Lovebox is a club in London that arranges a yearly music "mini-festival" in Clapham Common and I have to admit that this is the best night/day out I have ever had in my life. I don't know where to begin!Music
Main stage: Ross Clarke, The Loose Cannons, Jools Butterfield, Richie Havens, Norman Jay, Ozomatli, Grandmaster Flash, Groove Armada.Keep it Unreal tent: DJ Derek, Mr Scruff.
Ragbull House tent: Adrian Fillary, Rob da Bank, Joey Negro, DIY, Jon Carter.Movement tent: Show some love, Ollie Twist & Jason, Addiction, Fabio, Bryan Gee.
Don't be putt off if you haven't heard of any of them. There really is something for everyone.Facilities
The festival had disabled facilites which I thought was good, even though I cant remember seeing any people with disabilities but then again I can't remember that much at all.Food consisted of dirty burgers and hot dogs but was good and costed about £1.50 so not too expensive at all. Drinks however were extortionate. Cans of beer cost £3 and for those of us not drinking alcohol, bottles of water cost £2.
Also had a meeting point for lost stragglers!Tickets
The event runs from 12pm till 10pm at night with an after party at Turnmills (£15 entrance) from 10pm till 6am. I was too hammered to go to that but might take it easier next year and pop along!There is another Lovebox on a summers day party at Newcastle racecourse for all you northerners! This doesnt sell out do I dont know if its any good or not. Would be interested to hear from anyone who went!
All in all this was an amazing day out. I really would reccommend it to any one of any age and musical taste.
