J Hus is back, y’all. Marking his only UK festival appearance this season, Lovebox festival in London has just announced that Hus will be joining the illustrious Friday line-up on i-D stage!
His debut album, 2017’s critically acclaimed Common Sense, only built on this, with Hus telling i-D at the time: “I knew when I came out I wanted to make music that meant something, that lifted the spirit. I don't want to just be the guy who makes wavy tunes for the club. I love that too, but I wanted a balance. I want to be the most diverse act, I want to be that all-round guy."
With that album selling over 100,000 copies, landing at Number 6 on the UK charts and after he recently shared the stage with Drake, heading to Lovebox feels like the next step.
Joining him on Friday are recent i-D cover star Solange, Cypress Hill, who will be performing Black Sunday in full, 2 Chainz, Loyle Carner, Kaytranada, slowthai, Solomun, Green Velve and loads more. This day of excellence will be followed by Saturday’s line-up, which features headliner Chance the Rapper, Giggs, Brockhampton, H.E.R. and Lizzo. Taking place on 12 + 13 July, Lovebox will again be hosted at its new home of Gunnersbury Park. Tickets for the festival are available now at loveboxfest.com/tickets. See you down the front!
