Tia Maria @ Lovebox 2012

It’s been a decade since Groove Armada, the funk band at the center of the London-based sound renaissance, set up the famous live festival. Every year since there have been new stages and artists and now in 2012 the festival has become one of the most important live events to take place in the city. Three days of soul, funk, disco, pop and DJ’s from the 15th to the 17th of June at Victoria Park, Lovebox combines an extraordinary showcase for young talent and the ability to bring back to the stage soul legends. There’ll be Chaka Khan, returning to play live after years of absence from the stage, Nile Rodger’s Chic who with “Good times” sparked the hip-hop era, superstar Lana Del Rey, who is hoped to make a much-anticipated duet with “King of Soul” Bobby Womack, and Holly Johnson, the unforgettable voice behind “Relax” by Frankie Goes to Hollywood, along with an endless list of artists that will take us right through night. When the concert ends, the party begins at London’s nightspots. www.lovebox.net
