Love Box-The Diverse Music Festival
Are you looking for a place to sway your hips, bang your head, and shake your booty altogether?
Are you looking for a place to sway your hips, bang your head, and shake your booty altogether? Smashing the boundaries between genres such as hip hop, rock, grime, pop, indie, house, and techno, Love Box music festival is a two-day music event of grand, diverse proportions.
Aside from their genre-blurring line-ups, Love Box music festival brings you unique fun in all shapes and sizes. It includes, but not limited to; circus performances, art installations, themed bars, a roller disco, a bowling alley, walkabout acts, body painting, and funky after parties galore!
Being one of London’s finest and most exuberant festivals, it is usually in the beautiful Victoria Park in Tower Hamlets, London.
However, in 2018 Lovebox festival moved to a new home at Gunnersbury Park. Although the festival is located in the city, it still manages to encompass that out-in-the-country vibe (except it’s much cleaner than camping).
While hosting a lovely variety of attendees from all over the world, Lovebox manages to embody as much fun as a three-day festival into just two. With several different stages, the fun is jam-packed;
Some headliners from the past have been: Snoop Dogg, Lana Del Rey, Duran Duran, Groove Armada, Rudimental, and LCD Soundsystem. In 2017 the headliner was Frank Ocean! Cheers!
The first lineup phase for 2020 is out, and there is one massive headliner on the 14th: Tyler, The Creator. There are some other top acts such as Anderson .Paak & the Free Nationals and Charlie XCX. Have a peak:
Chance the Rapper and Solange were the leading headliners in 2019. See the full list below:
In 2018 Childish Gambino and Skepta are just some of the names you can find in the past 2018 lineup.
LoveBox caters to all party animals, hip-hoppers, dub-steppers, hard-rockers, booty-shakers, and bass-droppers alike. It has consistently been one of London’s favorite music festivals.
The moral of the story is to join in on the creative, unique, and ever-growing weirdness that is Lovebox and have a time you will not soon forget.
While it might seem obvious, many people get so carried away with festival shenanigans that they forget to drink water. A good idea is to get a Camelback type backpack and keep it full of water so you can hydrate as you’re rampaging about.
Due to the hot sun and groovy dance moves, you will sweat – a lot. For that, electrolytes are your friend! It is recommended to bring some coconut water or even electrolyte packets to put in your water.
The balance of fun and responsibility is another key to life. Getting a festival map and sitting with your friends before the festivities begin to plan out and agree upon who to see, where to go, and when to go is very important and surprisingly overlooked. Also, getting to a stage before the musician/s come on is a great idea; these events get crowded, and you may want to see a little more than Lego-sized band members.
Not to mention, they are highly useful. Rather than trying to dance around with a purse strapped over your shoulder, cash flying out of your pockets, or being worried about someone sneaking into your backpack, having all of your stuff comfortably (and fashionably) within eyesight is a fanny-pack-tastic idea.
London is the most visited city in all of Europe; there is a good reason for that. There are loads of awe-inspiring sights to see while you are visiting.
For example, the artistic type of person might enjoy the West End Theater District, while the history buffs might enjoy either the British Museum or the Tower of London, the adventurous/romantic types might enjoy a ride on London’s Eye (or the giant ferris wheel you may have seen in pictures), and the high-energy type of person may enjoy the city’s plethora of nightclubs, such as The Roof Gardens, and so on.
London is one of the most diverse cities in the world, and with its rich history, culture, and exciting nightlife, there is something for every type of person to enjoy (yes, even you).
Although there is no camping at the Love Box music festival,Luckily for you, Lovebox takes place in the middle of a large, hospitable city with many choices of places to stay.

If you are traveling alone or on a budget, there are also dorm beds in hostels, like Via Limehouse, for only $15 per night for a dorm bed.

London is a very exciting place to be if you are a foodie, or just simply human.
If you are looking for a well-priced meal and perhaps an exotic burger, the Greedy Cow is a local favorite in the Tower Hamlets area.
If you get the munchies while you are at the festival itself, or looking for something yummy to smash on a friends face, The Hummingbird Bakery and their delicious cupcakes are highly praised.

Way back in 2002, Groove Armada and Jools were scratching their heads over the city’s below par music scene. Considering their pre-existing musical reputation and their desire to see a more lively London… they created Lovebox.
Now, it didn’t start off as a huge festival filling the entirety of Victoria Park, their project originally began as a much smaller party in an old strip club. A year later, they were throwing their first-ever outdoor party (which was a great success). From there, their movement sprang into popularity; they were nailing it!
Climbing the ladder and supplying the demand, they would grow larger and larger each year, selling out of tickets sooner and sooner. Just 3 years later, in 2005, Lovebox opened up in Victoria Park as a two-day festival, the festival we all now know and love; and they have been watching it thrive ever sense.
