Lovebox – Top Picks for Saturday


With Day 1 of Lovebox complete and day 2 just hours away, lets check out todays line up. While East London’s Plan B is set to headline the mainstage, here are my picks for what is set to be another brilliant day filled with sunny feel-good vibes:

    1. First up has to be the dynamic duo AlunaGeorge. Their infectious electro-pop vibes are set to take over Mainstage at 17.30 as they knock out their chart topping hits from Disclosure’s ‘White Noise‘, to ‘Attracting Flies‘ and their forthcoming re-release of ‘You Know You Like It‘. Having recently played to a sold out Electric Brixton, the duo are gearing up for the release of their debut album ‘Body Music’ on July 29th. Expect a massive crowd for Mainstage at 17.30, so get there early.
    2. DJ and producer B Traits, aka Brianna Price, is set to bring her upbeat carnival vibes to the Big Top Stage with MC Juma. The Canadian DJ, currently filling in for Annie Mac on  BBC Radio 1, is responsible for mixing ‘Fabric Live 63: Digital Soundboy‘ alongside Shy FX and Breakage. Expect an exciting set from B Traits today on the Hospitatlity (Big Top Stage) at 17.00
    3. Luka C and Ali Love have both enjoyed solo success over the years and now bring their much loved Infinity Ink Project to the Lovebox Stage.  The long term friends have collaborated with the likes of Chemical Brothers and Justice, right up to their current work with Hot Natured and Crosstown Rebels. Previous releases have included the funk infused ‘Games’ to the ridiculously catchy vocals of ‘Infinity’ and the psychedelic soulful ‘Aya’. You can catch Infinity Ink on the Hot Creations (Terrazza) Stage at 16.00, as well as headlining the official Lovebox afterparty at Oval Space.
    4. John Newman, whose infectious vocals featured on Rudimentals chart topping ‘Feel The Love‘ and ‘Not Giving In‘ is set to headline the Main Stage today. Having recently released his debut EP ‘Love Me Again’, topping the charts,  Newmans trademark big vocals are sure to draw quite the crowd today at Lovebox. Newman is set to take to the Main Stage at 16.30.
    5. Superstar DJ and Producer Mark Ronson is heading up Mark Ronson & Friends at the Red Bull Music Arena. The triple Grammy award winner, who has worked with the likes of Amy Winehouse and Katy B, is in high demand this summer with DJ sets at Melt Festival, Bestival and Ibiza. You can catch Ronson headline on the Red Bull Music Academy Stage at 20.30.

As with yesterdays incredible lineup, other notable mentions must go to High Contrast, Fred V & Grafix, A Trak and  D’Angelo. Check out my playlist of top picks for today and check back soon for Sundays picks
