We were saddened to hear about the death of Keith Flint on Monday. The Prodigy were very influential on our early lives and the energy Keith exhibited on stage will be surely missed. Our photographer was lucky to have had the privilege of capturing an epic set. RIP Keith and thanks for the memories... Take your brain to another dimension www.youtube.com/watch?v=a4eav7dFvc8...

Heads up folks!! All tier 1, 2, & 3 standard entry tickets have now gone and we're down to the final tier!
Thanks as always for everyone's support... we are now onto the final tier tickets for standard entry plus and we've still got other options including instalment, Public Transport Saver and Boomtown Springs.
If it weren't for The Prodigy's influence on uk youth culture in 1991 our musical landscape would have been massively different as this crazy crew introduced a new generation of kids to the sound system.
If memory serves me right 'Charly' came out in the June and caused the wave we rode in the underground rave Soundsystem scene to crash onto the rocks of commerce but as feral teens we were stomping to Prodigy white label jams months before. Taking a sample from a public information broadcast that warned us as kids to not wander off with strangers, invoking weird childhood memories and placing it into a rave tune at that point in time was a stroke of genius. It reflected the zeitgeist.
Sampling Max Romeo's 'chase the devil', adding a jaw harp and placing it into the techno arena with 'Out Of Space' echoed ragga and was a precursor for jungle and inevitably drum and bass. It changed things and The Prodigy were both the pragmatists and the catalysts of our mutating culture putting deep bass back into the clubs.
Keith Flint will be remembered as the crazy dancer and later the frontman of this iconic quartet. Thank you for your influence and for the memories.
Please welcome a new Lion. I-Tor will be flying into Bristol from his cave in Portugal next month to join Urban Lions. Aitor is the frontman in Kavemen and played lead guitar with One Love Family in Portugal and will be playing with the Lions this year. With Lions and Lionesses from across the world Urban Lions are truly outernational. #noborders #nobarriers #nofear #welcomehere KAVEMEN... See MoreSee Less
Congratulations to our bone man Sam and his wife Anna on the news of their new baby due this summer. Sam will be taking some time out of Urban Lions to spend with his new family so we're on the lookout for a new Trombone player to join us for this year's shows and beyond.
Must be based in Wiltshire, Bristol or surrounding areas, you'll need transport, you'll have to be amazing on the trombone and be dedicated to playing with Urban Lions. Filling Sam's shoes on stage will certainly be a challenge but we welcome all applicants.
