Following our first Rule The Roost outing at Parklife, Nando’s is loading up the Cock o’ Van and heading to Lovebox with enough chicken to feed the masses and enough beats to nourish the hardiest of party animals.

We’ll also be bringing some very special guests, so come find us in the fields!

To get you all fired up for the weekend, here are five Extra Hot acts playing around the festival that we know you’re going to love:

Ella Eyre
Since her breakout debut on Rudimental's 'Waiting All Night', Ella Eyre has continued bossing the charts with her incredible voice and infectious energy. An amazing live performer, her Lovebox set is likely to be a crowd-pleasing mix of her solo hits plus the collaborations, and if the East London crowd isn't completely fired up by the end then we'll gladly eat our sunhat.

Jackmaster
The Scottish party king’s set this weekend will be a guaranteed roadblock so make sure you get your crew down nice and early! One of the most creative DJs you’ll ever hear, Jackmaster jumps from disco to techno to hip-hop in the blink of an eye, but always with the emphasis on keeping the atmosphere Extra Hot.

B Traits
The Canadian DJ is now firmly established as one of the key tastemakers for the hottest new dance music emerging from the UK and beyond. Her Friday night Radio 1 slot showcases her love of eclectic electronic sounds, which she weaves into DJ sets that have had crowds from London to Ibiza in a frenzy. The Digital Soundboy record label, where she works alongside pioneers Shy FX and Breakage, is one of the most consistently exciting imprints around, expect hot new cuts to feature in what's sure to be a major party set.

Flight Facilities
Whatever the weather, this Australian duo will bring the sunshine to East London this weekend with their feel-good disco-house sound. Last year’s debut album ‘Down To Earth’ featured the evergreen club hit ‘Crave You’ which made them superstars in their homeland and with every trip to these shores they’re playing to bigger and bigger crowds. Sunglasses essential for this one.

Raury
Raury burst onto the scene last year fusing hip-hop and soul on the amazing ‘Indigo Child’ album, with the likes of Kanye West and Giles Peterson instantly singing his praises. The 19 year old has only played a handful of UK shows so this hotly anticipated date at Lovebox is going to generate a truly sizzling atmosphere. Catch him now while you still can.

Sounding tasty? Have a listen to some of these artists and more of our Lovebox festival favourites on our Spotify playlist below.
