Thursday 8th - Sunday 11th August 2019



This year’s Bristol International Balloon Fiesta is brought to you in partnership with Bristol Energy – your local gas and electricity supplier will donate up to £30 to their “Fuel Good Fund” for everyone that switches across the weekend, helping to keep people warm and well in their homes.

The Bristol International Balloon Fiesta is celebrating its 40th Anniversary this year, and Heart will be there in the centre of the celebrations with two fantastic Nightglows.

The most iconic part of the Balloon Fiesta are the Nightglows and firework finales. At 9pm on Thursday 9th August and Saturday 11th August, a handful of balloons are tethered in the arena and will light up the night’s sky to a specially commissioned Heart soundtrack.

To celebrate the 40th Anniversary, we’re asking Heart listeners to select your favourite feel good song from the last 40 years, which will be incorporated into the iconic Nightglow soundtrack. Along with including your favourite tune, one lucky listener will win a VIP Nightglow Backstage Tour Experience for four people! You will receive an exclusive behind the scenes tour, insight into how we put the show together and the opportunity to meet some of the pilots who put on the show. You will also get free parking along with access into the arena, where you’ll have the best seats in the house for a unique view of Heart’s spectacular Nightglow.

So what’s your favourite feel good track from the past four decades? Pharrell Williams’ Happy? Black Eye Pea’s I gotta feeling? Whitney Houston’s I’m every woman? Whatever the song, enter our VIP Nightglow Experience competition below and tells us what your favourite songs is and why, and you’ll go in the draw to win.
