Massive Attack Announces ‘Act 1.5’ Show

As a part of their ‘Act 1.5’ show, Massive Attack have announced the full line-up of artists that will be joining them on the stage.

Featuring members Robert ‘3D’ Del Naja and Grant ‘Daddy G’ Marshall, and celebrating 25 years of climate activism by Massive Attack on August 25, the trip hop collective will return to their home town of Bristol for their first UK show for five years.

By powering the show solely through green energy suppliers Ecotricity and Grid Faeries, Massive Attack hope to set a new precedent for de-carbonizing live music events, which will hopefully see ‘Act 1.5’ become the largest show with the lowest carbon and greenhouse gas emissions. 

When the group originally announced the show in December 2023, 3D said Massive Attack was “chuffed” to be returning to Bristol, South West England, and emphasized the band’s interest in making a difference regarding climate change.

In a statement, Del Naja explained:

“We’re chuffed to play our home city again and to be able do it in the right way December.” “In terms of climate change action there are no excuses left; offsetting, endless seminars and diluted declarations have all been found out – so live music must drastically reduce all primary emissions and take account of fan travel.” “Working with pioneering partners on this project means we can seriously move the dial for major live music events and help create precedents that are immediately available.”

Massive Attack will be joined by three-time Grammy winner Killer Mike, Lankum, Sam Morton and DJ Milo.
