Bristol radio station to host massive Easter fundraiser party at Motion

After successfully proving its worth with a temporary broadcasting license last summer, Bristol's SWU.FM and its star-studded roster of DJs are making plans for a return later this year, kicking off with a huge five-room fundraiser party at Motion on Easter Sunday April 16.

In January, with re-developers knocking at the door, the station was forced to leave its lovingly constructed studios above Big Chill and found itself suddenly homeless, just as plans for its return were starting to take shape.

This enormous party featuring loads of Bristol's incredible musical talent will, hopefully, help fund a new studio and get the station back on air as soon as possible.

The line-up reflects the huge variety of sounds and talent, both old and new, that SWU is dedicated to pushing - from bonafide legends like jungle/D&B veterans Roni Size and Krust and dubstep originator Pinch, to local heroes such as Jakes, Stryda and Laid Blak, to red-hot fresh talent including D&B innovator Sam Binga and grime collective Bandulu Gang.

You can grab tickets and check the full line-up for the party on the Motion, SWU and Underground Tickets websites.
