Its three stages across Fairfield Halls in Croydon reflect society at large and Cro Cro Land is a gathering of great music and minds because of this.

Other bands announced include Black feminist punk band Big Joanie, English rock outfit Bang Bang Romeo, experimental alt-rock band Wooze, post-punk pop duo Fraulein, and indie disco 4-piece Bugeye, whose lead singer Angela Martin is also the curator and director of the festival, alongside her partner, The Croydonist editor, Julia Woollams.
Angela Martin says: “After a series of setbacks due to the pandemic, we are so excited to be able to bring Cro Cro Land Festival back to our hometown of Croydon. We have created a line-up that is more reflective of the society we live in, and of the diversity and gender balance that exists in guitar music but still seems to be missing on other bills. This is the first of our line-up announcements and we couldn’t be happier with the wealth of talent already in place.”
