A little bit of news from Bristol’s biggest electronic festival offers some reassurance that, although the festival season has reached a bit of a slump, there is plenty to look forward to in 2018.
Love Saves the Day have released their first lineup announcement for the event next May, with DJ/producer Fatboy Slim headlining Saturday’s Main Stage, while South London’s favourite soul artisit Sampha will top the roster on Sunday, having recently won the Mecury prize for his debut album, Process.
The announcement comes after news that next year, instead of Saturday and Sunday being separated by their musical offerings, both days will offer the full range of genres from house, disco and techno, to drum and bass, grime, dubstep, reggae and every offshoot. So no need to fret if you can’t make the Sunday, but live for brain rattling bass; or if groove is in your heart, but you can’t make Saturday. There should be plenty to your taste across Saturday and Sunday.
The two-day festival have also announced the stage partners for what will be their seventh outing – Saturday stages are hosted by some familiar faces including The Blast, Numbers presents Mastermix, Crack Magazine, Futureboogie and Horse Meat Disco, whilst Sunday sees RUN, Knee Deep In Sound, Percolate, Hold Tight and Artwork Presents Art’s House.
