Music: #TBT to when Bastille played live on the Suspension Bridge



Jon Aitken digs out some footage of a Bristol gig with a difference.

On 21st August 2012, the relatively unknown Bastille casually played an intimate gig on the one of Bristol’s most famous landmarks, as you do. Less than two years later and they’re now more accustomed to the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury. Bit of a jump from the tiny crowd squeezed next to one end of Bristol’s most famous bridge.  Thankfully, some people recorded the whole thing:  check Bastille out – before they made it big – below.
