Love Saves the Day is fast becoming an annual peak on the Bristol music calendar. With tickets already on sale, today’s announcement of the first wave of artists is only set to see them sell out even faster, and it’s not hard to see why. Here is a small selection of some of the highlights to look forward to from across the weekend.
UK songstress, Jessie Ware, heads up the first day. Off the back of the release of her sophomore album Tough Love last October, Ware looks set to be a popular choice to close off the Main Stage on Saturday. With enough dance music prestige and mainstream appeal, she will surely deliver to the packed out crowd of Bristol revelers.
2015 will see the return of Ware collaborator and Bristol’s prodigal son of House, Julio Bashmore. Remaining fairly quiet over the past couple of years, he has teased just enough solo and collaborative work to keep fans ticking over. 2015 seems set for Bashmore to make a return to glory and what could be better than playing your home crowd?
Eastville park will be graced with the groove induced House of German duo Session Victim. With a solid latest release on Delusions of Grandeur, they will undoubtedly bring some Berlin spirit to Bristol. Put them on at sunset and the rest will just fall into place.
Birmingham girl, Hannah Wants has had a meteoric rise to fame over the past couple of years. Bagging herself a spot on the Radio 1 Residency line-up her popularity seems ever increasing. Surely set to be a crowd favourite.
Outspoken Twitter ice-queen Azealia Banks headlines Sunday. With the release of her debut album Broke with Expensive Taste, she has proved herself to be far more than ‘212’. With her tongue twisting rhymes and hybrid of dance and hip-hop, she’s guaranteed to put on a good show to finish the weekend.
Ghost Culture have risen to prominence seemingly out of nowhere over the last year. The synth-heavy 80’s tinged electro they are pushing sounds refreshingly unique. Something a little different and definitely one to check out this year.
Rising Bristol star Hodge will be bringing his bass heavy sound to his home city on Sunday. After the sun has set and the night begins, Hodge’s devastating Techno will undoubtedly bring in the people.
Pioneer and certified legend Grandmaster Flash will be schooling Eastville Park with a history lesson in Hip-Hop. With over 40 years in the game, he is certainly no stranger to knowing how to make a crowd move. Prepare to be educated.
Check out the rest of the announced line-up, you will not be disappointed. With more acts to be announced and tickets already on third release, it's going to sell out fast. This looks set to be a highlight of the year.
