Vicky Grout captured Frank Ocean’s highly anticipated set and the atmosphere on ground at the Victoria Park blowout.

There was a lot going on at Lovebox this year. A heightened sense of anticipation surrounded this year’s two-day event with an exclusive headline slot confirmed from Frank Ocean. The Blonde singer, having previously cancelled a slew of festival dates this year, gave a rare performance of introverted cuts, complemented by visuals from acclaimed director Spike Jonze.

A surprise Blonde merchandise stall opened up at the park beforehand, Solange performed a mesmerising, synchronised show, Sampha brought the emotional devastation and a host of DJs brought the vibes.
