Victoria Park is celebrating 15 years of Love this summer.
Lovebox is returning for its 15th anniversary (12th in Vicky Park) on July 14 and 15 – and organisers reckon they have bagged their best line-up so far.
The landmark occasion called for two big headliners, and they delivered with Frank Ocean on the Friday and Chase and Status on the Saturday.
After his “disappearance” following Channel Orange, Ocean’s 2012 debut album, organisers were delighted to have secured the enigmatic star. His second album, Blond, was finally released in 2016 and was one of the most acclaimed of 2016.
Other acts on the Friday include Jamie xx, Mac Miller, Solange and Kaytranada.
