Love Saves The Day might have just gone and put together their best ever line up – they have curated a feast of music spanning a generation with something for everyone who loves dance music. Having already announced big names like Fat Boy Slim, Four Tet and Kelis for this year, the second wave is likely to cause a rush on tickets!

First up after 25 years of smash hits and a triumphant return to their roots at the start of last year, the Sugababes Mutya, Keisha and Siobhan join an impressive list of headliners for the 2023 event.
Tom Paine, director of LSTD stated, “I’m thrilled for Sugababes to be joining us at Ashton Court in 2023, it’s been a remarkable comeback for one of the most loved British pop groups, and I hope everyone is as excited as I am to see their debut Love Saves the Day performance.”
Also joining the line up we can reveal will be Michael Bibi, Mancunian drum & bass DJ Bou, heavy duty dance titans Mall Grab and Joy Anonymous guaranteeing some hands in the air moments. Let’s hope for better weather this year to enjoy them!
These legends will be accompanied over the weekend by a whole host of players that have made their mark at home or abroad including grime greats D Double E and Novelist are both set to leave their mark over the May Bank Holiday Weekend, bringing their own flavas to your ears.
