A few weekends back, Jordan (Head Designer) and I made the short journey from London to Bristol for Love Saves the Day festival. Now in its fourth year, and a reputation building as one of the best festivals in the West, the decision was made to move from its original location of Castle Park in the centre of Bristol to Eastville Park in the north of the city. Initially, I was sceptical that the move - and subsequent increase in capacity - would effect the overall feel of the festival, but fortunately this wasn't the case, with the vibe remaining just as positive as I'd remembered from when I first went back in 2013.
Despite being still a relatively new festival the undeniably impressive line-up was jam packed with some of the biggest names in electronic music. For the most part, house and techno dominated Saturday's proceedings with the likes of Julio Bashmore, Jackmaster, Gorgon City, Hannah Wants and Craig Richards all playing headline sets. Whereas on the Sunday, the sound shifted towards the bassier end of the spectrum with grime, garage, drum & bass and dancehall giving the festival sound systems a run for their money. Highlights for us came from Kelela, Skepta, DJ EZ and My Nu Leng who all brought their top festival game for the hyped crowd that came out to see them.
With another year down, it's safe to say that Love Saves the Day stays winning. Whether you're a house head or a grime guru, there's always a crazy amount of choice to guarantee you're running from one stage to another in an attempt to catch as many acts as possible. Roll on next year!
In addition to the street style shots we captured throughout the weekend, we also managed to snap a number of artists, DJs and general happenings around the festival to give you an idea of what went down. Enjoy these below.
