One of the hottest festivals around, Lovebox features year after year the biggest names from across the pond for UK exclusive shows. Two years ago they had Frank Ocean, last year Childish Gambino; arguably the two biggest stars in hip-hop and rnb today. This year is no different; the Chicago kid and lyrical genius, Chance the Rapper headlines alongside Solange, who had a huge hit with her new album released in March.
