South Facing is a brand new month-long series of open-air concerts. Running from 5 – 29 August 2021, it will take place at Crystal Palace Bowl, a South London landmark boasting over 60 years of live music history. The venue has played host to a variety of great performers ranging from Pink Floyd, Bob Marley, The Sex Pistols and The Cure to Elton John, Jeff Beck, The Beach Boys and the London Symphony Orchestra.
South Facing intends to bring this beloved outdoor performance space back to life for a new era with a diverse mix of artists spanning the worlds of rap, rock, classical music and more. Organisers have announced the headliners for the inaugural edition will include grime pioneer Dizzee Rascal, Britpop veterans Supergrass, composer and pianist Max Richter, the prestigious English National Opera (ENO) and Mike Skinner's project The Streets, among many others.
Aiming to be eco-friendly, South Facing's ultimate goal is to have zero environmental impact. Created by many of the same people who were behind Field Day, Cross The Tracks and Wide Awake, the plan is to work with local partners while setting high standards in sustainability for everything from audience experience and travel to recyclable and compostable products.
South Facing 2021 offers the rare opportunity to minimise your impact while maximising your fun with friends and family. So don't miss these late summer music soirées with a focus on saving the planet!
