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.”
