Love Saves The Day have announced Fatboy Slim and Sampha as the headliners for the 2018 event held at Eastville Park in Bristol from 26th – 27th May. Tickets on sale now.
Following a residency in Ibiza this summer, Fatboy Slim will make his long-awaited return to Bristol on Saturday 26th May. Sampha will also be headlining Love Saves The Day 2018 on Sunday 27th May.
Over the last 20 years, Fatboy Slim has helped shape the dance and electronic genre – he makes his Love Saves The Day’s debut on the festival’s main stage, nearly 5 years after his last Bristol show.
Sampha’s distinctive, soulful voice has appeared on songs by the biggest names in US hip-hop and R&B including Beyoncé, Drake, Solange and Kanye West. This year he won a Mercury Prize with his debut album Process, solidifying his position at the fore of his field.
In previous years, Love Saves The Day Saturday has been more house and techno leaning, with day two of the event putting the emphasis on a more bass, dub and grime sound.
In 2018, brand new stages will be showcasing a diverse range of genres and music styles throughout the weekend, as Love Saves the Day continues with its aims to combine the best of Bristol’s thriving underground scene with pioneering artists across the globe, in one buzzing, unified space.
More acts coming soon. Tickets for Love Saves The Day 2018 on sale now.
