What do I need to bring with me for entry?
Your valid ticket purchased through Headfirst or through Trinity, and make sure it's the right ticket for the right night. A copy of ID to match the name on the Headfirst/Trinity ticket, or be with your mate who did the group a favour and bought all the tickets. A good attitude.
Who is playing where? There’s a lot going on.
We are very proud to be running the festival across almost a week, but we’re aware there’s a lot to take in. We are announcing the lineups per event, rather than all at once. The best way to understand who is playing where, and when, is to keep an eye out on our socials and to check back on Headfirst, which is where you can buy tickets and see the line up’s per event.
Are En Masse’s venues accessible?
Strange Brew and Trinity Centre venues are accessible, with accessible entrance and egress, and toilets.
Loco Klub is accessible with ground level access throughout and an accessible toilet cabin. The flooring at Loco Klub is stone and therefore uneven which may impact some access users.
The Cube, given the age of the building, is not accessible. However, if you are keen to come we will work with the venue to see what access arrangements we can make happen.
Please contact us if you feel comfortable to do so to discuss any specific accessibility requirements, or if you have venue specific questions. We understand that accessibility can mean different things, and want to be supportive so all of our dancers can experience the festival. We are also here to learn in the case we haven’t got it right.
Who can attend En Masse?
Our evening events are 18+, so anyone who is 18+ and loves music. We have worked with a range of venues and artists to encompass the rich offering the city has for music lovers across interests and styles.
We are currently working on developing a community hub day for music loving Bristolians of all ages. This day time event focuses on education and engagement. We are also looking to present a public artwork this year… you’ll be hearing more about this soon.
What are the Covid rules?
There are currently no Covid-19 related entry requirements in place at any of our partner venues.
Your friend wants to buy a ticket, but we’re sold out!
Tickets will only be valid if purchased through Headfirst or Trinity Centre’s website. If you would like to buy a ticket but we are sold out, please do join the waiting list and resale queue on Headfirst. You will be notified once someone is looking to be rid of their ticket. We strongly encourage you not to buy tickets from other sellers, as they are likely to be scammers.
How will En Masse ensure dancers are safe and feel included?
Our dancers’ safety and comfort is of the utmost importance to us. We will remove any event guests for harmful or inappropriate behaviour that may make others feel unsafe or impacts others enjoyment of the atmosphere. If at any point you feel uncomfortable in your surroundings, we encourage you to speak to venue staff who in turn will make us aware so that we can be of support to the best of our ability. Alternatively, there will always be a member of our team on the door who you can speak to at any time.
I’d like to get involved, how can I?
We are always looking to grow the En Masse family. Feel free to send over your CV, portofolio or mixes to firstname.lastname@example.org. We are looking to increase visual arts programming in 2023, so if this is you, we’d love to hear from you!
