Lovebox 2017

at Victoria Park, London
Passed

This event has been and gone.

Lovebox has become one of London's best-loved music festivals, thanks to its diverse lineups and infectious energy. Sweeping from indie through to house and techno via all things urban, the festival brings its eclectic vibrancy to the capital's Victoria Park.

After an unmissable year at Victoria Park, Lovebox are thrilled to announce Frank Ocean as their Friday headliner for 2017 as a London festival exclusive.

Visionary artist Frank Ocean has earned his place as one of the most celebrated and critically acclaimed acts of this era.

Following four years of mystery since the release of his debut Channel Orange, Frank Ocean released one of the most anticipated albums ever in Endless via livestream earlier this year. One day later fans were gifted the phenomenal Blonde which features exceptional guest spots from the likes of Beyoncé, Kendrick Lamar, André 3000 and James Blake.

As they enter their fifteenth year, Lovebox has made a name for itself with lineups featuring taste making-headliners and need-to-know acts from Britain and around the world.

Frank Ocean is sure to lead the way of what will be an unforgettable roster, once again making London’s own Lovebox a defining moment of the festival season.

Saturday’s headliner comes in the form of one of the UK’s best live acts, and a Lovebox favourite. Chase & Status’ ferocious live sets are truly a sight to behold, whether they’re storming through classics from their 2008 debut More than Alot or the bestselling homage to 90s dance, Brand New Machine.

Among his more eclectic achievements as Jazzie B, he has been a regular on London radio since Kiss FM was a pirate, and also does a variety of voice-overs for radio and television. He has had a spell running Motown in the UK, designed a sneaker for the Lacoste Legends range and presented James Brown with the Diesel U Music Lifetime Achievement award – an honour the late Mr Brown would accept in person on the one condition that it was Jazzie who presented it to him!
