Acts confirmed for Crystal Palace Park on 16 June include: Stereo MC’s, Strong Asian Mothers, Rodney P & Skitz, Fowokan, Polarbear, Croydon SDA Gospel Choir and much more all being announced on the festival website at crystalpalacefestival.org.
Festival director Noreen Meehan said, “We learned a great deal from our first year in the park. We are very much looking forward to returning with a much-improved site and even more fantastic bands, artists and activities for all to enjoy for free.
“We are passionate about keeping the event free for all to attend as cultural events can be very expensive for families, younger and older people and those on a budget. It’s high quality arts, culture and heritage for the many not just the few!.
“We are hugely excited about the introduction of some new features for 2018 – the Village Green with a Bandstand, Dog Show, charity and community stalls, the Farmers’ Market and Craft beer bar and a dance tent to indulge our love of electronic music. Be sure to come down early to the park on 16 June as its going to be busy!”
The festival will take place all around the Crystal Palace area on 11–17 June 2018 with a weeks programme of guest events organised by the local community. The free Crystal Palace Park event on Saturday 16 June 2018 is produced and delivered by the festival organisation.
