NEWS: Bristol Sounds announces electric-eclectic support acts for Self Esteem & Mika this June

Anna Calvi, Lynks and Divorce all set to ignite the stage ahead of Self Esteem’s performance while Britain’s Got Talent’s Calum Scott will warm up crowds ahead of global superstar, Mika 

Mika and Self Esteem will take centre stage at Bristol Sounds’ hotly anticipated opening and finale shows – with both welcoming very special guest support acts, including Anna Calvi, Lynks, Divorce and Calum Scott, who is fresh off the back of joining Take That at the King’s Coronation Concert. 

Taking over Lloyds Amphitheatre at the iconic Bristol Harbourside for a next-level opening evening of music, British singer/songwriter Calum Scott will serenade the city with classics including his platinum-selling smash “You Are The Reason”, a track that cracked the top 25 on Spotify’s US Viral 50 and hit the top 10 on iTunes single charts in 38 countries.

Warming up crowds ahead of global superstar Mika, guests can also get their vocal chords ready to go with Calum Scott’s 3x platinum-certified cover of Robyn’s “Dancing On My Own,” which earned him a Brit Award nomination in the category of Best British Single.

Bringing a hauntingly stunning, powerful and passionate performance to Bristol harbourside, Anna Calvi is a singer-songwriter and guitarist. The Ain’t No Grave singer entices audiences with dark, rich sounds that create intense and electrifying experiences, having penned the soundtrack to the final series of hit show Peaky Blinders. Bristol fans will witness her breathtaking talent on the final evening of Bristol Sounds.

Originally from Bristol and now a rising star in London, Lynks will unleash raw, gritty, tongue-in-cheek bangers to Bristol Sounds crowds. Capturing the chaotic creativeness of the queer club scene, the Silly Boy singer will take to the stage in their distinguishable style complete with signature latex mask.

Nottingham-based alt-country band Divorce burst onto the indie-rock scene with their grunge-fuelled single Services in 2022 and are expected to bring an unmissable set to the Bristol Sounds stage this summer. The four-piece band has released four singles: Services, Pretty, Checking Out and That Hill, and will be performing each on the city’s harbourside.

What can only be described as the perfect accompaniment and build-up to Self Esteem’s highly anticipated performance on Sunday 25 June, Bristol Sounds’ crescendo is sure to be heralded as one of the greatest moments for Bristol’s alternative scene. With a final support act to be announced, this incredible roster of artists is sure to capture, welcome and celebrate inclusivity, queerness and empowerment.
