Love Saves The Day took over Eastville Park for an eighth time this year, bringing a diverse range of music to Bristol. Some welcome Saturday sunshine saw temperatures soar as South London producer Ross From Friends brought his set to life with live instrumentation having recently signed to Flying Lotus imprint Brainfeeder. The Paradiso stage continue to serve up Province favourites in the form of Flohio, Kojey Radical and Slowthai, who’s unrivalled energy set the stage for headliner Little Simz, who took the stage megaphone-in-hand to deliver a flawless festival performance.
As with day one, day two saw Bristol’s beloved Teachings In Dub stage and Channel One Soundsystem in full effect, before highlights Mella Dee, Peggy Gou and Bonobo rounded out proceedings to conclude a fantastic weekend of music.
2019 feels like the year that Love Saves The Day established itself as one of the UK’s best-loved small festivals. It’s feel good aesthetic feels akin to what Bestival once was, and with the aforementioned beginning to stall having moved to a new home, perhaps 2020 will be the year it steals it’s crown.
