They will headline in London

LCD Soundsystem are to headline London festival, Lovebox.

The festival takes place in Victoria Park, east London with LCD Soundsystem set to headline the Saturday night (July 16) of the two-day event.

Major Lazer will headline the Friday night (July 15) with more names expected to be confirmed in the coming months.

Lovebox represents LCD Soundsystem’s first UK date since announcing their reunion earlier this year. The New York band will also be appearing at Coachella in America and Spanish festival Primavera.

James Murphy issued a lengthy statement on January 5 explaining how the band came to reform:

“We’re not just playing Coachella. we’re playing all over. we’re not just having some reunion tour. we’re releasing a record (sometime this year—still working on it, actually), so this isn’t a victory lap or anything, which wouldn’t be of much interest to us).”
