Hospitality @ Lovebox – Our Memories in Pictures

THIS JULY will see the third addition of a Hospitality stage at Lovebox. As a London festival, Lovebox is always a special date in the Hospital diary as this year will see our full roster return for an 11 hour session of outdoor Drum&Bass in Victoria Park. If you haven’t got your ticket yet already, you can pick one up HERE.

In anticipation to this third summer session on the 20th July, we look back at our five favourite memories from the past years that Hospitality has brought the Bass to the Box:

2011, Shy FX starts a rain dance

Despite weeks of positive forecasts, the heavens opened up during Shy FX’s set at Lovebox 2011. 281649_224498547588168_392076_n

However, Shy FX’s shout out of ‘f**k the rain, we’re having a rain dance’ seemed to send everyone into some sort of animalistic rave…

As the torrential rain continued, David Rodigan assured the crowd was feeling the summer vibes through an inspired set that featured reggae, soul and jungle to name a few.

It left him and the crowd floating on air…

2012, Netsky LIVE! is born!

Our second appearance at Lovebox saw the world premiere of Netsky’s first ever LIVE! set up.

The organic vibe from a full live band was something hard to match as the rendition of ‘Come Alive’ saw the crowd go wild and secure the future of Netsky’s live set up for many concerts to come.

165878_410232895681398_733232007_n2012, Hospital’s latest signing S.P.Y. takes Lovebox down a darker route.

Lovebox also saw the debut of Hospital’s most recent signing last summer, Carlos Lima aka S.P.Y. representing a sound much harder than the rest of the Hospital camp. For the most part, S.P.Y. went in on the darker records such as ‘Love & Hate’, but picked his moments to switch things onto his more liquid roll out style, with ‘By Your Side’ of course delivering a BIG moment in the Big Top tent.

Who could forget that set where vocalist Ayah Marar joined Austrian duo Camo and Krooked on stage for an explosive finale.

382392_410231552348199_1283190821_nWith high octane renditions of ‘Cross The Line’ and ‘Watch It Burn’, Camo & Krooked served up a relentless 50 minutes, designed to drag every last drop of energy left from the crowd that had packed out the Big Top since early afternoon.
