A new music festival is coming to Croydon and we are
looking for young musicians to be part of it.



The Ends aspires to provide a platform for the best that London has to offer, whilst hosting some of the biggest international stars from across the globe - Nas, Wizkid and Damian Marley - in a stage produced by Metropolis Music and Live Nation.

The festival’s ethos is to create opportunities for the local area and celebrate the diversity, culture and talent of Croydon.

The 3-day Festival will run from 31 May – 02 June 2019 in Lloyd Park.



We are looking for young musicians from around Croydon to perform on a smaller stage which will run alongside the main stage across the 3-day festival.

Performers will be given slots in between the main stage artists and will showcase a range of styles and genres.

We want to platform and celebrate the best of Croydon’s emerging young talent as this new festival lands in our borough.



We are looking for solo artists/groups who:

  • are from Croydon

  • are aged 14 – 25 years

  • are performance ready to embrace a high profile platform

We also welcome ideas around collaborations between groups and/or genres.

We are open to all genres and styles.
