Our headline concert on Saturday evening – No Go Stop are guaranteed to get you dancing! With driving percussion, ancestral funk and heady improvisations NO GO STOP celebrate Afrobeat at its finest. Featuring Marie Lister’s powerhouse vocals. 

No Go Stop’s second album ‘Where We Are’ (released in autumn 2022), captures the energetic live sound that earned the band support slots with Snarky Puppy and Ebo Taylor. As well as hosting Bristol’s tribute to Fela Kuti alongside Dele Sosimi and performing at countless festivals including Glastonbury, Greenman, Boomtown and Shambala. 

The album follows their well-received debut ‘Agbara Orin’. Which garnered support from BBC 6 Music and Songlines. Setting out their stool as a high energy 12 piece with a contemporary spin on the afrobeat sound.

“The Bristol band have a real feel for what Fela Kuti and Tony Allen created 40 years ago… No Go Stop sound like real contenders for the contemporary Afrobeat crown.”Songlines
