Festival fans are in for a treat when one of Bristol's best-loved events returns to the city in May.

Love Saves The Day is set to offer a strong selection of electronic and bass music when it takes place at the city’s Eastville Park, in Fishponds, across the bank holiday weekend of May 28-29.

The two-day event, which has been running since 2012, boasts an eclectic mix of installations and decorations to accompany the music. It takes place across several stages and has been a big hit in recent years.

The festival was created by the organisers of Glastonbury Festival’s Wow! Stage, the In:Motion series and fellow dance festival GlobalGathering.

This year’s headliners include Hot Chip, Dizzee Rascal, electronic-indie band Everything Everything and grime rapper Stormzy.

Other notable artists in this year’s line-up include garage acts Artful Dodger and DJ Luck and MC Neat, drum and bass stars Shy FX, High Contrast and Chase and Status, as well as dubstep pioneer Skream.

Online music magazine Resident Advisor is a big fan of Love Saves The Day.

It said: “The festival easily ranks amongst the friendliest, most-enjoyable and well-organised of the UK’s city-based offerings.

“Here’s hoping the rest are taking notes on what (makes) this weekend such a success.”

Love Saves The Day will take place at Eastville Park, in Fishponds Road, Bristol, from 11am-11pm on May 28-29.

Tickets, priced £38.50-43.45 for Saturday admission, £43.45 for Sunday admission or £71.50-82.50 for the full weekend admission, are only available by logging on to the festival’s website.
