Rapper Snoop Dogg and home-grown Hackney talent Rudimental have been unveiled as headliners of this year’s Lovebox festival.
The two-day festival will take over Victoria Park on July 18-19 and follows last year’s record-breaking sell-out event which saw 80,000 head east.
The urban acts will be joined by singers Jessie Ware and Ella Eyre, producer Mark “Uptown Funk” Ronson and Cypress Hill
Electronic music duo Groove Armada will also be returned to the festival they originated back in 2002.
They said: “First it was an album title. Then club nights in a strip club on Tottenham Court Road. Then it became a festival when we threw an outdoor party on Clapham Common.
“Finally, on Victoria Park, we found ourselves running a 65,000 person weekender. For the first time since handing over the keys to Lovebox in 2012, we’re coming back to the park.”
A new initiative, called The Voicebox, celebrates the human voice and will include poetry slams, storytelling and beatboxing.
