A new dance music festival is coming to Bristol in June over the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee long weekend. Love Saves The Day, taking place in Castle Park on Sunday, June 3, with tickets costing just £19.50, has already got some big names confirmed including Annie Mac, Mr Scruff, Bonobo, Roots Manuva, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs and Bristol’s very own DJ Derek.
The partnership promise that they “have come together to put all these years of experience into what will be a celebration of all of it, a celebration of this city and all that makes it so great, but beyond that a celebration of music, parties, and good times”.
“Love Saves The Day is not just a festival,” they ambitiously proclaim, “it is the culmination of many years spent in fields and clubs, in tents, on dance floors and stages across the UK and beyond. From the late nights to the early mornings, from lugging sound systems through muddy fields to booking amazing acts and watching them grow, everything has been moving towards this event.”
The arrival of Love Saves The Day looks set to scupper a possible second appearance in Bristol of the We, The People festival, whose first incarnation last year was criticised for high ticket prices and poor organisation.
Various tents will host the Love Saves The Day acts in Castle Park from 11am until 11pm, with a chill-out area for those weary if the bass and the pace get too much.
Tickets are on sale here now for £19.50 + booking fee, with the price rising to £25 with the second and £29.50 with the third release of tickets. You can buy tickets in person from Bristol Ticket Shop, Cooshti, Donuts and the White Bear pub.
When it is launched in May, you might even be able to purchase your festival ticket with the Bristol Pound, as they are one of the sponsors of the event.
