The Crystal Palace Overground Festival, August 10th-13th

All hail the East London Line. So grateful are the people of Crystal Palace for its ginger munificence that they've named their festival after it. And thanks to the ELL, the ritual sacrifices and virgin deflowerings that the festival presumably offers are within easy reach for Brockley residents:

The Crystal Palace Overground Festival will take place over 4 days, featuring over 50 attractions and 30 live acts, including local live music, poetry, theatre, comedy, film, food and fashion around the Crystal Palace Triangle, with events running in the week leading up to and during the main outdoor event itself at Westow Park.

Local bars will host gigs and DJs and there will be a ceramic workshop for children, a silent auction, painting and tailoring demonstrations, an open air cinema, shopping, including vintage and antiques and more.
