Azealia Banks, Plan B and Goldfrapp to headline Lovebox festival
Plan B, Azealia Banks and Goldfrapp are to headline this summer’s Love Box festival in East London.
Harlem-born rapper Azealia Banks will begin the three-day event in Victoria Park, heading the Friday line-up which includes Hackney foursome Rudimental and current number one Duke Dumont.
Plan B will headline on Saturday, which will also see DJs Mark Ronson and A Trak take to the decks along with High Contrast, Netsky, Danny Byrd, Sry and Nu Logic.
Grammy-nominated Goldfrapp will headline the main stage on Sunday, when Radio 1 DJ Heidi will also host her Jackathon.
Lovebox 2013 is to feature its biggest dance line-up to date, with Heidi, Annie Mac, DJ Harvey and David Rodigan among a number of DJs who will be “curating” their own stages across the weekend.
Plan B said: “Lovebox at Victoria Park! My home crowd of East London right on my doorstep- I can’t wait,” while Azealia Banks said she was looking forward to playing in London. “I love UK crowds so it’s going to be amazing to play a festival in London,” she said.
