Citadel Festival 2017
This event has been and gone.
London’s brightest new festival, Citadel has carved out its own, unique place in the music calendar. Aiming to deliver the ultimate summer Sunday with a combination of live music, good quality food and drink and unforgettable experiences, for one day of the year Citadel transforms Victoria Park into a sun-drenched utopia.
Marking the beginning of the countdown to 2017’s edition, Citadel has announced a massive headliner and a UK festival exclusive in the form of Foals. The quintet from Oxford have, over the past few years, become one of the greatest live acts on the scene thanks to their crowd-conquering sets, which have seen them headline festivals across the world.
This headlining set will serve not only as the epic culmination to what has been a whirlwind 12 years for Foals, but as a defining musical moment of the summer.
Joining Foals is one of the masters of modern electronic music, Bonobo, fresh from the release of his latest album, Migration. Also joining the Citadel bill are the critically-acclaimed, Mercury Prize-nominated Wild Beasts, who will be delivering their eccentric brand of indie rock a twist. Citadel are also delighted to welcome the prolific folk artist Laura Marling. The multi award-winning musician is scheduled to release her highly-anticipated sixth album, Semper Femina, in 2017 so expect new material and old favourites from her set.
Elsewhere, there’s Australian singer-songwriter RY X, fast-rising US artist Maggie Rogers - who was propelled from anonymity after a video of an awestruck Pharrell listening to one of her tracks at an NYU Masterclass went viral - NYC brass-led band Lucky Chops, folk duo Hudson Taylor and Irish pop-rock trio Picture This and many more!
