Crystal Palace Festival

Headliners – Andrew Ashong & JOHN

We are super thrilled to announce our headiners!

Saturday 15 August

Andrew Ashong the British-Ghanaian soul singer-songwriter, DJ and producer is from Forest Hill. Andrew’s single with Theo Parrish Flowers was Gilles Peterson’s single of the year in 2013. He has been described by Paul Lester of The Guardian as “a hazy, jazzy dreamer of a young soul rebel who in his music references Roy Ayers and Shuggie Otis, Bill Withers and Marvin Gaye.” andrewashong.tumblr.com

Sunday 16 August

Uncompromising Crystal Palace noise punk duo JOHN have been causing quite a stir of late, gathering fans right across the continent after supporting Idles on their European tour. Describing themselves as, “four arms, four legs, two heads, wood, metal, plastic” could be a summary of a band taking the simple things in life and stretching them to phenomenal extremes johntimestwo.bandcamp.com
