An extraordinary new field day where music and food will weave together into an exhilarating weekend in the heart of Croydon, one of Britain’s exciting and vibrant boroughs in partnership with Croydon Council. The Ends Festival will be the spotlight of the summer calendar in 2019, taking place in Lloyd Park in South London, Croydon from the 31 May 2019 – 02 June 2019.
The festival kicks off on Friday 31 May with legendary headliner Hip Hop mogul Nas. Nas has clocked over 30 million records worldwide with a career spanning over 20 years which includes hits ‘One Mic’, ‘N.Y. State of Mind’ and ‘If I Ruled the World.'

Wizkid also known as Starboy joins the lineup having rapidly established himself as a world class act. He has collaborated with the likes of Zara Larsson, Kranium, Chris Brown, Wale, Future and the Six God himself, Drake.
