A free-to-enter festival, City Sound Project (CSP) in the Park, is finally set to make its return this bank holiday weekend, following a 5 year hiatus.

CSP in the Park, will see Dane John Garden’s host a weekend of music, food and family friendly entertainment

The festival will feature a Main Stage and Igloo, with talent from Reece Kohler, Fat Brass, DJ Moja and many more across the 2 days.

Dylan Salter, a local DJ, appears on Sunday and has expressed his excitement over this opportunity.

“I’m really looking forward to it, the event promises to showcase the best of Canterbury’s music scene and create unforgettable memories,” he said.

“I am excited to join the crowd and experience the magic of City Sound Project first hand and being able to showcase my DJ skills.

“This is definitely an event I did not want to miss.”

Although festival prices have risen, CSP in The Park aims to maintain the same high quality production, whilst being free-to-enter.

People can expect multiple stages of music, including a main stage and a giant inflatable igloo

Lee Suter, from City Sound Project, has been continuously working on this event, looking to kick-start your summer with bang.

“With the dire rise in the cost of living, many are unable to afford luxuries like concerts and festivals this summer,” he said.

“We have taken it upon ourselves to bring back CSP in The Park, a free-to-enter and family friendly arts and music festival in the heart of Canterbury city.”

“People can expect multiple stages of music, including a main stage and a giant inflatable igloo, showcasing internationally recognised talent.”

“We have licensed bars on site and a multitude of Kent’s street food favourites and we can’t wait to welcome everyone back!”

There will also be a wide selection of food available to choose from, with food traders such as Rad Burger, Mexitaco Burrito and (N)ice Cream all set up throughout the venue.

Additionally, Vegan options will be available.

CSP in The Park are welcoming any and all donations, that will go towards helping them tackle rising costs and continue to produce high quality events at a free-to-enter price.
