Festivals

LoveBox Friday 2019

Friday has massive amounts of talent and blending of genres...

The lineup undoubtedly pales in comparison to what was offered last year. H.E.R dropping out of the festival left a significant gap in the Friday schedule allowing more the smaller and obscure artists to take on the various stages.

It definitely the DJ & producer day with SG Lewis, Joe Hertz and Kaytranada all gathering to Gunnersbury Park. The festival scheduling deities were merciless – only allowing me to see Joe Hertz spin the decks with his unique blend of chill and picturesque summer vibes. It was a touching moment to hear Goodbye Kisses & Stay Lost live after they have keep me company on a many sunsets.

Despite the messy array there definitely massive amounts of talent and blending of genres with legendary Black Cypress, slowthai & Loyle Carner gracing the main stage.

These were the acts I was able to catch:


slowthai


The first set I dashed to leading to an explosive start to the festival. Moshpits left and right. A fall, bruised leg and bloody nose after – I was riding an adrenaline high.

Solange


She came in full-force to make up for cancelling Coachella earlier this year. Wrapping up the day with mesmerising vocals as the sun sets.
