Fat Boy Slim, real name Norman Cook, is one of the UK’s most celebrated DJs. Graduating from playing bass with Hull-based indie rock band The Housemartins in the 80s, he became an integral player in the country’s electronic scene, pioneering the genre of big beat. Hits include ‘Praise You’ and ‘Right Here, Right Now’
He will be joined at Ashton Court in May by Years & Years, the Brit Award-nominated project of singer Olly Alexander. Originally a band, the first album Communion (2015) was the fastest-selling debut of the year and, since then, the artist has gone from strength to strength thanks to a blend of pop, R&B and house.
Also coming from the world of R&B is Kelis who first appeared on the scene in the late 90s thanks to several well-received singles, a fierce look and features with the likes of ODB and Busta Rhymes. However, it was 2004’s ‘Milkshake’ that saw Kelis nominated for a Grammy with the song becoming a true worldwide sensation to this day.
The incredible lineup does not stop there either with DnB icon Andy C, French house producer Folamour, experimental electronic pioneer Four Tet, DIY jungle producer Nia Archives, London’s Shy FX and Bristol’s very own Eats Everything all featuring.
With such a stellar programme of acts planned for Love Saves The Day 2023, we’ll all be crossing our fingers hoping that the sun is shining over Ashton Court Estate on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 May.
