Like many dance events, Lovebox started life as a resident club night. After a sell-out, outdoor show in 2003, the potential for a new electronic event was realised. Groove Armada championed the growth of Lovebox into a massive festival that’s hosted events in both Dublin and Ibiza. It grew quickly, adapting to include a broad selection of genres from rock, to hip-hop, to indie, to grime. They’ve attracted a huge variety of big names and indie performers to play in previous years. Headliners have included the legend that is Snoop Dogg, as well as Rudimental, Plan B, Chase & Status, The Wombats, and many, many more.
Friday 15th will be headlined by Major Lazer – the electronic brainchild of producers Diplo and Switch. Support from Run the Jewels, Hannah Wants, Diplo himself, and a host of other names promises a day absolutely rammed with urban and electro tunes. Saturday 16th sees Grammy-nominated LCD Soundsystem headlining the main stage. Their recent reunion makes this a landmark appearance for the electro-rock band, as they debut a new studio album which is yet to be released. Support will be provided by Jungle, Jack Garratt, Luciano – you get the picture. Lovebox 2016 is utterly bursting with talent. Small wonder then that so many of the tickets are already sold out. There are some late release tickets still available from as little as £54.45 for the day. A weekend ticket can go for just £93.50.
Lovebox is hosted at Victoria Park in East London, which is, sadly, not a camping event. Situated within a 30-minute tube journey from the Megabus stop at St Pancras Station, however, it’s perfectly located if you’re looking to extend the festival experience. London’s nightlife is legendary, and as varied as the line-up of Lovebox itself. Take a trip to nearby Soho and experience the never-ending clubbing scene of the Capital.
