Festival line-up update: Lovebox, Bonobo All-Dayer, Bloodstock Open Air and more

By | Published on Tuesday 2 April 2013


So, reaching straight into the box of festival-y love that is this year’s tenth anniversary Lovebox love-in… the initial artists added to the London event (with all headliners still tba) are (to name five) Flying Lotus, Julio Bashmore, Purity Ring, Disclosure and John Talabot. And that’s only a tiny part of it, the unedited version you’ll read in a sec is even easier to fall in love with.

Talking of love, you’ll really adore the way Croatia’s Dimensions is shaping up. Its new acts – several of whom are, by name, Mount Kimbie, Gilles Peterson, Brandt Bauer Frick, Blawan, Andreya Triana and Evian Christ – align with Model 500, Theo Parrish, Moodyman, Dave Clarke, Daphni, Tony Allen, Mala In Cuba, Derrick May and Pantha Du Prince, making for a rather appealing guestlist, if you like that kind of thing.

Those that do will probably also be pleased that Bonobo has arranged an all-day live special to celebrate the fact that he has a new LP, ‘The North Borders’, to release. So that’s nice of him, isn’t it? Staged at London’s Roundhouse, the Bonobian bash will co-star The Invisible, Letherette, Bullion, Illum Sphere, Dawud and Adam Buxton, who’ll be presenting a Ninja Tune-themed edition of his BUG video show.
