MAMA & Company has completed a deal for sole ownership of London’s Lovebox festival.
Founded by DJs Andy Cato and Tom Findlay of Groove Armada in 2002 and named after the outfit’s fourth album, the event has grown from a club night to become a three-day annual event held in Victoria Park.
MAMA has been working with the DJ duo since 2007. The acquisition follows news of the company’s management buyout from HMV, and its partnership with financier LDC in December 2012.
Dean James, CEO of MAMA & Company said: “We have enjoyed working with Tom and Andy over the years, but the reality is that we have been running this festival since 2009. Two of the original founders, Tim Harvey and Jools Butterfield are still very much part of the fabric of the event and working with Rob Silver, Rich McGinnis and Dave McCalmont, the future of the show is in good hands.
“Lovebox is London's best and most creative festival and we look forward to putting on a great party in Victoria Park this Summer on what will be Lovebox's 10th anniversary."
Lovebox 2013 will take place between 19th – 21st July 2013.
