Shortly after it was reported that Tyler, the Creator will be returning to the United Kingdom next year to headline London’s Lovebox festival, more information about the line-up has been revealed.
Lovebox 2020 will take place in Gunnersbury Park from June 12-14, running over three nights rather than two for the first time in the festival’s history. Of course that means that there will be three headlining acts now, too. Alongside Tyler, festival reps confirm that those headliners will be Khalid (Friday) and Disclosure (Saturday).
While the full line-up is yet to be announced, other confirmed acts now include Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals, FKA Twigs, Charlie XCX, Hot Chip, Jorja Smith, Little Simz, Mabel, and Peggy Gou. You can sign up for pre-sale tickets here.
The event will mark Tyler’s first UK festival gig since he was banned back in 2015, the BBC reports. At the time of the ban, the UK’s then-Home Secretary Theresa May had used anti-terrorism legislation to forbid him entry. She said that his work, “encourages violence and intolerance of homosexuality,” and that it “fosters hatred with views that seek to provoke others to terrorist acts.”
Speaking about the ban to The Guardian recently, the US rapper reflected, “I got treated like a terrorist.”
