At last, Croydon is to get the sort of live music event it deserves, with The Ends Festival being staged over three days next summer in Lloyd Park.
There’s a 15,000 daily capacity for the festival, which is being held from May 31 to June 2, where rapper Nas will headline on the Friday, Wizkid – who collaborated with Drake on global hit “One Dance” – will head up the Saturday line-up, and Sunday’s feature is reggae star Damian Marley.
More acts are due to be announced in the coming weeks, with the organisers saying they want to “engage and inspire local, national and international communities of composers, performers, creators and concert-goers through world-class performances”.
Tickets go on general sale next Wednesday, December 19, and are not cheap, starting from £50 for one day, up to £135 for a three-day pass.
But Croydon residents with valid postcodes can get in early on a 48-hour pre-sale window.
