After a gruelling winter it’s been a long time coming, but the Great British summer is finally here!
Unsurprisingly this is also when the English festival circuit kicks things off, but the prospect of washed-out weekends spent cowering under canopies still threatens to scupper festivalgoers’ plans. Except at London’sLovebox, which takes place from July 15-17, 2011.
It’s all rather impressive for an event that’s only eight years old, but possibly of more interest to out of towners is its location. Held on the sprawling Victoria Park, it’s wedged between the Olympic site and the creative enclave of Shoreditch and attracts far more locals than tourists. There’s something about the festival atmosphere that’s conductive to making friends so play your cards right and you may even end up with an invite to come back for 2012’s summer of frolics.
