The festival was forced to relocate last year after troubles securing its longtime venue Victoria Park. Gunnersbury Park in West London became its new home and after a successful show last year, Lovebox is back for its second outing.  

The festival previously branded itself as a dance-based event but in recent years it has veered towards rnb and hip-hop and this year’s headline continue this change in direction. 

Queen of rnb Solange, who is fresh off the release of her latest album When I Get Home, and hip-hop favourite and rap star Chance The Rapper will headline this year's festival. 

Recent breakthroughs Loyle Carner and Brockhampton also set to take the stage at the festival this year, while UK rap singer Giggs will bring his fresh take to the masses. 

H.E.R. will be making a UK exclusive appearance at Lovebox this year, meaning that if you want to catch H.E.R. performing this summer, this is your only chance to do so. Meanwhile, festival favourite Annie Mac will be performing her DJ set this year, as will Ross From Friends

With the exception of the two headliners, Lovebox’s entire line-up is made of mostly British based artists. The festival is a great opportunity to support some homegrown talent and spot some upcoming stars on the rise. As a relatively small festival, it doesn’t draw in the big names that Reading and Leeds or Parklife do, so it’s a wonderful opportunity to discover some of the lesser-known talents that are on offer in the UK. 

Lovebox Festival takes place on the weekend of the 12th-13th July and tickets are on sale here.
