Huge music festival set to takeover city of Canterbury

City Sound Project (CSP) returns later this month, after the festival’s six-year hiatus.

The event will take place throughout the city of Canterbury, across the bank holiday weekend of May 25th to 26th.

With over 120 artists, 16 stages and 10 venues, CSP organisers say this is set to be Kent’s biggest party of the year.

CSP first started in 2012, and gained popularity in the South-East, presenting high quality performances from big names in the UK music scene.

In 2018, CSP had seemingly wrapped up on their projects, and further announced their final festival.

With the festivals return, artist’s such as My Nu Leng, Charlie Boon, Abbie McCarthy, and more are all set to perform across the weekend.

“City Sound Project is one of those events i’ve heard so much about but never had the ability to experience,” he said.

“It used to be Canterbury’s most anticipated annual event, so to be a part of it’s return this year is a real honour.

“Not only am I super excited to be DJing myself, but I can’t wait to see the spectacle of talented DJ’s and musicians taking over the other venues.

“From grass roots to festival headliners, it really is Canterbury’s best stage for showcasing talent.”

It is estimated that around 3000 people will be in attendance, with tickets flying out the door.

CSP’s recent event ‘CSP in the Park’ saw Dane John Gardens filled to the brim, setting up perfectly for the main event.

However, CSP is not stopping there.

Labelled as “the last dance before City Sound Project”, CSP will be hosting an alleyway day party at The Cuban on Saturday 11th May.
