We will be on-site from 4th – 26th August 2023.


Outside of our main site, park users will still have access to the rest of the Park, including the sports centre, museum and car park between 4th August and 26th August; however, on show days a one-way system will be implemented in the car park for safety reasons. We will be providing stewards and installing barriers in and near the car park to direct both event-related and regular traffic. We will be using the car park during this time for accessibility ticket holders parking, and taxi and Uber pick up and drop off.


Please see our site perimeter and main production route outlined on the map below (the production route is shared between all events taking place in the park).

There will be crossing points on the trackway to facilitate passage for regular park users. These will be managed by stewards who will be instructed accordingly.

We are working closely with local councils, emergency services, key stakeholders and our contractors with the aim to cause as little disruption as possible to residents and provide safe access to and exit from the site. Traffic routes will be managed by Offsite Traffic Co-ordinators and marshalled by an experienced traffic management company accordingly.

Event attendees are being encouraged to travel by public transport and we have publicised that there is no parking available at the event or in the local area. The planned taxi pickup and drop-off is located within Gunnersbury Park with the aim of minimising traffic in the local area. We are implementing robust crowd management and dispersal plans to help move customers away from the local area towards public transport hubs as safely, and efficiently as possible. It is expected most attendees will arrive and depart from Acton Town Station.

Whilst ticket holders leave the site, the higher volume of people crossing the A406 to get to Acton Town station will likely result in longer waiting times for traffic at these lights. Details regarding our traffic management plans will be agreed upon with the local authority and released in due course.


We anticipate that there will be minimal impact on public transport on event days due to phased arrivals, although it is anticipated that the stations will be slightly busier than normal. The train and tube stations closest to the event will be much busier than normal from approximately 20:30 – 00:00 on the following dates:


  • Friday 11th
  • Saturday 12th
  • Sunday 13th
  • Thursday 17th
  • Friday 18th (TBC)
  • Saturday 19th (TBC)
  • Sunday 20th

Please consider you may need to allow more time for your journey when travelling at these times.

The following stations are expected to be busier than normal:

  • Acton Town
  • Kew Bridge
  • Ealing Broadway
  • South Ealing


We are working with one of the UK’s leading acoustic consultants, Aria Acoustics, who draft and oversee our noise management plan (NMP) and will be on and offsite to monitor sound levels on event days.

In response to feedback from the local community on our 2022 events, we have put forward proposals to the Safety Advisory Group (SAG) and Hounslow and Ealing Councils to mitigate the impact of offsite noise. As part of our plan for 2023, we have proposed a repositioning of the stage, a reduction in offsite noise levels, and earlier engagement with the local community.

There will be agreed volume levels monitored by our acoustic consultants and approved by the local authority. All concerts have a 10:30 pm music curfew.

If you have any noise-related issues or queries at any point during a show or the build period, you can get in touch via the community hotline or dedicated resident email address.


Sound checks will take place on each of the event days prior to opening and may also take place on Thursday 10th August. No sound checks will take place earlier than 10:00 am. More information will be posted on this webpage closer to the event dates.


There will be stewarding directly outside the event and in the surrounding areas, especially during the egress phase. There will be response teams available to respond to any calls made to the community hotline.


We want to be good neighbours and have arranged for additional cleaning in the local area, both within the park and off-site, with additional litter pickers covering a wide range of roads and streets. We will agree on locations for additional toilets to be deployed close to transport hubs.


We will be offering a limited number of complimentary tickets to our events for local residents within our approved catchment area via a ballot system. Please click the link below and fill in the form to apply for tickets. Please note that tickets are not guaranteed, and they are allocated at random.
