The award-winning British rapper and popular drum and bass duo top an eclectic summer bill that also includes Harlem’s A$AP Rocky, electro producer Sub Focus and The Horrors.
Chart-toppers Katy B and Banks are set to perform, alongside the ambient Submotion Orchestra, UK producer Bonobo and dance band Crystal Fighters.
Other acts booked for Lovebox include Bondax, Cyril Hahn, Duke Dumont, Horse Meat Disco, Joey Badass, Joy Orbison, Madlib, Mount Kimbie, Scuba and Visionquest.
Arenas will be hosted by Annie Mac Presents and the Red Bull Music Academy, with parties run by Burning Man’s DISTRIKT.
Then there will be the Dance Off boxing ring to find Lovebox’s best dancer, featuring some special professional dancers from across the UK.
“We’re excited to be headlining Lovebox this year, we both come from London so to play this festival in our hometown will be great,” said Saul Milton and Will Kennard of Chase and Status. “Plus you can always count on London crowds to bring it.”
Lovebox runs from 18-19 July 2014 in Victoria Park, tickets £35
