Originally organised by electronic music mainstays Groove Armada, Lovebox Festival has been a key summer music event since its inception in 2003. A no-camping event held in East London’s Victoria Park, Lovebox attracts the biggest names in the dance, hip hop and grime scene. 2016 saw Stormzy, Major Lazer and LCD Soundsystem gracing the main stage and making it one of the most successful Lovebox events yet. Known for its countryside feel within an urban setting, there’s plenty more to enjoy besides the great line-up: go back to the ‘80s by taking a spin around the roller disco or get some therapy in the healing area.
Lovebox is a daytime/evening event opening from 12pm to 10.45pm on Friday 14th July and Saturday 15th July. The festival is held in Victoria Park in London’s East End, with the nearest tube stations being Bow Road, Mile End, Stratford and Bethnal Green. Alternatively, you can take the DLR to Bow Church or the overground train to Hackney Wick or Bethnal Green. Check out the TFL website for a detailed journey planner. Early bird tickets are now available here and we’d advise getting them as soon as you can as the event is likely to sell out. Friday tickets are £50.75, Saturday tickets are £50.75 and you can get a full weekend ticket for £83.75.
Lovebox always has a great line-up and so good music all day long is guaranteed. Due to Victoria Park being such a central location, however, the music has to stop at 10.45pm. This doesn’t mean an end to your partying, though, as Lovebox organises after parties across East London, meaning you can carry on dancing until 5am. Previous ‘After Dark’ parties have featured top names including Scuba, Soul Clap and Modeselektor at clubs such as The Laundry in London Fields, Oval Space in Bethnal Green and Village Underground in Shoreditch. Keep an eye on the official website for more details of the 2017 After Dark events.
