Love Saves the Day 28-29th May Review

‘This year’s Love Saves the Day was bigger and better than ever; a 5 year anniversary to be proud of! The sun shone, and for the weekend of the 28th and 29th of May, so did our city.

 

Local performers, promoters and punters joined together to celebrate all that’s great about music in 2016.

 

On Saturday the Dance off Stage partied hearty with grime up-and-comer Buggzy Malone, who firmly put ‘Manny on the Map’. Later in the ring, everyone’s favourite UKG legends Artful Dodger and DJ Luck and MC Neat had us 2-stepping till sundown. Alternatively, Berlin’s finest Roman Flugel and Ben Klock were on point hypnoting the masses at the Paradiso stage whilst Everything Everything and Hot Chip gave the Main Stage audience a night of dancing in the dark to remember.

 

Despite such a euphoric start to the weekend, little did we know the fun had only just begun; enter Bristol’s Hold Tight and Who Cares collectives.

 

The Arcadia Afterburner continued to spray fire throughout the day, personal highlights from the Who Cares takeover include Dismantle, Kahn, and later, Goldie ruling the dance.

 

Just a skank away, Hold Tight Records brought Europe’s finest Dubwise DJs to the Bruhaha stage. My oh my oh my! Manu Digital, Egoless and RSD; 3 of many highlights demonstrating a cross-border, dubbed out movement at this year’s Love Saves.

 

All this, and somehow, London stole the show! The grime on display on Sunday brought huge crowds each and every time; Giggs, Nadia Rose, Stormzy and Dizzee Rascal – say nutin’! Anyone who saw these guys cannot deny that grime is sweeping the masses into hysteria in 2016.

 

All that remains to say is a huge thank you to the organisers for yet again putting on the party of the year and a reminder to the Ujima Family to keep your eyes and ears open for exclusive interviews, images and recordings on 98fm, social media and ujimaradio.com.

Until next time,

Peace and Dub!
