    It’s half a century since the heady days of 1967 when hippies ruled the world and peace and love reigned supreme.

    Deep in south London there’s a new spirit growing strong amongst a new generation of people determined to rekindle the generous sense of belonging for which that moment in history is so fondly remembered.

    London may not be San Francisco, and Croydon may not be Haight-Ashbury, but the tranquil greenery of Wandle Park is as good a place as any to re-imagine days gone by.

    So if you’re going to this festival, be sure to wear some flowers in your hair…

    When: Saturday 17 June, noon until 7pm

    Where: Wandle Park, Croydon (on the banks of the river Wandle)

    Getting there: Use the tram, there’s a stop right outside the park

    What’s on: Live music from the beautiful bandstand, spoken word performances, craft stalls, food, hula-hoop performers, meditation area, and bubbles and incense on the breeze.

    Who is playing: There’s a full music programme from 12-7pm in the bandstand.

    Oracy – Antarma – The Nine Lives – Code 8 – Billiefoxmusic – Junk Time Party – Everon Goen

    About the bands and musicians

    ORACY – MC and rapper Oracy is a young woman who confidently speaks from the heart over an atmospheric soundtrack that insinuates itself into your head and makes you sit up and listen.

    ANTARMA – Antarma’s music spreads joy and uplifting energy as he plays a fusion of heart-opening songs on guitar and ecstatic Afro-Brazilian Djembe rhythms, all laced with soul, reggae and hiphop With the blessing of his Guru In South India, he also shares mantra and meditation.

    THE NINE LIVES – The Nine Lives are a blissed-out Croydon-based four-piece band who deliver a funky semi-acoustic vibe that’s relaxing and energising all at the same time.

    Song: SirenPerformed at The Jack and Jill in Coulsdon

    CODE 8 – Code 8 are a talented collective of musicians with a shared love of post-prog rock. But don’t let this scare you, underlying their songs is a gentle passion that oozes chilled relaxation despite their heavy bass riffs.

    BILLIE FOX – Billie Fox is a charming and musically gifted performer who is starting to emerge as a songwriter in her own right. Listen to her first live radio session here.

    JUNK TIME PARTY – Junk Time Party are Croydon regulars, and band who play a classic style of bluesy rock and defiantly still advertise a MySpace page on their Facebook contact details.

    EVERON GOEN – After a long hiatus Everon Goen have finally returned, although with a very different line-up from before, all except for Sam Chincharo whos vocals and guitar are now heavily complimented by the powerfully soulful voice of Rhiannon. Under this are the dark ‘n’ twisted yet funky as funk basslines delivered by Ross, the tribal beats from Dan and the cosmos exploring keys from Ditch.
