CRYSTAL PALACE FESTIVAL

June 16, 2018

Free

The Crystal Palace Festival is a community festival organised by a group of passionate local people, giving up their time voluntarily to run an event which showcases all that’s great about the area. Eclectic music, comedy, theatre, spoken word, film, participatory arts, fabulous food and drink, fun family workshops and activities in art, theatre, music and sports and a chance to discover the heritage of a world renowned part of London are just some of the festival’s attractions. It is organised by the Crystal Palace Festival Group CIC, a social enterprise.

Stereo MC’s will be  headlining the main stage at the festival – one of the most successful  bands to come out of the mid 80’s inspirational Hip Hop scene and the DIY UK acid house/club scene. Stereo MC’s reputation grew slowly throughout the late 80’s with their own underground dance label and live performances with De La Soul, A Certain Ratio, EMF and U2 and Happy Mondays.

After early chart success in America for their second LP Supernatural, they recorded the album ‘Connected’ which became an international hit. This period culminated with a Mercury Prize nomination and two Brit awards for Best Album and Best Live Act
