Lovebox 2019 is shaping up to be another outstanding edition. The London festival returns to Gunnersbury Park from 12 – 13 July.
The headliners have been announced for this year’s Lovebox 2019 line-up. Solange will appear on the Friday night, with Chance The Rapper topping the bill on the Saturday.
Other announced acts include Four Tet, Brockhampton making their UK exclusive appearance, Loyle Carner, H.E.R., and Action Bronson, with many more revealed to perform across the two days.
Lovebox will also be teaming up with i-D, Noisey, Fact, Places+faces, Highsnobiety and Pxssy Palace across the two days.
Back in 2002, Groove Armada and Jools Butterfield were sitting in a pub, lamenting the London party scene. They were playing gigs and clubs everywhere, but thought there might be a way to put on a different kind of show in London, with more exciting line-ups.
It started with a box of records and a pack of Post-its – heart-shaped ones were the only type to hand. The record box became the "Lovebox", which became an album, and then the first party was thrown in an old strip club off Tottenham Court Road. Then followed a residency at 93 Feet East, succeeded by a stint in Ladbroke Grove, and Lovebox was selling out two weeks in advance with hundreds turning up at the door.
A year later, this success led to a one-festival on Clapham Common for 10,000 people. The year after, it was 20,000. A combination of solid musical reputation and a complete lack of inner London park festivals proved a potent recipe. By 2005 Lovebox moved to Victoria Park, and the line-ups were epic and the event had spread itself over two days.
In 2018 it was announced the festival was moving to Gunnersbury Park.
Lovebox tickets 2019 are available now.
