Calling all Young Musicians

The Ends Festival:  31 May - 2 June 2019 @ Lloyd Park

Local young musicians will have the opportunity to perform at Croydon’s inaugural The Ends Festival, where international stars including as Nas, Wizkid, and Damian Marley – and Croydon’s very own Nadia Rose – will be headlining.
young people aged 14-25 can apply to audition to perform on the second stage, which will run alongside the main stage throughout the festival.

Performers will be given slots in between the main stage artists, and will showcase a range of styles and genres. Applicants can be solo artists or grous; they must live, work and study in Croydon, and be performance-ready to embrace a high-profile platform. Ideas around partnership working between groups and/or genres are welcome.

The deadline to apply is 25 March 2019.

There will also be opportunities for young people to shadow the festival team in the week leading up to the event – contact for more information.
