Wiley, Ghetts, Novelist and more set to play Croydon's Boxpark festival

Croydon’s Boxpark is set to become a massive food and culture spot when it opens officially, and it’s kicking things off the right way by partnering with Eskimo Dance and NME for a two-day festival this October.

Saturday October 29 sees Wiley, Ghetts, Novelist, P Money, Solo 45, Cadell, President T, Blakie and Elf Kid taking to the stage, with many more already confirmed to play and two special guests to be announced, while on Sunday October 30 NME’s roster includes A2, Alfa Mist, and Nova Twins among others.

Boxpark Croydon follows in the steps of its sister “pop-up mall” in Shoreditch, with more than 40 food and drink traders setting up stalls in the south-east London borough.

Tickets for the Saturday start at £20 and are available here, while the Sunday is free for anyone who registers here.
