LOVEBOX 2009 – LONDON’S FINEST…..Posted on June 3rd, 2009 by UK Music Jobs in Gig News
We don’t know about you but we love music festival weekends. Beer, sunshine, good friends, dancing, singing, obsessing about seeing the bands you love and then raving about the ones you discover….happy days! What we like even more are the one’s right slap bang in the heart of London town.
Lovebox returns to Victoria Park, East London on Saturday 18th July and Sunday 19th July 2009 and it looks set to be bigger & better than ever before.
First of all Duran Duran are headlining the Saturday night and its their only UK festival date of the year. Rather bizarrely (yet weirdly brilliant) they will follow N.E.R.D who we saw live at the Isle of Wight Festival a few years back. We weren’t sure how that was going to go but trust me those boys know how to get a crowd jumping. Quite literally as it happens….
Other acts confirmed are the brilliant Florence & The Machine, Friendly Fires (a band you absolutely must see this year), legendary punk rockers New York Dolls, the sublime Doves, Groove Armada, Noah & The Whale, rising soul diva VV Brown (who’s track Crying Blood we absolutely love) and the magnificent Ladyhawke plus many more….
In addition to the mouth watering musical line up the organisers have also extended with an even bigger 40 acre site, 7 stages, the Gaymers Stage (which is London’s largest purpose built tree house), The Pushmi-Pullyu circus tent & the All Star Lanes outdoor bowling championship….phew!!
Lovebox is not only one of the most credible festivals of the summer its also the most fun you could have during a weekend in a field in East London! The Music Jobs crew will all be there so if you see us come up and say hello! A beer would be nice too….;-)
