After months of keeping it secret, ‘Love Saves The Day’ have announced they plan to hold the 2-day event (Saturday May 23rd and Sunday May 24th) in Eastville Park.

The event has been held at Castle Park for the past couple of years but the people behind ‘Love Saves The Day’ say they festival has outgrown the central venue.
The move comes as ‘Love Saves The Day’ promises fans even more festival for their money as director Tom Paine said, ‘We want to add new venues and develop the non-musical elements of the festival, and whilst this requires a larger space, our emphasis is very much on making the event better, in every single way, instead of just bigger.’
The Premises License Application was submitted to Bristol City Council just today and now local residents have 28 days to give their feedback. After this there will be a hearing to address any issues.
But the ‘Love Saves The Day’ organisers have been consulting with local resident organisations and various Council departments for months – and the festival say their plans for maintaining the park, noise control and waste and traffic management are solid.
‘We already have an excellent track record where noise is concerned,’ said Tom. ‘Our noise complaints are in single figures every year. We’ll have a hotline in operation throughout the event for our neighbours to talk to us about noise, or any other concerns they may have.’
‘It rained heavily on Castle Park last year so we’re well versed in the impact that has on the ground. There was temporary damage to the ground in 2014 but we repaired that damage, and reinstated the park quickly, at our own cost.’
‘Obviously, we’re hoping for a beautiful, sunny weekend but if the rain shows up, we’re fully prepared!’
Tom Paine promises big things for this years LSTD, ‘the move to Eastville Park will mark the beginning of a new era for the festival.’
‘We’re upping our game with a new home and a bigger, better festival. 2015 is going to be a momentous year for Love Saves The Day.’
The festival has seen big names like Annie Mac, Eats Everything, Eton Messy, Jessie Ware and more grace their stages with tickets selling out two months in advance.
The line up for 2015 will be released in February, so keep an eye on the website and Twitter to see who’ll be playing.
