharing a rich & renowned musical heritage, it seems like the perfect match.
Taking place on five stages across three venues, O2 ABC, The Art School & Broadcast, the festival sees the likes of Autechre, Nightmares on Wax, Actress & Dean Blunt rubbing shoulders with some of Glasgow’s finest including LuckyMe, LUMA, Mermaids & General Ludd.

“Despite being quite a little city by todays standards, Glasgow’s creative scene has flourished internationally of late. Simple Things is a fantastic way to bring some of electronic musics most important players, past and present, to a place that shares much with Bristol, the event’s birth place. For Glasgow talent this is a great chance to play along side some incredible guests, and show them what our little part of the world is all about.” Ryan, Mermaids
