The Noisey Stage at Lovebox 2017 Is Going to Be Magical
We've got Solange, Sampha, Kaytranada and more, while Kano and Joe Goddard have been added to the lineup elsewhere.
Daylight Saving has started, you've started wearing a light jacket to work, and the itch for an early evening beer has started to plague you daily. Spring has sprung, and that can only mean one thing: summer – whisper it – is almost here.
With summer comes festivals. And we are very pleased to finally be able to announce the acts who'll be playing our stage at one of our faves, London's Lovebox, due to take place at Hackney's Victoria Park on 14 an 15 July. We're not ones to brag, but we're feeling pretty smug about it.
On Friday we'll be playing host to ethereal beings Solange and Sampha, Kaytranada, and the official Sound of 2017 Ray BLK, as well as Mick Jenkins, Rex Orange County, The Fedz, and Raheem Bakaré. Saturday will see Andy C take the headline slot on our stage, joined by Kurupt FM, Mist, AJ Tracey, New Gen and Klose One.
But, as the expression goes, the fun doesn't stop there: we can announce today that grime hero Kano will now be performing on Saturday's main stage, along with headliners Chase and Status, while new addition Hot Chip's Joe Goddard will grace the Corona stage, also on the second day of the festival. So basically what we're saying is, "be there or be extremely square". Tickets are available here and if we were you we'd snap them up right now.
