About Lovebox Festival

Lovebox is a two-day music festival held in Victoria ParkTower HamletsLondon. The event has been running since 2002 and was founded by DJs Groove Armada. During this time, Lovebox has also hosted events in NewcastleDublin and Ibiza as well as numerous parties and club nights.

Groove Armada began Lovebox as a resident club night at London venue 93 Feet East in 2002.

In 2003 to celebrate the first anniversary of the night, the pair hosted the first outdoor Lovebox event. The one-day event was held at the end of June 2003, on Clapham Common with a capacity of 10,000. Tickets for the event sold out in two days. The event consisted of one live main stage, three smaller dance stages plus bars and food stalls.

In 2004, the event was repeated with an expanded capacity of 20,000. The event sold out within three days. Lovebox also hosted a sister festival on Newcastle Racecourse followed by an after party.

In 2005, Lovebox moved to Victoria Park in Tower Hamlets. The festival expanded to two days and a capacity of 25,000. The event was co-headlined by Groove Armada and Mylo and featured four dance tents, two cabaret arenas, a 1900s Spiegel tent and a funfair

From 2007 until 2008, Lovebox hosted a sister event in Dublin.

By 2009, Lovebox had increased to a capacity of 50,000 and a 40-acre (160,000 m2) site.

Lovebox has also hosted nights at The End, Turnmills, Neighbourhood, Canvas, The Key and The Ministry of Sound in London and elsewhere in Brighton, Dublin, Belfast, Edinburgh, Newcastle and Ibiza, as well as an annual summer boat party, which ran until 2008.

For 2010, the festival has been expanded to a three-day event, notable however for the fact that Groove Armada are missing from the lineup.

Lovebox 2014 has been reduced back to a two-day event.
