A noise management plan has been prepared in coordination with our noise management team to minimise noise nuisance to residents. The noise team will be on site throughout the duration of the live event, to monitor noise levels off site. The consultants will be in contact with the Production Manager and Sound Engineers and will be able to respond to noise nuisance issues should they occur and take remedial action, such as instructing the engineers to reduce the overall volume or adjust specific frequencies. Consultants will also monitor agreed points adjacent to residential properties, ensuring that the levels agreed with the Local Authority are not exceeded.

If you experience any nuisance caused by noise during the event, please call the Residents Noise Hot Line Number 02081911084 – This will be staffed during show hours.


There is a strict traffic management plan put in place by CTM Traffic Management, minimising disturbance caused by production vehicles when entering the site. 

During the live days, there will be an increase in traffic, particularly on Friday 19th August and Monday 22nd August as the majority of people arrive and leave from the festival. We are working with the road teams to put a robust plan in place and minimise traffic on the local roads. Further information will be available on this in due course when plans are signed off with the council. 


Security at the event will be provided by In House Security who have considerable experience with large scale events. SIA Security, Stewards & Traffic Marshals will be used outside of the festival perimeter at key crossing points to direct attendees safely towards the queue lanes of the entrance. SIA Security will also be positioned in key locations across the estate to direct traffic and prevent guests leaving on foot. 


Binn Group Waste Management will be responsible for clearing and removing all litter produced during the event. 98% of all waste is recycled. In addition to removing the waste onsite, they’ll sweep perimeter areas both pre and post show to ensure the site is left clear.

Particular attention will be paid to the external areas of the event with regards to glass that attendees may bring onto the estate prior to accessing the festival. Litter Pickers on the exterior of the site will be equipped with pickers, bin bags and wheelie bins. We will also deploy wheelie bins near the taxi, bus and car pick points and queueing lanes.
