Live at Copeland Park: a new stage for Peckham Festival
Following the fantastic success of the Reclaimed Rye music stage outside The NINES at Peckham Festival 2016, we have responded to popular demand by curating a new live music stage.
Live at Copeland Park will showcase the originality and diversity of the Peckham music scene, there is so much talent here and we can’t wait to bring it to the fore. From established artists to emerging new talent, in age and career – our youngest performer is 10 years old! We want to make this stage accessible to everyone so unlike other London music festivals you won’t need to pay a thing for the full two day programme of acts.
Come along and celebrate Peckham with us! View the full programme below:
