Reasons To Be Excited For Lovebox Festival by Sophie Polak

Lovebox festival officially starts today and is set to carry on with great music, food and entertainment until Sunday, if you are going then here are some things to be really really excited about… And if you’re not going this will truly make you want to get a ticket for next year!

The Line-up: Chase & Status, M.I.A and Katy B are just a few of the major names that are going to be there. Also a few names that may still be a little bit under the radar for some but well worth a listen are Cyril Hahn (his Destiny’s Child remix is amazing), Banks and MNEK.

The Weather: With warm temperatures and a bit of rain forecast to cool you down, those trusty British wellies may not be needed, hurrah.

Not Camping: A non camping festival is definitely a bonus. You can really look your best after having a great lay in and a shower to wash that beer out of your hair. You will hopefully feel a lot fresher and be ready to carry on dancing all weekend and into the night.

The Food: Top notch gourmet food is a real improvement to the usual greasy burger vans. Also with the inclusion of Nando’s on the menu, everyone will definitely be satisfied. If you are lucky enough to be a VIP then make sure you try The Disappearing Dining Clubs pulled BBQ beef… mmm.

After Dark: Although it’s a non-camping festival the bonus ‘after dark’ parties going on all over London make sure that all night festival vibe is still there.

Getting A Free Ride: Lovebox has teamed up with Uber (The Taxi App) to give you a free ride (for the value up to £20) to and from the festival and it’s after parties. This is going to be an absolute god send for those who may not be able to handle their drink and are not the best at studying the night bus.
