Love Saves The Day returns for its ninth edition this weekend and this year’s event is a festival of firsts.
Normally kicking off festival season in late May, for the first time the well-loved event is taking place in September and on Clifton Downs, rather than Eastville Park which it has called home since 2015.
The (nearly) sold-out show always showcases a host of genres – this year’s lineup is no exception. Finishing at 11pm, Saturday is set to be a treat for the ears.
Saturday’s main stage lineup is rife with big names. Acclaimed singer-songwriter Mahalia is closing the stage, whilst Little Simz and Bristol band Elder Island are playing earlier in the day.
Elsewhere, the Brouhaha stage will serve up a feast of drum & bass with the likes of Shy FX, Clipz and the Born on Road crew. The acclaimed Kings of the Rollers are scheduled for the final set, hosted by the energetic Inja.

The centre stage will have attendees two-stepping all day, pumping out dance music from start to finish with a full schedule of back-to-back sets. Inimitable selectors Ben UFO and Shanti Celeste are joined on the lineup by the likes of Craig Richards, Nicolas Lutz, Hodge and Danielle.
Rappers Millionz, D Double E and Bristol-bred Jay0117 feature on the Paradiso stage, hosted by Crack Magazine. Alongside the larger stages the Lost Gardens and Teachings in Dub stages will bring good vibes all day in a more intimate setting.
