Nas will perform ‘Illmatic’ in full at Lovebox 2014

A live run-through of famous hip hop album leads the new additions to the Hackney summer fest.

Lovebox have bolstered their introductory 2014 announcement last month - a line-up that included M.I.A, A$AP Rocky, Katy B and Joy Orbison - with a UK exclusive live performance of the 'Illmatic' by rapper Nas. This year marks the 20th anniversary for the album, heralded from the start as an exemplar of '90s New York hip hop, and show will celebrate the occasion and a special edition 'Illmatic XX' re-release. The track NY State Of Mind from the album is embedded.

As well as the Nas news, the festival have also added acts that include Benji B, DJ EZ, Fort Romeau, Soul II Soul and Tom Trago. Full details and tickets at loveboxfestival.com
