The History of the Lovebox Weekender Festival
Seven years old, Lovebox has become a must do event on the bristling summer social calender. Held annually on London’s oldest public park bordering Bethnal Green, Hackney, and Bow, London’s most creative and socially dynamic quarters, Lovebox as a festival, urban event or “happening” is without comparison.
Music has always been at the heart of Lovebox; with all the rock & roll chaos and glamour of supercharged sets, epic performances with dramatic backdrops, and chuggy jams under the trees from bands and DJs spanning the genres.
The first show saw Groove Armada, The Blackbyrds, Norman Jay and Richie Havens play the same live stage while Mr Scruff, Joey Negro, Gilles Peterson and Movement amongst others fired up 3 different dance music arenas.
Since then the attendance has more than trippled and in the size of the site, this year (2010) 50,000 people are expected to attend. The result is that anyone coming to Lovebox can traverse their way across an incredible musical landscape hand picked by a bunch of real fanatics turning each other on to new and old bands, DJs and musical styles, be it folk, hip hop, indie, disco-punk, rock, world or electronic music. It’s very much a case of the whole being “greater than the sum of the parts.
