Crystal Palace Overground Festival organisers call for acts to get involved

News Shopper: Applications are open to perform at Crystal Palace's summer festival Applications are open to perform at Crystal Palace's summer festival

Organisers of the eighth Crystal Palace Overground Festival are calling for acts to perform at this year’s event.

Those behind the London showcase are asking bands, artists or anyone with something creative to offer to apply for a spot by Sunday March 23.

The festival, which takes place at venues across Crystal Palace, has its main music stage at Westow Park and last year over 200 acts were said to apply for just eight spaces.

Musical director Daphnea Wenham has been involved for the past three years and said all “original music styles are welcome.”

She added: “It’s a great opportunity for bands looking to gain exposure so if you think you've got something to contribute; we want to hear from you.”

The event this year will take place over June 26-29. To find out more, visit the festival website www.crystalpalacefestival.org

I wonder whether the good people of crystal palace will be up in arms about this taking place, as with the Mizen proposed festival. Will the police have objections regarding the anti social and criminal elements that could possibly, and no doubt will happen, or does money speak louder than actions?
