With a list of huge artists playing this weekend at Lovebox in Hackney's Victoria Park, the heatwave couldn't have come at a better time. This year has been slimmed down from three to just two days, but no costs have been spared with the amazing line-up, that makes sure Lovebox is still one of the highlights of London summer.
Who's playing? Headliners for the weekend are the British drum'n'bass duo Chase & Status, the charming M.I.A and the old school American classic, Nas. A massive mix of genres from remix boy wonder Cyril Hahn; to the infamous DJ EZ; to a more recent but impressive American hip hop artist, Joey Bada$$; to the chilled out sounds of Bonobo. Despite starting out as a predominantly dance festival, Lovebox has since expanded to include a wide variety of musical genres which makes this festival perfect for so many types of people, ages and interests. Check out the poster below for more info on who's playing.
THE FOOD. It looks amazing. First of all, Smokey Tails will be there (a pop up restaurant in East London) and their food is the nuts. Pulled pork burgers, mac n cheese, chicken quarters, innovative salads & much more... Check out the facebook for mouth-watering images, you'll want to try this. For Dessert? Crosstown Doughnuts has my vote.
Another reason why Lovebox has done so well for itself is it's constantly up to date, interesting and what people want.
