Share This Article:
Lovebox returns for its sixteenth year bringing the best from old school hip-hop, grime and electronica to new turf: London's Gunnersbury Park. The festival is a two day event, this year running from Friday 13th – Saturday 14th July. Lovebox will kick off on Friday 13th July with musical legends Wu Tang Clan, Skepta and Anderson Paak, along with rising stars Mabel, Jacob Banks and Dave. Saturday 14th July will see Childish Gambino, Mura Masa and The Internet play to the packed out park, hopefully under the heat of the mid-Summer sun. With Lovebox shining light on the ever evolving hip-hop and grime scene, the further attention to electro and DJ acts is impeccable: Annie Mac, Diplo, Camelphat, Green Velvet, Jon Hopkins and Solarado round out the festival to suit all. They have created the ultimate urban space. If karaoke is your thing, Saturday also sees fan favourite Hip-Hop Karaoke hosted by DJ Rob Pursey and Bobby Champagne Jr. take to the stage, helping thousands of festival-goers sing along in harmony to their favourite tracks - from 80s and 90s old school gems to your new favourite record released last week. Sharp's Secret Bar will be holding secret beer tasting sessions throughout the festival, while Kopparberg's Outsider stage makes a return offering a no-barrier experience between artists and fans. Last but not least, if you've got the lovebug at Lovebox, The Chapel of Love(box) lets you dress up, take a trip down the aisle and 'marry' your best friend, boyfriend or that girl you just met outside the portaloos. Pay a quick visit to the confession booth - the best, most wildest stories win a prize. Lovebox runs 13th July - 14th July. Tickets are available here.
