For our last dance at Eastville Park, we wanted to make sure we gave our beloved site the send-off it deserves. That’s why we invited back our favourite stage partners – and a few new faces, too – to curate and host the party throughout the park.
For the last dance at Eastville Park, Love Saves The Day are proud to present a host of legends on our Main Stage. From dance music pioneers Orbital to Kano – one of the kings of grime – our headliners are trailblazers of their genre. Across the May Bank Holiday weekend, they’ll be joined by fan favourites from line-ups past like DJ EZ, Little Simz, Gorgon City and My Nu Leng as well as appearances from Ghetts, Krept & Konan, Young T & Bugsey and more.
Catch & Release
The release of ‘Losing It’ brought FISHER worldwide fame and DJ stardom including slots at Coachella, a Grammy nomination and over 150 million Spotify plays. Next, the eccentric Australian brings his label party – Catch & Release – to Eastville Park. For Love Saves The Day, the label’s infectious energy will be matched as Bristol selector Bill, techno aficionado Afrodeutsche, Defected affiliate Monki, Folamour – the French prince of disco – and stalwart producer Skream join the man himself. Will you be following the fish to Centre Stage?
