The Summer Festival Guide brings you the latest news about Love Saves the Day which has for the third successive year set to sell out well in advance of the festival. Weekend tickets and Saturday tickets are now completely sold out a remarkable seven weeks in advance of the show and Sunday tickets are selling fast with the third tier tickets set to sell out imminently.
Sunday’s Love Saves The Day line up celebrates the very best in electronic and bass music culture with Team Love yet again bringing the globe’s most visionary sonic pioneers to Bristol’s Castle Park.
Sunday will see the mighty Sbtrkt headline the main stage at Love Saves The Day with one of his first live performances of the year playing a set of classic tracks and premiering new material. From his early dub-tinged club focused singles to the crossover success of his self-titled debut album, Sbtrkt has never been afraid to push musical boundaries and his eagerly anticipated album is due for release in 2014.
Preceding Sbtrkt will be one of the most respected names in music Jamie XX. Outside of his day job in Mercury Prize winning electronic indie outfit the XX, Jamie is a prolific producer and remixer. His signature combination of haunting melodies and low key club percussion provide the backbone for his work. Jamie has just premiered his new single Sleep Sound, which is set for release on 5th May, and his set will feature some exclusive new material.
Surely one of the most hyped and eagerly anticipated albums of 2014 already is forthcoming from Neneh Cherry with RocketNumberNine. Produced by man-of-the-moment FourTet, with guests such as Robyn featuring, it is Neneh’s first solo album in 17 years. Neneh also has a special affinity with Bristol, having been amongst the first to champion the ‘Wild Bunch’ who later became ‘Massive Attack’, lending them her studio many years ago that enabled the recording of the seminal ‘Blue Lines’. This is going to be a pretty special Bristol show for us all.
Love Saves The Day is delighted to welcome DJ, producer and Magnetic Fields head honcho Will Holland aka Quantic who makes a rare UK appearance with his new live show.
Despite the generations between them, dub stalwart Adrian Sherwood and dubstep veteran Pinch have teamed up to create an incredible clash of dub, reggae and modern electronic music. This will be the first live manifestation of their collaboration. Drum & bass legend Shy FX, bass boy of the moment Dismantle and another of Radio 1’s champions of dance music B. Traits will also perform highly anticipated sets. The legendary Greg Wilson will take to the decks at the UK’s finest electronic music festival with Gentleman’s Dub Club, Laid Blak, Special Request, A Sagittariun, Jus Now, Congo Natty and many others ensuring that festival goers enjoy the very best electronic sounds in the beautiful surrounds of Castle Park.
