Club Tip CMU Approved

Approved: Lovebox and its afterparties

By | Published on Friday 15 June 2012


Has there really been a decade of Lovebox? Yes, there has, and to celebrate this weekend we get an extra special three days of Lovebox action in Vicky Park, East London, starting round about now. Actually, for dance music lovers today probably has the strongest line-up – Hot Chip, Crystal Castles, Magnetic Man, Skream, Plastician, Roska, Sub Focus, Toddla T, 2 Bears, Jaguar Skills and the wicked Shy FX. Oh, and Gilles Peterson is in there somewhere too. If you’re London-based, I’d recommend stopping what you are doing and getting down there now. Though if that’s not possible, do check the rest of the weekend’s goodies at the Lovebox site.

And then also take time to check out the after show parties, at XOYO and Ministry tonight and tomorrow respectively. XOYO has the rather good Zinc headlining, with Disclosure, Baio and the Greco Soundsytem also on the bill. At Ministry on Saturday night you get Dixon, Damian Lazarus Miguel Campbell and Gerd Janson, plus Deep Shit presenting Jack Savidge (Friendly Fires), Tim Sweeney (Beats in Space) and the Crazy P Soundsystem, with other moves and grooves in The Loft.
