Love Saves The Day will kick of the summer festival season tomorrow (Saturday) when it takes over Eastville Park in Bristol.
Big names such as Shy FX, Little Dragon and Fat Freddy’s Drop are set to perform to thousands during this year’s event.
The festival started as a one-day event in Castle Park six years ago, but has since spiralled into one of Bristol’s must-visit summer events.
House, techno, disco, dubstep, electro, base, hip-hop and alternative music will kick of the summer festival season at Love Saves The Day this weekend.
Grammy-nominated Little Dragon will headline tomorrow (Saturday) while Fat Freddy’s Drop will be Sunday’s headliners.
Little Dragon are a Swedish electronic band who have been playing together since 1996. They are known for playing with the boundaries of genres such as synthpop, and alternative R&B.
Fat Freddy’s Drop will bring their eclectic blend of dub, reggae, techno and jazz to the stage, while Kate Tempest, Sky FX and Nadia Rose will also be performing at the festival.
Love Saves The Day is also the only UK festival to feature the Arcadia Afterburner – the original Arcadia instillation which is a 360-degree stage built around a central flaming spire, which has been one of Glastonbury Festival’s firm favourites for years – this year.
Gates will open at 11am each day and festival-goes are being asked to be patient and allow extra time to enter the event, as security will be heightened following events in Manchester on Monday.
The event’s organisers say they have been working closely with Avon and Somerset police in the wake of attack at Manchester Arena, in which an explosion killed 22 people, including children, and injured dozens more.
Tickets, priced from £49.50, are still available for tomorrow via www.lovesavestheday.com but Sunday and weekend tickets are sold out.
