Blondie for Lovebox

United Kingdom United Kingdom | | 30 April 2007

Rock'n'soul legend Blondie will play a 'greatest hits' set when she tops Saturday's bill ahead of Super Furry Animals, Patrick Wolf, Junior Boys and The Presets.

It has also been announced that Sunday night headliners Groove Armada will play a 'Space Terrace’-style DJ set in the Strange Love dance arena, which has been uniquely designed around the set of Stanley Kubrick’s famous film, on Saturday afternoon.

Other dance acts just confirmed include Felix Da HousecatTiga, Scratch Perverts, Digitalism, Switch, Layo & Bushwacka, Mr C and Freeform Five.

The latest lineup announcement comes as organisers reveal more details on how this year's two-day event is shaping up.

Respected film-maker and punk/reggae music connoisseur Don Letts has also been asked to DJ in Rizla’s Invisible Players tent, alongside electro pioneer Greg Wilson, Twisted Nerve’s Andy Votel and record sleeve designer extraordinaire Pete Fowler.

Clash magazine will be hosting the Indiebox tent on Saturday, while live music promoters Bar Fly will be programming a stage full of breakthrough indie talent on the Sunday headlined by the canny pop of Good Shoes.

A piece of sunny Brazil is set for the festival on Sunday as Lovebox throws its own Latin carnival, starring authentic Brazilian musicians and dancers as well as stars of the baile funk scene, such as Bonde Do Role and Buraka Som Sistema. The Brazilian ‘daddy of all DJs’ who started the whole scene – Diplo – will also play a London exclusive festival set.

And London’s famed gay party hosts Horse Meat Disco will be celebrating disco culture in a purpose built nightclub featuring their beloved resident DJs and special guests.

World music, folk, rock & roll and country fans will find much to get their ears into on a dedicated stage featuring the likes of Ojos Du Brujo, Toots & The Maytals, Tunng, Malcolm Middleton, Ska Cubano, Soothsayers and Dynamo's Rhythm Aces.

It all makes up for another very special Lovebox Weekender. If you haven't already got tickets, you can snap them up HERE for £35 a day.
