Lovebox Baby

leave a comment »

Last Sunday I spend the day at the east London festival Lovebox with V and some of my friends.  Lovebox is a very accessible multi-genre event that has taken place in Hackney’s Victoria Park for the last 5 years.  It’s generally quite corporate free in regards to sponsorship (which is always refreshing), with farmers markets, independent stalls and a real mix of different stages and tents

Highlights:  Seeing Groove Armada, The New York Dolls and Gary Numan, and seeing Matt Berry in the crowd.   Not seeing one fight (unusual where there are large numbers of Brits and lots of alcohol). 

Lowlights:  Microphones that didn’t work.  Bands not sticking to their set times.  Police stop and search a bit too much.  Drinking too much cider.  Walking back to my friends house in Dalston after the festival, in the rain.  Inexplicably the journey took us 45 minutes.
