The party in Victoria Park returns for 2015, with Snoop Dogg and Rudimental headlining and loads more great live acts and DJs

Snoop Dogg, Rudimental, Hot Chip, Jessie Ware, Little Dragon, Mark Ronson, Annie Mac, Cypress Hill, Flume, Flight Facilities, David Rodigan MBE, Ella Eyre, Danny Brown, Action Bronson, Squarepusher, Kaytranada, Ben UFO/Joy Orbison + more.

Still one of the finest boutique efforts in London, catering for cool kids and party monsters, Lovebox slimmed down to a two-dayer last year but managed to pack just as much fun in. As usual, it should be one of the highlights of the London summer thanks to a storming, genre-blurring line-up of DJs electronic acts and live bands, plus all sorts of weird fun on the side (performance, art, dance, and mysterious mischief) and a full range of banging afterparties. Crack open that Lovebox and dive right in: you won't be disappointed.

I think 2014 saw Lovebox raise its game considerably, while the line-up has always been impressive and perfect for those that want to dance it off all day in the sun last year there was a much much better focus on good food and drink, smaller party spaces and experiential fun. Between stages there was so much on offer which felt like a much more rounded experience and also helped to disperse the crowds between performances.

I agree the bars seemed under pressure after about 6pm. Looking forward to this being addressed this year for a much better all round day out.

It's also an absolutely terrible festival for visitors. I 100% agree with the below comment that the organisers are only interested in making a profit. There were way too many people for the amenities avaliable, you have to queue for hours for everything and the map that you buy there is horrendous!!! We could not find the manor at all and the bearded kitten manor was not even listed to use for a point of reference! What a total ans utter waste of money and a day!!! I will never go here again!

Terribly unpleasant event for local residents. Large part of the beautiful park cordoned off for over a week - no access to band stand or running track, excessive noise, drug dealers on every corner, people urinating everywhere. Last year it took months to put the park back to normal. 


Greedy organisers interested only in making profit - completely disregarding local community. 


There are so many events, festivals, concerts, sport events every year in Victoria Park and none of them creates such damages and increase in criminal activities as this one.
