The organisers of Crystal Palace Festival have announced the dates for this year's event.
The four day Crystal Palace Overground Festival will take place from Thursday June 27 until Sunday June 30, and will include a range of free events across various festival hubs, including performing arts, crafts, holistic and sports activities, as well as live music.
The festival which first ran in 2007, will also have DJs and food as well as an ale and cider festival.
An estimated 4,500 people attended last years event and organisers are calling on the community to get involved.
Noreen Meehan, festival director said: "The festival has been growing each year with more and more visitors and volunteers but we need help to ensure its future.
"Our local businesses have done an amazing job of supporting the festival so far but funding is getting tighter in the current climate of cuts and continuing economic woes.
"Our festival is special and helps our community come together as one so it’s important that it continues. If you can help with fundraising, grants or would like to sponsor or advertise with the festival, then do get in touch and help make the festival even bigger and better in 2013."
