Ever since he announced his own festival back in November, we've been eager to see what Artwork has in store for us come 11th August.

He's remained uncharacteristically tight-lipped on the subject, that is until last night, when he revealed that his special guest DJ would be our very own DJ Harvey.

Taking to social media last night, Artwork explained that his Lovely London Festival, would be unique in that the full lineup would only be himself and one other special guest DJ playing all day long.

With that in mind he stated that if you're only going to have one special guest, he'd need to make sure "it's the best fucking DJ in the world."

"Dear all, this summer I’m putting on a Lovely festival In London, It’s not going to be a normal festival, It’s just me and one other dj, on one stage, from day into night.. Oh, and the other Dj is only the best f#<in’ DJ in the world ..." - Artwork

On Saturday 11th August, at the height of the sunniest month of the year, Artwork presents Art’s House, A Lovely London Festival.

With humble beginnings, Art’s House has grown from an intimate rave in a stranger's front room, to one of the most fun-filled parties to come out of the capital. From The Nest to XOYO to Brixton Electric to Pikes Ibiza to touring clubs across the UK, Artwork has built on Art’s House year-on-year and he’s about to take it even further with his very own festival.

The one and only DJ Harvey will be joining Artwork as his special guest for what will be the most fun you can possibly have at a festival this summer.

The meeting of two British DJ legends can only mean great things and after a summer spent holding down a residency each at the iconic Ibizan institution that is Pikes, the pair will finally give the people what they want. They'll come together for the first time as two of the finest selectors of house and disco in the game, soundtracking your entire day.

Taking over Three Mills Island, a lovely patch of greenery sat between Bow and Stratford, this will be the biggest Art's House yet. Enclosed by the winding Lee Valley River with an incredible industrial backdrop, this is the ultimate East London spot to throw a big ol' outdoor party.

As always, Art's House will be decked out to the rafters. Expect Art's vivacious troupe of dancers, mouth-watering street food, cold craft beers, summer inspired cocktails and a horde of home comforts only Artwork can provide (his front room sofa being one of them)...

Everyone’s welcome at Art’s House.
