Crystal Palace Bowl will host a new open-air concert series this August.
South Facing Festival will take over the park’s amphitheatre from 5th-31st August, with 12 headline performances and lots of free community events. The first wave of artists features Dizzee Rascal w/ the Outlook Orchestra, The Streets, Max Richter, Supergrass and the English National Opera.
Festival Director Marcus Weedon, says: “After what’s been an extremely difficult 12 months for the live music industry, we can’t wait to put on a fantastic series of events that people can really get excited about. Not only do we have some amazing artists who are itching to put on a great show, we also have the privilege of being able to stage the festival at an iconic and important outdoor London venue, which has sadly been dormant in recent years. We’re all working incredibly hard to make sure South Facing is a fitting return to glory for the Crystal Palace Bowl!”
