Reflecting on our biggest event of the year: SCBP 2023

Lakota’s Stokes Croft Block Party – Channeling Bristols culture.

HUGE headliners, 150+ artists, 12+ venues, 14 hours of raving.

Thank you for joining us at SCBP this year! We don’t know about you but we are only just over what an incredible day it was.

We are over the moon to have made such great memories and captured such special moments over the course of the day and night celebrations. As usual, bringing the people of Bristol together on our iconic homeland was the forefront of the event concept. We really wanted to bring Bristol together for an unforgettable community experience by collaborating with local restaurants, shops, artists, music labels and DJs.

We would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to each and every one of you who attended. It was an jam packed day filled with sunshine, smiley faces, delicious food and stage takeovers soundtracked by the best DJs. We were overwhelmed by the heartwarming sense of Bristol community in the air as we danced around Stokes Croft once again in the sunshine.

A special thank you goes out to all the venues involved and the artists who provided non stop music and atmosphere from 12PM – 4AM. Another thank you goes out to our incredible food vendors, @jikoni_eastafrica who supplied the tastiest authentic East African loaded fries and @tasteofnapoli for their incredible pizzas, as well as @dreamvntg for coming along and providing the finest vintage clothes around. We’d also like to thank all our staff who worked tirelessly to ensure everyone had the best day + night from the office team, to security and bar staff.

In addition to this, to celebrate the occasion, we had some very special limited edition Block Party 2023 T-Shirts, meticulously hand-designed by the incredibly talented local artist, @FreddyMills. The shirts perfectly capture the essence of what the Lakota Stokes Croft Block Party represents: culture, community, peace, unity, and the power of music in Bristol’s iconic neighbourhood. Crafted from the highest quality materials, these exclusive tees are a testament to our commitment to offering the best to our partygoers. With a design that exudes vibrancy and creativity, these t-shirts can be worn year round and remain connected to the heart and soul of the Block Party. If you didn’t manage to get an official SCBP T-shirt, we will be putting these up for sale online very soon, so please keep an eye our on our socials.


Over the course of the day and night we saw artists such as Mungo’s HiFi, Solo Banton, Mandidextrous, My Nu Leng, Alexisitry, Formula, T-Lex, Bennie, A For Alpha, Alfresco Disco, Papa Nugs + many more take to he various stages across Stokes Croft.
