Lovebox and Citadel announce another new location and when to expect line-ups

They'd previously said that they were moving to Brockwell Park

Lovebox and Citadel have announced their new location for 2018, as well as when fans can expect the line-ups for each event to be revealed.

The sister festivals take place consecutively across three days on the same site, and were previously held at London’s Victoria Park.

Now, after All Points East has moved into Victoria Park, Lovebox and Citadel have revealed that they’ll be heading into deep west London’s Gunnersbury Park. This comes after they’d previously declared that they’d be moving to Brockwell Park.


“We can’t wait to bring what is undoubtedly our best line up ever to historic Gunnersbury Park and to introduce a new and exciting urban space into the festival market,” said the festivals in a statement. “We look forward to working side by side with Ealing and Hounslow Borough Councils to bring the best in great music and popular culture to the area.

“Expect some amazing talent and the usual good vibes at our brand new home. We’d love to see you all there.”

Meanwhile, Lovebox will be announcing their first wave of their line-up on Tuesday February 13, after Citadel drop theirs on Tuesday February 6.

Lovebox will take place Friday July 13 – Saturday July 14, with Citadel following on Sunday July 15.


Last year, Lovebox saw a special headline performance from Frank Ocean, while Foals topped the bill at Citadel.
