South Facing Festival announces new headliners
Published 8 Feb 2024
The festival in Crystal Palace Park has revealed the headliners for two more of its open-air concerts.
Taking place in the historic Crystal Palace Bowl across multiple summer weekends, South Facing Festival brings a varied line-up to South London, building its programme around each day's headliners. Music icon Grace Jones, indie sensations Future Islands, Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Jess Glynne, and reggae powerhouse Damian Marley have all been previously revealed for the summer concert series, and they've now been joined by two more major acts.
The first of these is Popcaan, an international dancehall superstar, who'll bring his acclaimed Unruly Fest, a celebration of Caribbean music and culture, to London on Sunday 28 July. He'll be joined by a slew of special guests that are still to be announced.
The second newly-announced headliner is London's own Dizzee Rascal, a pioneering grime rapper whose new album drops on 9 February. The legendary MC will be joined a star-studded line-up including Lethal Bizzle, Kurupt FM, Shosh, and more. They'll be taking over Crystal Palace Park one week after Popcaan, on 3 August.
Tickets for both gigs go on general sale on Friday 9 February at 10am. Find out more about the festival and book tickets here.
