Be still my beating cock! They've only gone and booked Snoop Dogg to do Doggy Style at Lovebox!

Snoop Dogg & The Dogg Pound will play Lovebox featuring Warren G, Kurupt and Daz Dillinger and banging out hit after hit from the legendary Doggystyle album, this will be a festival appearance not to be missed.
