Festival seeks local young musician or band to join 29 act musical line-up

JOM Micro Music Festival in Brockwell Park this autumn is seeking a young musician or band to join a line-up of 29 young musical acts. The festival is a celebration of young musicians from open mic events and youth music organisations.

Festival organiser Andy Gray from JOM says, “We are looking for someone (or group) brave enough to get up on stage and present themselves to an audience of 500 and perform 1 song. They do not have to be experienced as the line-up is about showcasing a variety of performances – they just have to be between 4 and 17 years old.”

Field Day and Lovebox in Brockwell Park

Friends of Brockwell Park has from the outset opposed the applications by Field Day/The Mighty Hoopla (1-3 June) and Lovebox/Citadel (13-15 July) to hold major events in Brockwell Park this summer, on the grounds that their size (up to 40,000 a day for three days, taking from a third to a fifth of the park for weeks at a time) was grossly disproportionate for a small, hilly urban park such as Brockwell.

Brockwell Park - Lost in Music

In looking at the future of large music events in Brockwell Park, it can be informative to take a look back at the past, when the Park hosted everything from reggae festivals, to a CND peace festival (headlined by Madness), to London Pride, and even a cannabis festival from 2000-2004.

A fabulous festival on your own doorstep

Glastonbury. We can’t all get tickets, we can’t all afford them. Some of us, frankly, don't even want to go.

And why would you? Why haul a load of camping gear across the country when you can have a fabulous festival experience in south east London? The Crystal Palace Overground Festival, now in its 9th year, is a community festival organised by the lovely people of SE19.

Held on the 24-28th June, most of the events are free - so no mad internet scramble for tickets - and it’s run entirely by volunteers.
