Commenting on this year’s event, Andy Cato, of Groove Armada, said: “The Lovebox parties that started in 1999 have grown into London’s leading music festival and this year’s line up is the best yet. We’ve put together a weekend’s worth of the freshest music in the centre of town, wrapped in a traveling circus of surprises.”
