Skepta, SZA and N.E.R.D. are heading to Lovebox 2018

After staging it past editions at Victoria Park since 2005, the London festival will relocate to Gunnersbury Park on 13-14 July, 2018.

Lovebox have now announced the first acts for their debut edition at the west London area. Grime don Skepta has been confirmed as the two-day event’s headliner, along with N.E.R.D. and Childish Gambino. Having led the Grammy nominations for women artists this year, SZA has been confirmed as the festival’s special guest.

Elsewhere on the line-up announcement, there’s Kali Uchis, Vince Staples, The Internet, Mabel and D Double E. For Lovebox’s more electronic leanings, there’s Motor City Drum Ensemble, who’s just been enlisted for a remix on Dekmantel’s anniversary series. Furthermore, Peggy Gou, Moxie and Jane Fitz – who features on our list of The 50 Most Exciting DJs in the World (Right Now) – have been booked for the programme.

Last year Lovebox celebrated its 15th edition with an exclusive headline set from Frank Ocean.
