“Lovebox returns in 2014 with its first line-up announcement and its most vibrant celebration of self-expression and diversity to date. Renowned for delivering our city streets’ manifesto for musical discovery, London’s favourite festival is back this year with a first-rate event quite unlike any other.
This coming July, Lovebox is being joined by Secret Productions (co-organisers of Wilderness and Secret Garden Party 2009–2013), building a larger family to choreograph a new vision for Lovebox 2014. Now spanning two days, an urban revival is on its way. This year’s Lovebox is a true celebration of festival culture. Laced with giant art installations and theatrical sets sourced from Secret Garden Party and Burning Man, discover an immersive and hedonistic realm which will be unrivalled anywhere else in the UK, let alone London.
Headlining Lovebox 2014 will be fearless queen of rap M.I.A. The Matangi warrior we know as Maya, will unleash her musical explosion of light and heat on our main stage this year. An embodiment of worldly pop, M.I.A.’s celebration of music and freedom of speech will be perfectly placed in what is our most colorful Lovebox to date.
Also headlining this year’s Lovebox are drum’n’bass duo Chase and Status. Touching down in their home city, London boys Saul Milton and Will Kennard’s storming and riotous live show and will set our main stage alight with their dusty trip-hop grooves and jungle infused garage- the duo said ‘we’re excited to be headlining Lovebox this year, we both come from London so to play this festival in our hometown will be great. Plus you can always count on London crowds to bring it’.“
