A London hostel could be the perfect base for the Lovebox festival
Keen music fans after a weekend away might like to indulge in the Lovebox festival.

The event begins tomorrow (July 16th) and staying in a cheap hostel in London could be the perfect destination in which to be based.

Top acts such as Dizzee Rascal, Chase and Status, and Empire of the Sun are all set to appear at the event with the former headlining the main stage on Friday.

Since the first ever Lovebox seven years ago, which featured bands such as Groove Armada, there is now three times more entertainment.

The organisers noted: "The best bit about this is that we can now not only programme three times more music, but we can programme across more styles and genres in what gets booked while digging deeper to find some amazing rising talent."

They are expecting 50,000 attendees for the event, which culminates with Hot Chip performing on Sunday. So, it might be worth reserving hostel in London as soon as possible.

Radio 1 DJ Gilles Peterson, who "fired up" a dance music arena at the very first Lovebox, has previously stated that the weekend festival is proof that London is the hippest place on the planet.

Individuals who are keen on attending the event might like to think about booking an east London hostel near Victoria Park, where the extravaganza is set to take place.

However, those who are visiting the capital this weekend may also like to check out the Shoreditch Festival, which includes music and dance and is free to attend. It runs from tomorrow until Sunday.
