Lovebox and Citadel are set to switch location in 2018, it has been confirmed.
The move has been mooted for some time, with All Points East winning sole use of London's Victoria Park site for the next five years.
Lovebox and Citadel are Victoria Park stalwarts, and immediately set in motion plans to secure another location in the city.
The live events will switch to South London in 2018, occupying a new site at Brockwell Park. Jools Butterfield, founder of Lovebox, says:
“Nothing stays the same forever, and after thirteen very happy years in East London, it’s time to open a new, ever more colourful chapter in our history as we go back to our South London roots and make our new home in beautiful Brockwell Park.”
“Lovebox is a London institution and right now there is nowhere more exciting for us to be than woven into the rich cultural and musical tapestry of Brixton and its surrounds. Come with us as we unleash a new twist in the everlasting Lovebox story.”
Rory Bett, CEO of MAMA Festivals says, “Citadel has already built up a loyal following of music fans of all ages, who love nothing more than the Sunday style and revelry that the show has become famous for in a very short time.”
“Citadel represents this great city and it’s an honour for us to work in the beautifully situated Brockwell Park and delve into the inspiring music, art and culture flowing from South London.”
Lovebox 2018 runs between July 13th - 14th, with Citadel 2018 taking place on July 15th.
