Crystal Palace Festival is a free arts & culture festival run by volunteers in the heart of Crystal Palace, with the main festival event on Saturday 16th June at Crystal Palace Park, London, although events will run from Monday 11th until Sunday 17th June.

Headlining the Main Stage at the Park on Saturday 16th June will be Stereo MC's, with PolarBear in the spoken word tent. The whole Park programme will be announced in early April, with the full festival programme for 11-17 June to follow.
The Park day will include a new area called the Village Green that will feature choirs and bands from the Crystal Palace area, dance workshops, our Think Pawsitive Dog Show, food in the Farmers' Market, refreshing drinks from the bar and many more activities from community groups. Expect music, spoken word, theatre, visual arts, family and community activities and of course food and drink.
The Crystal Palace Park event on Saturday 16th June 2018 will be free to enter as will 90% of all the events across festival week. If you would like to support the festival please do consider making a donation to help keep the festival free for all.
Festival director Noreen Meehan said “We are passionate about bringing music and the arts back to Crystal Palace Park so we are really excited about securing such great headliners, Stereo MC’s and Polarbear. The whole park programme will be announced in early April and more festival events in the coming weeks. 2017 was an amazing year for us with the line up and the move to Crystal Palace Park proving so popular. We are looking to build on that success so we have been working on hard on creating some new content for our lovely audience to enjoy. For example the Village Green will feature all that’s amazing about our very active community with fantastic choirs and bands from the Crystal Palace area, dance workshops, our Think Pawsitive Dog Show and much more from our great community groups. There will be tons more to see and do so stay tuned and put it in your diary now!”
