This year the mighty Lovebox Festival celebrated a decade of love! After days of torrential rain and what was set to be a rather damp and dull day for Bangthebox on Friday; the heavens remained closed, the rain mac firmly packed away, and despite some hefty mud swamps, the day was glorious and the festival as expected was excellent. 

Arriving just after 2:30 to hoards of  early birds at the festival gates; it took a while to get past security and there wasn’t a great deal happening at this time around the festival. If you head there next year, give the festival a few hours to warm up. When it does all kick off, there is a lot to see and do at Lovebox. Given we arrived so early, we didn’t expect to leave having only seen a few acts. But after several ciders, much roaming, and several clashes with the main acts this was the case. We did however see Ms Dynamite, Magnetic Man, Roska and Stamina…3 minutes of SubFocus and 10 minutes of Plastician… Not bad really. Ms Dynamite was pure class, and Katy B made a surprise appearance, joining Skream, Artwork and Benga on stage to perform ‘Perfect Stranger’ which was a highlight of the day! At 2:40 in the ‘I Need Air’ video England score-great moment! For £30 this was a top-notch day festival, and one I would recommend to all lovers of good music!

Launched by jungle pioneer Shy FX as “a new platform for good music, not necessarily genre specific,” Digital Soundboy has established itself as one of the UK’s most exciting labels. Combining Shy’s experience with the expertise and enthusiasm of label-mates Breakage and B. Traits, FABRICLIVE 63 reflects the musical vision of the label and its parties, taking in a staggering 49 tracks for a breakneck tear-up through funk, house, dubstep, dancehall and drum & bass.

“Digital Soundboy’s edition is a near-genius mash of everything good about modern dance music – one of the best FABRICLIVE comps ever.” – DJ Mag

What an absolutely quality night at Fabric! With our new FabricLive membership cards we were able to skip a rather hefty queue and paid a very reasonable £10 entrance fee with our student cards. As usual we headed straight to the main room to be greeted with the delightful sounds of Zinc pumping out some seriously sexy baselines to a heaving crowd. After several hours of perspiration and full body whiplash dancing we were graced with an incredible set by Jack Beats, which was followed by an equally epic and impressive showdown by the Dubstep King Mr Benga himself with Youngman MC – [who is hot hot hot!] Annie Mac joined the duo on stage with her entourage and was donning a new blonde Gwen stefaniesque hair do- you could hardly recognise her! I took several videos which I have linked below, but as usual they only capture a flavour of the awesomeness! Fellow lovers of the D’n’B and Dubstep, get yourselves down to FabricLive on Fridays, come hunt us down and join us for the wobbles!

This year is the LOVEBOX festival’s 10th birthday on the earlier-than-usual weekend of 15th, 16th, 17th June 2012, bringing Victoria Park alive with some seriously epic performances. The three-day event will cater for all musical and artistic tastes reflecting the glamour and identity of the dynamic heart of London; defining Lovebox as the true festival experience anywhere in the UK. The Raiders have opted for the Friday ticket, given the line up is tremendously epic…

Tickets, priced between £29.50 and £99, are available now. For more information, visit
