The tenth Garden Party at the Crystal Palace Bowl in South London takes place on Saturday (noon to 8pm). Santana top the bill, and the U.S. of A. also provides the highly-acclaimed Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, who are bringing along the delectable Ronnie Spector. Elvis Costello and the Attractions head the British contingent, which also includes Brand X (with Phil Collins) and Crawler.
The Palace Bowl has a 15,000 capacity, and there should be some tickets still available on the day at £5.30 each.
If you don't fancy the Bowl bill, there's a reggae feast at the Rainbow, where the near-legendary Big Youth and his band are appearing, together with another top Jamaican name, Dennis Brown. As well as Saturday, this colourful show is also at the same venue on Thursday and Friday.
