Love Saves The Day celebrates 10th anniversary at new home with mega line-up announcement. Chase and Status (live), Bicep (live), Mura Masa, Kurupt FM, and Andy C set to headline the two-day festival’s 10 stages at Bristol’s Ashton Court.
Kicking off the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Weekend, this year’s Love Saves the Day festival is set to be bigger and better than ever before. Playing host to live sets from both headliners Chase & Status and Bicep, and taking place over Bank Holiday Thursday 2nd and Bank Holiday Friday 3rd June, the festival’s diverse offering of fresh talent and towering names will play across 10 stages at its new home, Bristol’s iconic Ashton Court.
Across both days they’re serving up some of the best artists of the moment, from tech-house legends to dnb heroes, artists pushing the parameters of grime and vocalists that touch the soul. From international superstars to emerging acts ready to give their all – and definitely ones to watch – there is something for everyone. Proudly championing locals as always, and utilising Bristol’s uncapped fountain of remarkable talent, Team Love has pulled out all the stops to celebrate a decade of love.
Alongside the increased capacity there will be ten stages, which includes their iconic and adored favourites such as the 360 degrees Centre Stage and Brouhaha, as well as The Lonely Hearts Club returning from a short hiatus – and brand new bespoke constructions that raise the bar even higher.
Dnb heads can rest assured that both The Blast and RUN partnerships will have them covered. However, for those who prefer house, techno – and all things in between – expect to be spoilt for choice. Paradiso has had a total makeover and all-new stage design, while Lost Gardens has been specially curated by Jamz Supernova on the Friday. Festival veterans Teachings in Dub are back and bringing Firmly Rooted Soundsystem, and what would LSTD be without its beloved Shambarbers?
With two new stage additions this year, festival goers are truly in for a treat- that’s if they can find them… Hidden Corners packs a healthy roster of some of Bristol’s best up-and-coming talent. Similarly, Transmission – another new structure for 2022 and hosted by SWU FM- features some of the City’s most promising young DJs alongside headliners that are notorious for packing a punch.
Organisers have promised the most memorable edition of the festival to date. Penny Warner, Team Love director, explains:
“This is a new chapter in the Love Saves story and Ashton Court is an incredibly exciting move for us. It’s allowing us to really expand the event in so many ways; more stages, bigger capacities and some of the most epic line-ups we’ve ever had…and we get the bonus of an extra-long bank holiday weekend!”
