Love Saves The Day will take place at Eastville Park for the last time ever in 2020.
The Bristol music festival has been held at the venue for the past five years, having taken place at Castle Park for three years prior to that.
Organisers have brought some massive acts to Eastville Park including Jessie Ware, Bonobo, Skepta, Stormzy and Lily Allen, who headlined this year’s blowout.
As well as constantly improving the musical offering they have also ramped up the production of the event, adding impressive new stages and working on the sound levels.
When asked by Bristol Live if a new home is lined up for 2021 a festival spokesperson said: “We have no comment on that for now.”
The announcement was shared on LSTD’s social media channels and revellers have expressed sadness at the news, with some seemingly thinking it means the end of the festival.
The statement in full:
Love Saves The Day 2020 will be our final year at Eastville Park.
After 5 triumphant years of Love Saves The Day in Eastville Park, the time has finally come for one last dance in our much-loved home.
Since our inaugural event in Eastville back in 2015, Love Saves The Day has evolved across so many fronts, with 2019 culminating in spectacular fashion as our fastest selling event on record.
We’ve been joined by the likes of Lily Allen, Stormzy, Fatboy Slim, Dizzee Rascal, Four Tet, Jessie Ware, Fat Freddy’s Drop, Skepta, Bonobo, Andy C & so many more ground-breaking artists from both mainstream leanings and a broad underground spectrum. The arrival of The Centre Stage and Lonely Hearts Club have spearheaded the development of increasingly ambitious stage productions, whilst keeping one-eye on the small touches and non-musical entertainment that has become part of the fabric of Love Saves The Day. We’ve also launched a number of initiatives; helping to ensure the event has remained as sustainable, inclusive and socially responsible as possible.
So, we invite you to join us. For one final leap into Eastville Park, for one last hurrah, for one final send off. Come and help us write the final paragraph, for this chapter anyway…
The final ever Love Saves The Day at Eastville Park takes place on Saturday, May 23 and Sunday, May 24 2020.
Tickets go on sale on Thursday, October 3 at 10am More information can be found on Love Saves The Day’s website.
