PRESS REVIEWS 2019
LITTLE INDIE BLOG: 08+09/04/19
'And as the final note fades, you can see by the expressions on faces that this new one-day festival has been something special. Bring on Cro Cro '20.'
GET IN HER EARS: 08+15/04/19
'It was like a huge family gathering, filled with all the most life-affirming vibes and, of course, the best live music.'
POPPED MUSIC: 10/04/19
'Arguably, this is Croydon’s biggest festival to have happened in years and with a line up packed with variation and flavour; from the cult psych punk of The Lovely Eggs to the soulful bombast of Bang Bang Romeo, there was truly something for everyone to have a bite of!'
BRIGHTON & HOVE NEWS: 10/04/19
'I think the organisers can congratulate themselves on a very successful first festival. They curated a very interesting and quite diverse line-up, and I look forward to next year’s bash!'
CROYDON COUNCIL: 12/04/19
'The day was brilliant and there was a fantastic energy within the venue and I very much hope we’ll be welcoming them back next year.'
Councillor Oliver Lewis, cabinet member for culture, leisure and sport
'The bands were excellent, the venue was sold out and perhaps most importantly of all the vibe was one of the friendliest, most inclusive and happiest of any event I’ve been to in a long while. Here’s looking forward to CroCroLand 2.'
'From indie-rockers The Lovely Eggs and punk-rockers Werecats, to riot-grrrls Bugeye and Blood Red Shoes' alt-rock, to rock'n'soul popsters Bang Bang Romeo and punks The Weird Things, every musical style under rock's umbrella was represented.'
THE ZINE UK: 17/04/19
'It’s definitely accurate to say, the music scene in Croydon has been reawakened, all thanks to CroCroLand Festival creators; Angela and Julia.'
THE CROYDONIST: 17/04/19
'There was not a wink of the day without a tune, it really was a truly special event with an incredibly diverse line and attention to detail.'
TRAVELLERS TUNES: 29/04/19
'The setup of CroCroland should be the blueprint for all aspiring promoters. Intimate, in your face and firesome acts!'
LONDON IN STEREO: 30/04/19
'I left with one overarching thought: for the first outing of any festival to circumnavigate the issues (queues, gender imbalance, queues) that other, more established, events suffer from is impressive enough. Cro Cro Land did all that, and they did it with rainbow cake.'
