Anti Tout Information

Beware of unauthorised ticket agents and individual re-sellers  (including tickets offered on eBay, Gumtree and Craigslist, Instagram and Facebook and re-sale sites such as Viagogo and Stubhub), buying from them can be a lot of trouble. It’s possible you’ll pay over the odds for a ticket that may have never existed or might never materialise.

If you have been the victim of a ticket scam please report the website to Action Fraud.

We have compiled a guide to avoiding touts and unauthorised websites and agents. We recommend you DO NOT BUY from these sites. We the promoter (Festival Republic) have not supplied any of these sites with any festival tickets and cannot guarantee the authenticity of any tickets they may be offering for sale.  For more information see our Anti Tout Guide.

If you would like confirmation that a website is authorised or not, you can call our information line on 020 7009 3001.

We monitor the internet and do what we can to prevent fraudulent activity but the best way to prevent fraud is to not risk buying from unauthorised sources.

What To Bring

  • A hat, sunscreen, sunglasses, rainwear, woolly jumper/fleece and, of course, your ticket!
  • Bring enough cash and/or a cash card (keep it safe!) – We have many cash machines onsite, all which accept all UK debit cards – some of the machines will also accept all International & credit cards. We also have trained engineers onsite to manage these machines – please ask them for assistance if required. A fee will be charged to use the machines.
  • Bring ID if you look under 21 in order to be admitted to the festival. You will also need ID if you want to buy alcohol and look 21 or under.
  • An empty reusable bottle (no glass) to fill up at the water points.
  • Medication – If you need to bring medication with you, we recommend bringing a doctor’s note or a prescription for it if it is not easily recognisable. We’re not doctors, please be understanding if we question what you’re bringing in as it is important to prevent drugs getting in to the festival.Plus, tell your friends of any allergies you have.

Keeping it Green

We hope you love Finsbury Park as much as we do and want to help us keep it one of London’s favourite green spaces. We are dedicated to reducing the environmental impact of the festival and need your help to make it happen.

We signed the Festival Vision 2025 in 2015 with an industry shared view to reduce our greenhouse emissions by 50% by 2025.

Single use plastic

We have banned single use plastic cutlery at Community and all food stalls use only compostable packaging.

Three bin system

We run a three-bin system at the festival, which means every bin station will be formed by 3 bins:

Compost – When you buy food from the traders at Community Festival, everything your food comes in is compostable so plates, cutlery and napkins can be placed in the compost bins along with the food scraps.  Please make sure NO PLASTIC goes into the compost.

Recycle – Plastic bottles, aluminium cans, newspapers, magazines and clean and dry cardboard (no used greasy pizza boxes as these do not recycle).

General Waste – There should be minimal left over that goes into General Waste.

Last year 5 tonnes each of cups and bottles were returned to our deposit return points – that’s the weight of two African elephants!

Bin Your Butts

Every butt has to be picked up by hand, so it would be awesome if you did not flick your cigarette and put it out before you bin it.

Water

Tap water is free. Please feel free to refill your water bottle at the taps provided.

Security

Security measures are in place, which include metal detectors and sniffer dogs, at all entry gates. Large bags are not allowed to be taken into the festival. There is no cloakroom.

Small bags are allowed into the festival with the dimensions W21cm x H30cm x D8cm. We appreciate your cooperation and patience when entering the festival.
