Almost 15 years have passed since Motion first started to morph from a skatepark into a world class rave den, and a lot has happened. Especially in the last year; the club has just said farewell to its decade-long-running In:Motion events and announced a new party chapter. Motion 2020 marks the start of a new decade with a fresh look and design but still the same famously diverse and far-reaching roll call. Prior to the coronavirus outbreak shutting down clubland, this season alone was set to feature guests from Mall Grab to Mefjus, Raekwon to Randall.

Another big change for Motion has been the surrounding area. Once a sprawling industrial area, now a thriving zone for real estate, the club is currently negotiating with neighbouring developers to safeguard its future. It’s looking hopeful, too; Motion’s team have secured a deed of easement that allows them to maintain the noise levels they already produce. More work is to be done but, in true Bristol spirit, it seems like one of the most progressive negotiations that’s happened between a club and developers in the UK so far.

Meanwhile back on the club’s multiple dancefloors — including the new outdoor container yard — Motion continues to represent a full-flavoured cross-section of music. Last year guests ranged from Sasha to Shy FX, Todd Terry to Four Tet, and nights were run by big brands such as Boiler Room, Hospitality, RUN, Cirque Du Soul and The Blast. The club’s popular daytime bashes Yard: Open Air are now in their fourth year and mark the start of Motion’s summer season.
