If you made it to Lovebox this year then you’re probably already planning to return to the festival in 2017. And if you missed it, then this time you need to make sure you’re fully prepared for what is now one of London’s most-loved music festivals.
What do you need to know?
The Bow Brook
The date is yet to be announced, but it will likely take place in July 2017.
Tickets aren’t yet available, but you can join Festicket’s waiting list, meaning you’ll be the first to hear when they’re being released.
What can you expect?
Lovebox has become well-known for its diverse lineups, with artists and acts ranging from indie through to house and techno. It’s a hugely popular event among East Londoners, who flock to the biggest park in this area of the city to enjoy the two-day festival.
Not only can you expect international artists, which in the past have included the likes of Major Lazer, Snoop Dogg and LCD Soundsystem, but there’s also a large amount of underground talent.
If this isn’t enough, you can also enjoy a whole host of other activities, such as a Bump Roller Disco, a vintage fair and even body painting.
Of course, if you’re travelling from outside of London for Lovebox festival, or even from the other side of the city, then you’ll need to make sure you have your accommodation booked well in advance.
