The Arcadia Afterburner will return once again to Bristol for an appearance at Love Saves the Day, in what will be the only appearance of the Arcadia Afterburner in the UK this year. 

What was once the original Arcadia installation, the Afterburner is a 360-degree stage built around a central flaming spire, with dance platforms radiating out to an outer ring of fire shooting posts. As well as being a staple at Glastonbury Festival, it has appeared at festivals as far afield as New Zealand, Croatia and the United States. Come May, the Afterburner is returning to its spiritual home and bringing the fire to Bristol’s Eastville Park.

On Saturday 27th May, the Arcadia Afterburner will feature extended sets from a spread of upcoming and acclaimed DJs alike. Hotly tipped SAORSIE will first take to the stage, before passing on to homegrown Bristol favourite Peverelist and fellow lynchpin of Bristol’s electronic music scene, Hodge. Closing the Saturday will be the illustrious Craig Richards, followed by the world-renowned Ricardo Villalobos. The prospect of seeing this pair play out from the Afterburner is a tantalising one, with both artists expected to delve deep into their record collections.

On Sunday 28th May, the Afterburner Stage kicks off the second day of the festival with a whole host of names from a broad cross section of D&B, Jungle and Grime. The Afterburner’s flames will be set alight by special guest Friction, rising London drum and bass producer Dimension, and DJ Hype going B2B with Hazard. Drum and bass legends D*Minds will also take to the stage, whilst the legendary Randall will go back-to-back with 4Hero for a special ‘reinforced set’. Bodynod will also be to hand with their Sunday takeover, with P Money, Marcus Nasty and Bristol’s very own Blazey Bodynod. MC’s GQ, Skibadee, AD, Jakes and Linguistics hosting the firey stage in true Love Saves The Day style.

After years filled with attending festivals and club nights, days spent trudging soundsystems through muddy fields and even more nights occupied on sweatbox dance floors, the ideas behind Love Saves The Day Festival finally got their first home as a one-day event in Castle Park back in 2012.
Fast-forward 6 years and the original experiences which spurred the festival’s beginning now have a story of their own, as Love Saves The Day aims to combine the best of Bristol’s thriving underground with pioneering artists from across the globe, showcasing a huge variety of different genres and musical styles in one amazing space.
