As one of Everything Everything’s more mature fans, I went far out of my comfort zone and braved Bristol dance music festival ‘Love Saves The Day’ in order to catch the band’s hour-long slot, just before the Saturday headliners Hot Chip! It was well worth it though as I got a great spot on the barrier in front of Alex and had a fantastic time enjoying EE’s first festival set of the year. As appropriate for a festival that mostly featured up-tempo electronic dance music and DJ sets, the band’s set featured their most energetic and sing-along tunes. Blast Doors was the perfect opening song, grabbing the crowd’s attention and setting the tone for what was to follow. Energy levels were kept high with songs including Kemosabe, MY KZ, YR BF, Get To Heaven, Spring/Sun/Winter/Dread, Regret and Don’t Try. The crowd were really enthusiastic and enjoyed dancing and singing along. No Reptiles went down really well, as it always does, and they finished with the ideal festival set closer, Distant Past!
I took a few photos which I’ve posted in an album on the ATB Facebook page but here are a few of my favourites:
