Bristol Festival ‘Love Saves The Day’ has announced that it will be changing its location for next year’s edition. The 2022 festival, which will take place on June 2 and 3 will mark its tenth-anniversary edition and the first at their new site Ashton Court Estate, an 860-acre site located just ten minutes from the city centre of Bristol.
This time it will also make use of a new Bank Holiday on June 3, introduced to mark Queen Elizabeth II’s platinum jubilee. This year’s edition took place at a postponed later date last month at Clifton Downs, envisaged as a one-off location. Before that, since 2015 it had been held at Eastville Park and first took place at Castle Park in 2012.
In a video shared on their social media showing off their new grounds, the festival runners made an announcement “2022 will be our most ambitious event to date, expect bigger lineups, increased production, even more stages, more work with local communities and everything in our hearts – because Love Saves The Day.”

Ben Jackson part of the team who runs Love Saves the day added in an interview with Mixmag: “It’s going to allow us to really expand the event in so many ways; bigger and more spectacular stages, bigger capacities and the biggest line-ups we’ve ever had, and we get the bonus of an extra-long bank holiday.”
“The fact that the music and events industries have suffered so much over the past 18+ months has really made us think of ways that we can continue to support creatives and we endeavour to have that at the core of our mission and plans for the future.”
He then continued “That being said we are also striving to really draw focus and attention to doing more within our local community and really championing all the amazing music that is coming out of Bristol.”
This year’s edition of Love Saves The Day took place on September 4 and 5, and saw performances from acts such as Slowthai, Little Simz, Shy FX, Ben UFO, Honey Dijon, Hybrid Minds and Mella Dee and more to a crowd of 60,000.
