Since starting out as a skate park, Motion has been endlessly tweaked and transformed, its ever-shifting warehouse complex now home to huge raves, intimate sweatboxes and cutting edge live music. For the club’s latest adventure, YARD is taking things outside. A new event, and a collaboration between some of the city’s most established dance music institutions, Yard will bring Motion’s outdoor spaces to life, welcoming a new era of open-air clubbing in Bristol.
Summoning that specific type of joy that comes from dancing outdoors, YARD will be split across three newly developed open air spaces – taking place in the Container Yard, Crane Yard, and Lock Yard. In terms of bookings, Motion will be keeping things hot and heavy with line-ups comprised of some of the most respected underground names in house and techno alongside genuinely iconic ones (seriously, this is going to be big).
Capturing the spirit of outdoor partying, art curated by Mr. Price will embellish clubbers’ excursion with the kind of hazy glamour that his Studio 89 events embody. Energetic shape-throwing is actively encouraged, too, as energy levels can be replenished throughout by Motion’s new food traders, who will be serving up locally sourced food. YARD is also proud to announce that sustainability will be a strong focal point throughout, leading green thinkers Kambe will be on board helping Motion to get eco-friendly with reusable cups – keeping your shakedown in the sunshine guilt free.
“One of the most exciting things about being part of Motion is that its always evolving. There’s so much scope and opportunity to change and develop the space to create something fresh and exciting. We’ve always known how much everyone loves the outside terrace, but Yard will become its complete own entity, giving us an outdoor club space.” – Jack Scales, Motion.
Motion’s biggest and most ambitious outdoor event to date, Yard launches August 26th with a line-up that’s just as impressive as the new location. Brace yourself.
