Thousands of people will be descending on Eastville Park in Bristol this weekend, as the Love Saves the Day festival gets underway.

The festival will run from 11am until 11pm on Saturday and Sunday, and 15,000 people are expected.

There will be six main stages of music alongside smaller venues.

Headliners include Jessie Ware, Azealia Banks, Groove Armada and Roni Size Reprazent.

New venue for Bristol's Love Saves the Day festival

Organisers of Bristol's Love Saves the Day have chosen Eastville Park as their preferred venue for this year's festival in May.

The festival has been at Castle Park since 2012, but organisers say the event has grown too big for its current home. Last year 12,000 tickets were sold each day for the two-day event.

The Premises License application has been submitted to Bristol City Council today, but organisers have been consulting with various Council departments and local residents organisations for some months.

Now that an application has been submitted, locals have 28 days to give any feedback.
