With the festival set to celebrate its tenth anniversary this year, the dance titans will return to play it once more on the event’s Saturday (16 June) , promising a “never-to-be-seen-again show”, featuring special guests, ahead of Friendly Fires’ headline set.

GA’s Tom Findlay said of the booking: “2002. Clapham Common. We'd decided to do an outdoor live gig , turn it into a bit of a party. It had sold out in 4 minutes. Which is when the chaos started. Ten years later and our love letter to the capital had become a 3 day weekend for 50,000 people. Talking to the regulars, it was clear that GA Live had to make a return. Unlike 2002, we can get ready for the 10th birthday gig without having to build the fence at the same time."

Maverick Sabre, Rita Ora, Stooshe, Delilah and Dot Rotten are also new for Saturday, while Devlin will play the Main Stage on Friday (15 June), when Hot Chip top the bill, and Crystal Fighters, Dev and Saint Saviour are on board for Sunday (17 June), when Grace Jones tops the bill.

It’s also been confirmed that the official Lovebox afterparties will take place at XOYO on Friday (15 June) and Ministry Of Sound on Saturday (16 June).

Lovebox Weekender 2012 takes place on June 15 - 17 June at London's Victoria Park.
