Organisers have confirmed that the festival is back.
The roadmap out of lockdown has got people finally hyped for a summer that looks a lot better than the last. With the success of the vaccination programme and large-scale events able to resume from June 21 (pending the success of previous easing steps), it’s possible to feel properly optimistic for the first time in a while. Today, Love Saves The Day Festival added a little more excitement to the upcoming summer with the announcement that they’ll be going ahead come September.
Love Saves The Day began in Castle Park and has taken place in Eastville Park for the last few years but the team announced today that it will be going ahead at a new location this year. The festival organisers haven’t revealed the location and line-up as of yet but tickets are going on sale on their website for the event from March 4.
Large-scale events are in line to begin in Step 4 of the roadmap, which could start as early as June 21. Meanwhile, a pilot study of large events with mass testing was revealed to be part of Step 3 measures (beginning no earlier than May 17), which could provide clarity for late summer festivals to resume. With the festival set to take place on the weekend of September 4 & 5, Love Saves The Day are well positioned to take advantage of the news, and provide us with a long-overdue chance to head to the festivals.
In a statement, organisers said: “We are working hard behind the scenes to secure a brand new musical lineup from the UK’s most exciting talent which we cannot wait to announce. We also will have a brand new location to share with you very soon indeed.
“We’d also like to take this opportunity to once again thank everyone who has held onto their tickets – your support has really meant the world to us in these stressful times. We can’t wait to be with you in the fields this summer.”
