AN OPEN LETTER TO LOVEBOX… FIRST WAVE LINE UP
It’s been a tough few months for you and we feel we should apologise. You’ve been coming and going and we’ve had your back for so many years that we feel terrible for not stepping up to the mark this time. From Victoria, to Brockwell but finally to Gunnersbury Park, we should have followed without question considering all the good times we’ve encountered under your bosom.
Sometimes change is good, think Obama or think Outkast when they split… some days things, people and events thrive and you my darling festival are no different. Not only have we got your back but so have Noisey, Corona Sunsets, Koppaberg and Mike Skinner Presents Tonga. Those are just a few of the brands that have followed you year upon year but we’re excited for more firsts with you and we’re astounded by your line-up so far.
So this is a big up for the Friday fillies that include Jacob Banks, Skepta, Anderson .Paak and The Free Nationals, Diplo, SZA, Ms Banks, D Double E, Mabel, Vince Staples, Dave, Bicep, Star.One and Sian Anderson. And wham bam thank you mam for bringing N.E.R.D, Annie Mac, Childish Gambino, The Internet, Shy Fx, Mura Masa, Big Boi, B.Traits, Action Bronson and CASISDEAD to a new home. And talking of home, we have to thank you for getting what we’re about and making us feel at home, by inviting Hip Hop Karaoke along! We mean who wouldn’t enjoy spitting lyrics courageously off by heart or on the flip side forcing yourself to rap to the track where you know few of words and the speed puts Twista in the shade?
Woop, there it is, and we hope you agree that it takes a bigger person to admit when they were wrong, so we hope you forgive us and that we can still come to the party… See you on the 13/14th July.
4th Release tickets are on sale now right here!
