Rick Wakeman To Headline Crystal Palace

There’s a two-day Rock and Pomp festival happening at Crystal Palace Park Bowl this summer.

Known as The Crystal Palace Garden Party, the event is set to take place on Saturday, June the 23rd and Sunday, June 24th.

Prog Rock musician and former YES member, Rick Wakeman, will be headlining the first day and will be joined by Hawkwind, Focus, The Strawbs and Martin Turner’s Wishbone Ash.

Wakeman played the festival back in 1974 along with Procol Harum, Leo sayer and Gryphon. Tickets were just £2.75 in advance and £3.00 on the day, and a programme of event was just 20p!

The second day of the festival is the Jubilee Proms, with the London Gala Symphony Orchestra.
