Story by Jack Foley

SNOOP Dogg and Scissor Sisters are among the acts confirmed for this year’s Lovebox Weekender in Victoria Park, London, from July 15 to 17, 2011.

The 39-year-old rapper will perform his Doggy Style album in full at the summer festival, re-uniting with Warren G and Tha Dogg Pound on the Saturday night.

Scissor Sisters headline the Sunday and The Wombats kick things off by headling the Friday night.

Further acts across the three days include 2 Many DJs, The Wombats, Katy B, Kelis, Groove Armada, Blondie, Lykke Li, Metronomy and Robyn.

Each day of this year’s event is themed, with the more mainstream acts appearing on the Saturday.

Event organisers are also promising a farmers’ market, fringe cabaret, street artists and comedy.

Eight years old, Lovebox has become a must do event on the bristling summer social calendar.

Held annually on London’s oldest public park bordering Bethnal Green, Hackney, and Bow, the capital’s most creative and socially dynamic quarters, Lovebox as a festival, an urban event or “happening” is without comparison.
