Love Saves The Day is an incredible two-day metropolitan festival based in Bristol, one that’s continued to stay true to its roots and is eloquently unbudging on its originality. Loosely focused on electronic music, the festival also caters to fans of grime, indie and alternative, with past performers including Bonobo, Hot Chip and Dizzee Rascal. Last year, Love Saves The Day narrowly missed out on the metropolitan festival of the year award, and by the looks of it, LSTD seems dead set on scooping up the award this year, with its 2018 instalment already shaping up as one of the season’s best.
Saturday night headline duties are set to be taken care of by the original funk soul brother, one of electronic music’s most important and influential artists- none other than Norman Cook aka Fatboy Slim. A day later, hot off scooping up the coveted Mercury Prize for his acclaimed debut album Process, is Sampha, who’ll be hosting an intimate headline set on Saturday night.
House Gospel Choir and David Rodigan also head up the main stages alongside Nightmares on Wax and George Fitzgerald, while Jackmaster, Andy C, Artwork and Shy FX all host their respective stages with support from the likes of Mall Grab, Camo & Krooked and Eva Lazarus. Elsewhere on the stacked, all-encompassing lineup for LSTD 2018, are an unmissable live set from Bicep, a sub-headliner slot from Loyle Carner, a homecoming show from My Nu Leng, and live outings from both Four Tet and Floating Points.
Love Saves The Day is famed for its open and easy-going nature and crowd. Good vibes and strong spirits are what’s made LSTD one of the festival season’s most important events, and as one of the year’s first festivals in the calendar, it really is an unmissable music event.
Love Saves The Day takes place on the 24th and 25th of May 2018, with tickets on sale now on the LSTD website.
