Festivals 2018 Lovebox and Citadel Festivals confirmed to move to Ealing’s Gunnersbury Park

Lovebox and Citadel confirmed to move to Ealing’s Gunnersbury Park

The events previously took place at East London’s Victoria Park

After much speculation regarding the future location of Lovebox and Citadel festivals, it has now been confirmed that both summer events will move to Ealing’s Gunnersbury Park for 2018.

Following confirmation that they would no longer be taking place at their usual Victoria Park home, it was previously speculated that the events would move to Brockwell Park in South London.

The move comes after new festival All Points East (featuring a world-beating line-up including LCD Soundsystem, Bjork and Nick Cave) secured an exclusive deal to run at Victoria Park for the next five years.

Field Day - which also previously took place there - is still yet to reveal its plans for 2018.

Dates for the two relocated events have also been announced. Lovebox will take place on July 13th and 14th, with Citadel following up on the 15th.

Last year saw a headline set from Foals at Citadel. Names for this year’s bill are set to be revealed next month.
