Komedia Bath: Free Music FestivalFriday 10 June, 2022 – Friday 10 June, 2022
5:30 PM – 10:00 PM
Komedia Bath, in partnership with Bath Spa University, is proud to present the first in a series of free music festivals showcasing the very best in live local music.
Featuring five bands across two stages, the very first of our mini-festivals will run from 5.30pm to 10.00pm on 10th June 2022, and is open to all ages (under 16s to be accompanied by an adult).
This family-friendly festival will be held four times a year, bringing regular and accessible music to the community and giving local bands the chance to perform on one of Bath’s biggest stages.
Working alongside community groups and networks, we intend to reach those pockets of the community with less access to culture and music. The event will showcase the best of Bath Spa University talent and will give all important performance opportunities to emerging talent in our area.
Bare Jams captures the sounds of that one summer you’ll never forget. Starting out as the passion project of Ollie Coombes and Sam James, the band has grown and evolved from the modest duo busking in 2011, into the full fat festival force it is today. Now a six strong collective, the members come together to blend a tight fusion of genres, seamlessly mixing flavours of reggae, dub, soul, pop and ska into a unique, collaborative sound. This sound is delivered with exuberance and relentless energy, creating a stage presence radiating love and good times. Never losing this joie de vivre, their multifaceted lyrics offer insight into a journey of highs and lows, struggles and triumphs; their veiled metaphors provide listeners with the opportunity to find solace in their own interpretations of the words, coupled with a solid backbone of eternal optimism which is delivered via the music.
