Festival season has now well and truly begun, and no music-lover's calender can be complete without East London's finest festival, Lovebox.
The brainchild of Groove Armanda's Andy Cato and Tom Findlay, Lovebox spans over three days in Victoria Park and is their biggest and most adventurous venture to date.
Now in it's seventh year, Lovebox 2010 will be held on Friday 16th July when the festivities kick off and our favourite prodigal child returns to his East London roots as Dizzee Rascal fronts the main stage. If Dizzee is not your thang, then the likes of Mystery Jets, The Maccabees, Bombay Bicycle Club and the Noisettes are all on hand to delight.
Saturday 17th is laden with musical deliciousness, where on the main stage Roxy Music, Mark Ronson and Hackney resident Paloma Faith headline, whilst Empire of the Sun and These New Puritans rock the Gaymers Stage. The Sunday has a more electronic tip and boasts the legendary, awe-commanding Grace Jones at its helm. If this is not enough to get your dancing shoes on then Peaches, Hot Chip and Hercules & Love Affair are also performing, not to mention some of London's hottest club nights including Disco Bloodbath and Wet Yourself are all presenting stages.
