We’re live streaming 360° footage of performances straight to your smartphone – so visitors in Millennium Square and the Amphitheatre can  enjoy what’s going on across the festival. 

It’s really simple to get online:

And viewers enjoying the 360° footage will have exclusive access to a secret performance during the festival – bringing the best of Bristol to you.

The guys behind the trial want to know what you think.  When you access the 360° footage, you’ll be asked to complete a short survey, with the chance to enter a prize draw for a free Balloon Flight courtesy of Destination Bristol.
