In the early 2010s, you couldn’t go on a night out, head to a festival, or kick back at a beach club (chance would be a fine thing right about now, eh) without hearing the unfailingly catchy tunes from Swedish DJ, Avicii. The Wake Me Up hitmaker took both the mainstream and electronic scene by storm, churning out banger after banger until his untimely death in 2018. Well, this summer, Avicii will be getting the Candlelight concert treatment right here in Bristol – and you can get your tickets now.
Lighting up The Mount Without on September 7, Candlelight: A Tribute to Avicii will reimagine his tracks such as I Could Be The One, Hey Brother and Lonely Together, filling the gorgeously grand space with the sounds of a string quartet. The show – of which there are two; one at 7pm and another at 9pm – will be 60-minutes long.
As for the venue, Mount Without is a special one. Having begun its life as a church in the 15th century and going through several expansions and rebuilds, it finally closed its doors and was deconsecrated in 1999. After a fire broke out at the building in 2016, the building was bought and revamped into the Mount Without space we know today. It’s a hub for creative activity in the city and is the ideal backdrop for the string quartets 60 minute set. This Candlelight concert will give the magnificent space a more intimate feel as candles surround the guests and performers. Enjoy the ambience at the Avicii Candlelight concert and kick back for this hour of bliss. Grab your tickets for this now.
