The free four-day event will run from June 26 to 29 at venues across Crystal Palace and the Upper Norwood Triangle. More than 6,000 attendees are expected.

Festival goers can look forward to a feast of performing arts, crafts, holistic and sports activities, live music, DJs and food stalls, plus antique, craft and vintage shopping.

The festival will start with fringe events on Thursday 26 and Friday 27 around Crystal Palace in anticipation of the main big festival weekend. Westow Park will be the main festival hub on Saturday 28 with Sunday 29 focusing around the Upper Norwood Triangle.

In 2013, 155 performers and artists took part and 60 events were held throughout the region which was a new record for traders and venues getting involved in the Festival.

The Crystal Palace Overground Festival relies on volunteers, sponsorship, fundraising and the support of the local community. The organisers are actively seeking new volunteers to assist with the 2014 festival.
