The obvious draw-in is the live performance from the brilliantly eclectic multi instrumentalist, Bonobo.
Having gained worldwide recognition for his unique and untarnished approach to production, Bonobo is a revered name on the World-wide dance music circuit and if his latest release ‘Cirrus’ is anything to go by, the upcoming album “The North Borders” could be one of the albums of the year.
Seth Troxler is defined by the consistently brilliant and beautifully unpredictable approach to his sets. This Detroit house inspired dynamo and co-founder of Visionquest was rated as the world’s best DJ in Resident Advisor’s 2012 DJ poll.
One of the dance music success stories of 2012 was peerless clan Rudimental who took the nation by storm with their number one single ‘Feel The Love’. Their highly anticipated debut album is due for release in 2013. Rudimental will be performing live for what promises to be a storm of a show.
Our favourite London based R&B renaissance duo AlunaGeorge are the name on everyone’s lips this year. Having been together for barely a year, this talented duo’s infectious mixes are immersed in sweet harmonies and electronic charm. Nominated for both the BBC Sounds of 2013 and the Brits Critics Choice award, their much-anticipated live performance at Love Saves The Day will be un-missable as will technicolor collective Crazy P who have been leaving their mark on the landscape of British dance music for the last 15 years.
Bristol resident Eats Everything has gained international recognition for his signature brand of bass heavy house, doused in techy cut ups and soulful harmonies whilst Joy Orbison has been a key figure on the circuit since his seminal track Hyph Mngo blew up in 2009 and the prolific producer has since released a series of deservingly hyped tracks including his infamous collaborations with Boddika.
Jackmaster is an integral part of the BBC’s new DJ roster and the Numbers founder continues to pave the way in UK bass movement. Expect a sharp track set, featuring everything from Detroit house and 90’s dance classics to disco anthems and garage. Meanwhile Monki, another of Radio One’s ‘In New DJ’s We Trust’ promises to show us that the ladies are doing it for us – just as much as the new wave of males.
As with last year, Love Saves The Day promises to be the place to see acts before they blow up into the main stream. Hoping to follow acts such as Disclosure and Jessie Ware,who graced the festival in 2012, are the much-hyped Bicep, Bondax, Dusky, Roses Gabor and The Other Tribe. Watch this space.
Mr Scruff is the legendary DJ, cartoonist, producer and tea drinker. His much revered DJ sets take in Soul, Funk, Hip Hop, Jazz, Reggae, Dubstep, Latin, African, Ska, Disco, House, Funk, Breaks, Soundtracks & lots more and his set will be an undoubted festival high.
The man like Shy FX also leads in his heralded Digital Soundboy crew to the festival for the first time. Riding high after his recent re-edit of ‘Gold Dust’ received huge radio play, Shy is joined by both Breakage and Dismantle, a
s well as some yet unannounced guests.
Also confirmed for Love Saves The Day are Âme, Deetron, Maxxi Soundsystem, Mickey Pearce, Outboxx, Paleman, Dubious and A.Quake, Feel The Real, Tom Rio and Dan Wild, Waifs and Strays, Futureboogie DJs, Jus Now and Christophe & Lukas.
Love Saves The Day partners with some of Bristol’s finest clubbing institutions including Just Jack, The Dance Off Crew, Shapes, Apex and Futureboogie.
