LONDON, perhaps the most multicultural city in the world: a cutting-edge canvas for cool youth culture - a mélange of fresh exciting music and innovative fashion, film and art. In the summertime, the capital’s inherent artistic sensibility becomes ever more alive and apparent. Every young (and old) Londoner and affiliated Londoner loves a party, a festival, especially one which features a cameo from everyone’s favourite and most coveted headliner – the sun. Each year Victoria Park, the People’s Park, provides a happy home to LOVEBOX – one huge three day party which embraces, celebrates and exemplifies the very essence, spirit and diversity of our capital.
This year, Groove Armada’s Tom & Andy really excel themselves in their musical curation, succinctly catering for every cool cat in town – Bang the Box Friday sees French electronic Edbanger label showcasing SebAstian & Uffie, alongside dubstep darling Skream sharing stages with a dash of Ms Dyamite. Saturday’s zeitgeist-defining playlist of Ziggy Marley, Snoop and Warren G needs no introduction. The Drums and Lykke Li will also be padding the field, culminating in a raucous crescendo with Sunday’s stiletto-shaped sounds courtesy of Scissor Sisters, Blondie and Ms Ditto, Robyn, Kelis, Jodie Harsh & Horse Meat Disco.
Heart music and London soul? Cupid’s arrow is pointing you directly towards Lovebox.
