With flaming art installations, men shooting lightning bolts from fingers and Jose Cuervo’s Margarita Garden ‘making a VIP out of everyone’, Lovebox encompasses all that is glorious, extravagant and sensory titillating about big boys like Glasto or Burning Man, whilst maintaining the small festival good vibes and intimacy. With Harlem girl Kelis and Lianne La Havas now joining the rosta, this years line up is just as scintillating as its accompanying entertainment.
Kelis brings a splash of her world renowned spaceyelectropop and R&B beats, whilst the extraordinary Lianne adds a touch of class with her old-school vibrato flavour. Drawing inspiration from the likes of Lauryn Hill and Erykah Badu, her melodic performances present creativity and soul in equal measure.
