Love Saves The Day Festival will change location for 2022

Love Saves the Day will be held at the Ashton Court Estate in June 2022 to mark a “new chapter”.

The event will take place over the four-day Bank Holiday weekend in June 2022. The bank holiday has been added to the 2022 calendar year to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

On Instagram, the festival has stated that 2022’s event will be their “most ambitious yet”.

“Expect bigger lineups, increased production, even more stages, more work with local communities and everything in our hearts - because, Love Saves The Day.”

Ben Jackson, part of the team who runs Love Saves the day, said the decision had been made to move due to increased ticket demand and "growing ambition of who we'd like to book."

"It’s going to allow us to really expand the event in so many ways; bigger and more spectacular stages, bigger capacities and the biggest line-ups we’ve ever had, and we get the bonus of an extra-long bank holiday."

"The fact that the music and events industries have suffered so much over the past 18+ months has really made us think of ways that we can continue to support creatives and we endeavour to have that at the core of our mission and plans for the future. That being said we are also striving to really draw focus and attention to doing more within our local community and really championing all the amazing music that is coming out of Bristol."

The festival, which had been held in Eastville Park since 2015, relocated to Clifton Downs this year and drew around 60,000 people.
