Get into the groove at the capital's dance music festival

The Independent Culture

It's 10 years since Groove Armada cannily tapped into the boutique festival zeitgeist and launched Lovebox on Clapham Common. It has since relocated to Victoria Park in Hackney and is now firmly established as celebration of discerning dance music (contemporary and classic), and London's endlessly innovating club culture. On Friday, Lovebox pays homage to the capital with cuddly disco-funk nerds Hot Chip, and Skream & Benga's chart-busting Magnetic Man.

Saturday welcomes Friendly Fires dance-y, disco-y indie pop, a rare Groove Armada live show, London Elektricity's euphoric drum & bass and Little Dragon's beguiling electro-pop. Sunday's a tribute to US heavyweights who laid dance music's foundations including Chaka Khan and show-stopping Warhol-muse Grace Jones. Away from the main stage, Lovebox offers delights such as NYC Downlow's fabulous, dilapidated New York tenement block hosting wild parties. Moustaches optional.
