After an enforced hiatus last year because of the coronavirus pandemic, one of Bristol’s biggest festivals returns this weekend.
Love Saves The Day has attracted people from all over the UK since being founded in 2012 thanks to its impressive lineups, and this year it will have its largest ever capacity as it moves to a location.
After being staged at Castle Park for four years and then at Eastville Park from 2015, this year it is taking place at Clifton Downs for the first time ever, with 25,000 revellers expected to attend each day.
Co-founder Dave Harvey said festival organisers are “beyond excited” to welcome partygoers back after last year’s break.
He said: “It feels pretty surreal to be gearing up to finally get back in a field after the crippling uncertainty of the last 18 months.
“We are beyond excited to get back to what we love doing best with a really exciting lineup, focussed on the wealth of amazing UK talent with a heavy Bristol focus this year, which is something we only want to develop further. The lineup really shows the wealth of talent the country’s got to offer right now.”
This year’s event will feature four main stages playing host to dozens of acts covering a wide range of genres, as is tradition at Love Saves The Day.
Major artists performing live across the weekend include Mahalia, Little Simz, Slowthai, Ghetts and Pa Salieu, as well as a set from Bristol favourites Elder Island on the Saturday.
As ever at Love Saves The Day there’s a feast of drum & bass to enjoy, with DJs from the genre including Shy FX, Clipz, Hybrid Minds and BCee.
Fans of house and techno meanwhile can get stuck into sets from Ben UFO b2b Shanti Celeste, Craig Richards b2b Nicolas Lutz and Jamz Supernova, to name just a few.

You’ll need to be quick if you want to get involved though, as tickets are into the final tier on both days, meaning there aren’t many left at all. Day tickets for both Saturday and Sunday are priced at £61, which includes booking fee.
