Lovebox London Weekender
The Lovebox is an annual two-day event held on the weekends. It is the brainchild of Tom and Andy also known as Groove Armada who conceptualized the unique festival in 2002. It was then held at Clapham Common as a one-day event, which has now shifted to Victoria Park. It is now also held at many other UK locations and Ibiza throughout the year.
The fest brings together fresh sounds from different styles such as house music, the tech-savvy broken beat, which are primarily dancing centred, distributed in seven stages. Funk, soul, reggae, indie and pop acts have also been added to the musical extravaganza. Feet-stamping audience can set themselves free in the easygoing atmosphere with all the attributes of a festival, complete with a variety of food options. Although camping is discouraged, there are big dance tents and cabaret arenas in the park. Side attractions which make sure to accommodate people of all tastes include workshops on Yoga or Tai Chi, a flying circus and other captivating alternatives.
Past show rockers have included the likes of Roots Manuva, DJ Marky, The Young Knives and the Grove Armada themselves. For the more adventurous and the deviant, are the shows extending from the melodious to the bizarre, like the Horsemeat Disco, transforming a section of Victoria Park into a no-holds barred fetish party.
There are no parking facilities, in order to encourage the usage of public transport.
