Our weekly round up of this week's biggest new tours, shows and events.
Lovebox has been confirmed as one of two London festivals moving from Victoria Park to South London’s Brockwell Park next summer.
Following the 15th birthday celebrations, welcoming headliners Frank Ocean and Chase & Status, Lovebox will more to their new home ready for the festival from the 13 – 14 July 2018.
It takes the festival back to their South London beginnings, as the very first Lovebox took place on Clapham Common in 2002.
“Nothing stays the same forever, and after thirteen very happy years in East London, it’s time to open a new, ever more colourful chapter in our history as we go back to our South London roots and make our new home in beautiful Brockwell Park,” Lovebox founder Jools Butterfield announces.
“Lovebox is a London institution and right now there is nowhere more exciting for us to be than woven into the rich cultural and musical tapestry of Brixton and its surrounds. Come with us as we unleash a new twist in the everlasting Lovebox story.”
The move comes as another of the UK’s most exciting festivals announces their new location. Citadel will now also take place at Brockwell Park.
“Citadel has already built up a loyal following of music fans of all ages, who love nothing more than the Sunday style and revelry that the show has become famous for in a very short time,” CEO of MAMA Festivals Rory Bett says.
“Citadel represents this great city and it’s an honour for us to work in the beautifully situated Brockwell Park and delve into the inspiring music, art and culture flowing from South London.”
Line-up information for both festivals will be unveiled in the near future.
Lovebox runs from Friday 13 July – Saturday 14 July 2018 at Brockwell Park. Citadel follows on the 15 July 2018.
