Love Saves The Day, Bristol
An impressive first year.
We caught Jessie Ware on the main stage and were impressed. Her vocals had all the power and range that her records suggested and gave us a soulful musical backdrop to the miserable weather. Next was Annie Mac, who you can always rely on to get the party started and after her set the crowd dispersed into the rain with massive Cheshire cat grins.
Mr Scruff’s four hour set in the Jubilee Marquee provided a safe haven to dip in an out of when the rain got really bad. And anyone looking seriously bedraggled could pop to the Shambarber/Boodior tent for a sprucing and a sprinkling of glitter.
For a festival in its first year, LSTD held things together marvellously, although many punters complained about the length of time spent queuing to get in and for the toilets. Also (surprisingly) there really wasn’t enough booze to go around. However the organisers have recognised this in a statement and promise ‘these are all easily rectified’ for next year.
Take our word for it, next year Love Saves the Day is a festival MUST.
