Preview: Lovebox 2010

By on Thursday, 13th May 2010 at 12:00 pm

Lovebox Festival, serving Londoners tasty musical goodness since 2002. A TGTF favourite, the epic city event was started a whopping seven years back by Groove Armada and has grown in size, and well, awesomeness ever since.

Held in Victoria Park, and taking place across Friday 16th to Sunday 18th of July, the jam packed three day event is showcasing yet another almighty selection of bands to follow on from last years Duran Duran, Doves, N.E.R.D and the Armada themselves.

Headlining the Main Stage on Friday is crowd pleaser Dizzee Rascal. Saturday, meanwhile, boasts the legendary Roxy Music and finally Sunday offers us the goddess that is Grace Jones.

Featuring alongside Dizzee on the 16th include Chase & Status, Noisettes, Ellie Goulding, The Maccabees, Mystery Jets and Chew Lips. Saturday will see Mark Ronson, Paloma Faith, Wild Beasts, Codeine Velvet Club, I Blame Coco, Empire of the Sun, Yeosayer and These New Puritans making an appearance alongside the ‘Love is the Drug’ legends. Meanwhile taking to the stages pre Ms. Jones include Hot Chip, Peaches, Hurts, New Young Pony Club and Silver Columns.

Lovebox also has a number of stages dedicated to dance and DJ acts, ala the ‘Relentless’ arena, where you can catch the likes of Crookers, Booka Shade and DJ Oliver M.

Tickets for the event are pretty darn cheap (£45/£80/£99) and you can choose whether you want a day, two day or three day pass. Learn more about this eclectic bundle of music fun over on their website now.
