Lovebox is a 3 day event - full information and tickets for all days: http://www.lovebox.net
This year sees the exciting launch of Lovebox’s groundbreaking all-new Sunday, which blends the coolest music, emergent art, cutting edge fashion and more to create an all-inclusive polysexual event unlike any other.
The immortal music and style icon known as Grace Jones will be headlining the main stage, bringing her ever revolutionary flair for subversion to Victoria Park. Beloved electro-pop juggernauts Hot Chip will also be present and correct, fresh from the critical success of their brand new album, One Life Stand. Over on the Gaymers Stage, electro-funk duo Chromeo will be tearing up proceedings and are joined by returning Aussie heroes Cut Copy, who, in a UK festival exclusive, will be dazzling audiences with their beautiful, nostalgia streaked pop, while the glam disco machine known as Hercules and Love Affair will also be back to enthrall once more with their irrepressible, glitter-strewn music.
Also along for the ride are renowned pop provocateur Peaches, the much buzzed about and deliciously offbeat new duo Silver Columns, and moody new upstarts Hurts, who pricked up ears last year with their wonderfully dark and disturbed single Wonderful Life. Disco Bloodbath, Trailer Trash and Horse Meat Disco are just some of the DJ crews who will be hosting areas on the day.
In addition, the incomparable Jonny Woo – performance artist/entertainer nonpareil – will be compering the main stage along with his troupe of club freaks and drag queens, which will include a unique, one-off fashion show by Dr Noki NHS. His fiercely individual, recycled clothing has found devotees in the likes of Lady Gaga and Beyonce, as well as an innovative art collaboration with Central St Martins in support of the charity Art Against Knives, which works towards reducing knife crime by engaging young people in troubled areas with art and fashion-based workshops. All in all, an exciting and compelling day out, and a fitting finale to a great weekend.
Alongside the show-stopping performances there will be another healthy dose of Lovebox's summer shenanigans; with the 40 acre site playing host to numerous other stages, performances and activities.
The infamous NYC Downlow also returns to Lovebox for 2010 after a year’s hiatus. This life-size ruin of a NYC tenement will resurrect New York’s golden age and festival-goers can expect to enjoy an eclectic mix of disco, soul, funk and dance.
As well as offering a diverse music experience - the bustling food market, Sourced Market, returns again, serving up culinary treats direct from the best stalls at Borough and Broadway markets. There will also be a broad program of theatre, art and comedy for those wanting to take timeout from the music performances.
