Festival Profile: Citadel Festival 2018

Name:  Citadel Festival 

Where:  Brockwell Park, London 

When:   Sunday 15 July 

Having upped sticks, Citadel Festival will itself find a new home in Brockwell Park for 2018’s edition. This sees Citadel move away from its home for three years in East London’s Victoria Park.


Clenching the all-important headline spot for this year’s Citadel Festival are Australian psych-rockers Tame Impala who will bring a UK-exclusive set to South London this July. They are joined by a once again brilliant lineup which sees CHVRCHES, Leon Bridges, Fat White Family, The Horrors, La Femme, Honne, Shame, Sea Girls, Goat Girl and more head to the one-dayer. With more names yet to be announced there’s no doubt that this year’s edition will be one of the best yet.

Former Glories:

In its short, four-year, history the festival has already seen some huge acts play its stages. Kicking off its first year with Bombay Bicycle Club’s second last show, Ben Howard, Kurt Vile & The Violators, Honeyblood, Leon Bridges, as well as the likes of Sigur Rós, Caribou, Lianne La Havas, Nataniel Rateliff and Battles taking over the 2016 edition.
