The festival which will take place on the 14th and 15th July 2017 in Victoria Park, is celebrating its fifteenth year with one of the most adored and critically acclaimed artists of the decade. It will be Ocean’s only London festival next year, with Lovebox obtaining the exclusive.

After long speculation that he may not release another album, and then months of tension as rumours spread of a surprise release called Boys Don’t Cry, in August of this year he released Blonde, a visionary project featuring jaw-dropping guest spots from the likes of Beyonce, James Blake and Andre 3000.

Lovebox has always featured exceptional, genre-twisting headliners with Major Lazer and LCD Soundsystem headlining last year, and this year Frank Ocean leads the way for what they say will be “an incredible roster, once again making London’s own Lovebox a defining moment of the festival season”.

First release tickets are on sale now from £49.50 (+BF) on their website
