Offering four stages, around 40 artists and a capacity of 8,000 people, the City Splash Festival will take place at Beckenham Place Park (near Crystal Palace) on September 12, 2021.
Here are all the details of the festival celebrating reggae:
City Splash’s mission is to celebrate the impact and importance of reggae music on British culture, spawning everything from Ska, Rocksteady, Dub, Roots, Dancehall, Lovers Rock to its British ancestors of UK Reggae, Jungle, Hip Hop, Garage, Grime and Drums and Bass; the influence of Reggae has been a constant in the UK for 50 years. Not only has it brought us the riddims and lifestyle influence, but it’s a genre that expresses and addresses social issues and their solutions through the messages of music.
We will be hosting the best Caribbean street vendors in London in conjunction with the London Jerk Fest; Enjoy your favorite delicacies, from jerk chicken and vegan Italian stew, fried plantains and more. For those of you looking for a more liquid lunch, expect an unrivaled selection of rum vendors and locally brewed craft beers, stouts, and spirits to add some fyah to the day.
Reggae’s influence on youth culture in London runs deep, the heartbeat of the genre and lyrics about love, redemption and natural life deeply affect fashions, lifestyles, friendships and unify strangers. at the International scale. We believe that such a musically and socially significant genre deserves a place in the annual London live music calendar and we look forward to bringing it to South London in September.
The festival is located in the beautiful Beckenham Place park near Crystal Palace and is home to ancient forests and grassy hills. With FOUR music stages dedicated to the biggest reggae groups, you can wander between unique production sites to catch your favorites.
