A nineties music festival has plans to come to Croydon for the second summer running. 

Made in 90s Festival wants to run for two days in July with hopes of attracting up to 3,000 revellers.

The festival has applied for a licence to take over Addington Park over the weekend of July 29.

It wants to play music and serve alcohol between 1pm and 10pm.

The park was used by the festival, which markets itself as being for over 28s, last summer.

The park was used by another festival Garage Nation in 2021, which locals said was a “complete disaster”.

Tickets are already on sale for the festival, starting at £25. The ticket site says: “Were you born in the late 80s/ early 90s and looking for a mature and classy event for like minded, mature people?

"Look no further!  We will take you on a musical journey, playing your favourite 80s/90s Dancehall, R’n’B & Hip Hop classics, with a touch of New Skool!”

Croydon Council’s licensing committee met to discuss the application on Friday (April 14).

Members heard from Charles Marriott, vice chair of the Addington Village Residents Association, said last year’s event was “hugely successful” from the perspective of residents.

He said: “Our main concern is the protection of the property and heritage sites and the fact that the previous year was a complete disaster but I am very happy to report that last year we had very good communication with Made in 90s and were able to make all our representations.”

This year, Made in 90s wants has increased the number of people it wants a licence for from 2,000 up to 3,000.

Mr Marriott added that with the increased numbers hopes there would be more security and the council would cone off the road again to stop parking.

Delroy Edwards from the festival said it would be throwing a party for residents on the Friday before the event to say thank you.

He told the meeting  a traffic management plan was being drawn up with the council to ensure there were no parking issues which were experienced at the previous festival by another company in 2021.

Mr Edwards said emails will be sent out before the event telling them not to drive and warning their cars could be towed away if they park on residential roads that will be closed off.

A decision on the licence will be made by Croydon Council in the coming week.
