The Lovebox Weekender returns to London this summer at Victoria Park on 15 17 July 2011. The headliners are The Wombats, Snoop Dogg and Scissor Sisters.
If you were tempted to give the 2011 Lovebox Festival a miss this year, you’d better think again – it’s going to be a beauty! Tickets for the weekender went on sale this morning, with prices ranging from £28.50 for a Friday ticket, £48.50 for a Saturday or Sunday ticket, £65 for a 2-dayer for Friday and Saturday, £87.50 for a 2-dayer covering Saturday and Sunday or just £99 for all three days. You might just want to check out the line-ups as well…
The big headliners are The Wombats on Friday 15th July, Snoop Dogg on Saturday (16th) and Scissor Sisters on Sunday (17th), hence the variation in day-ticket pricing.
Lovebox will see Snoop Dogg perform the album “Doggystyle” in its entirety for his only UK festival appearance this year. He’ll be joined by Tha Dogg Pound, Lady Rage and Warren G for some blazing renditions of tracks from the 1993 debut such as “Gin and Juice”, “The Shiznit”, “Who Am I (What’s My Name?)”, “Doggy Dogg World” and “Murder Was The Case”. It’s a bit of a one-off, doncha think?
The rest of the weekend line-up also includes Example (Friday – billed as Bang The Box), The Drums and Katy B (Saturday – billed as Music Safari) and 2 Many DJs, Marc Almond and Blondie (Sunday – billed as Out & Out Fierce). There will also be an incredible array of club and dance DJ-sets including Skream, Horse Meat Disco and Hospitality
