Free love: Win tickets to Lovebox
The Lovebox Weekender cosies up to London’s Victoria Park later this month, bringing with it a host of top-drawer acts, along with a rare opportunity to catch the imperious Sly & The Family Stone in action.
Other estimable acts to play the festival, which takes place Saturday July 21 and Sunday July 22, include Blondie, The B-52's, Super Furry Animals, Hot Chip, Patrick Wolf and The Presets.
Courtesy of Rizla, we’re giving away two tickets to the event for one lucky soul and spouse/friend/mortal enemy who answers the following question correctly. We’ll be chucking in some Rizla tents and wellies as well.
What is the name of Sly & The Family Stone’s monged-out masterpiece from 1971?
a.) There’s A Diet Goin’ On
b.) There’s A Riot Goin’ On
c.) There’s A Gary Mabbutt Goin’ On
Rizla has delved into its heritage recreating an original travelling music van from the 1920s. They are reinventing this along with a new collective of creative legends, Don Letts, Pete Fowler, Greg Wilson and Andy Votel, who will be spinning records as The Invisible Players.
