After its debut last year at its new London location of Gunnersbury Park, Lovebox returns this year with an incredible line-up for 2019.
Lovebox 2019 will see sets and performances from an array of internationally-acclaimed heavyweights including singer, songwriter and visual artist Solange, who will be headlining the Main Stage on Friday night, and Chicago’s very own Chance The Rapper, taking the top spot on the Main Stage on Saturday. Special appearances from the likes of Four Tet, BROCKHAMPTON (UK EXCLUSIVE), Loyle Carner, H.E.R. (UK EXCLUSIVE), Action Bronson and Kaytranada will ensure that this year’s edition will be one of its most vibrant to date.
On Friday night, Lovebox will welcome back the globally celebrated American artist Solange, two years on from her epic performance on the Noisey Stage, where it was reported that she ‘broke free from the hospital’ to perform an unforgettable headline set. Following the release of her debut record ‘A Seat At The Table’, which went to number one on the US Billboard Charts. In the wake of this seminal album, came performance art shows at the Guggenheim Museum, the Chinati Foundation in Marfa and London’s Tate Modern. At the end of 2018, Solange revealed that new music was on its way, making this sure to be one of the most hotly anticipated performances in London this summer.
The second headliner is multi-disciplined, three-time Grammy Award-winning artist Chance The Rapper, who will be closing the Main Stage on Saturday night. The American artist first gained recognition after the release of his 2013 mixtape ‘Acid Rap’ and went on to become a significant contributor to Kanye West’s ‘Life of Pablo’ before releasing his third mixtape ‘Colouring Book’. Most recently, the end of last year saw two surprise releases from him, including ‘The Man Who Has Everything’ and ‘My Own Thing’, hinting at new material to come this year.
Lovebox is delighted to announce a host of outstanding media partners including i-D, Noisey, Highsnobiety, Places+Faces, and FACT – all hosting areas and takeovers at this year’s festival. 2019 will also see the return of Pxssy Palace, who will be hosting The Sanctuary – a safe space dedicated to the inclusivity of Womxn and LGBTQI+POC.
