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.
“You can’t beat London as the hippest place on the planet, the Lovebox Weekender is proof of that” Gilles Peterson
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.
