Event Build/Break: We will be on-site at the park from 21st June – 14th July 2022

Sound Checks: Sound checks will take place on each of the event days prior to opening and also on Thursday 30 June. No sound checks will take place earlier than 10:00am Tuesday to Saturday or 11:00am on Sunday. Sound checks will not be at maximum event levels and although they may last an hour or two, tests will be carried out in short intervals.


Outside of our main site, the community will still have access to the rest of the Park, including to the Brown & Green Café, the Dinosaurs and the National Sports Centre (NSC). Some routes through the park will temporarily be closed during our events, and signage will be posted in the park that identifies alternative routes. We are also working with the NSC to minimise impact and disruption to visitors on live event days. For more details, please visit their site:


We have been working closely with various organisations, local authorities and emergency services with the aim to cause as little disruption as possible to residents and provide safe access and exit from the site. Traffic routes will be managed by Offsite Traffic Co-ordinators and marshalled by an experienced traffic management company accordingly.

Our shows are non-parking. To minimise attendees parking in the local area and maintain resident & business parking, there will be some resident-only access road closures in place on the 1st – 3rd July and on the 9th July. These roads will be accessible for residents only, and they will need to show this letter and/or proof of address such as a utility bill or driving licence. It is very important that residents have this letter with them, or other proof of address as noted above, to show to traffic marshals on the days of the road closures in order to gain access. We appreciate that you may have scheduled visitors or deliveries that need access to your road or businesses. Please advise visitors arriving via car to state your full name and address to the traffic marshals, who will also be briefed to ensure delivery vehicles are allowed access either with a branded vehicle or by showing proof of delivery. It is anticipated that these residents’ access only road closures will be in place from 10:00 to 23:30 each of these days. They will be staffed and managed by an experienced traffic management company.

There are additional parking restrictions and bay suspensions in place to facilitate the traffic management plan. Those residents with Zone D Permits for Anerley Hill are asked to park at Ledrington Road on the 1st – 3rd July. There will be a towing removal service in place on the 1st-3rd July to relocate any vehicles to Ledrington Road that are in contravention. If you are not a permit holder but reside in Anerley Hill, please can you send your vehicle registration and your address to [email protected] no later than 17:00 on Wednesday 29th June so that we may pass your details on to allow you to park in Ledrington Road. Please note that parking on Ledrington Road is available on a first come first served basis.

Parking Restrictions

Parking restrictions will be in place on roads surrounding the park on the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 9th July. Please refer to local signage that will be installed in advance of the event for more details on localised parking restrictions.

In collaboration with surrounding boroughs, there will be dedicated patrols through the areas that surround the park monitoring and enforcing illegal and unsafe parking on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd July with a towing vehicle in operation on the 9th July.

There will be no restrictions in place for events on the 6th and 7th July however there will be road closures of Crystal Palace Station Car Park and Crystal Palace Park access road at the junction of Ledrington Road.


We anticipate that there will be minimal impact on public transport throughout the day due to phased arrivals although the stations may be slightly busier than normal. The train stations nearest the event will be much busier on Friday 1st, Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd July from approx. 20:30 – 00:00. We would advise people allow more time when travelling at these times. All necessary provisions will be made to facilitate access for locals.

To aid the safe egress of guests, Crystal Palace Bus station will be closed and bus diversions will be in place for south-bound buses that serve Anerley Hill from 20:00 on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd July. Bus routes affected are:

Route 157 towards Croydon

From Crystal Palace Bus Station, right Crystal Palace Parade, ahead Crystal Palace Parade, right Westwood Hill, right Crystal Palace Park Road, ahead High Street Penge, right Croydon Road and ahead Croydon Road to line of route.

Routes 249 and 432 to terminate at Crystal Palace Bus station

The route 354 diversion is necessary as the expected congestion on egress at Thicket Road and Anerley Park is expected to be very high for the Station access.

All buses on diversion will serve stops on diversion if requested.

A designated private taxi / Uber pick up point has been identified and planned for 2022 and will be located in Meaford Way. We will work with all taxis and local operators to minimise the impact of collections on local residents.


We are working with one of the UK’s leading acoustic consultants, Vanguardia, who draft and monitor our noise management plan (NMP). Further to feedback and learnings from 2021, and following extensive discussions with the Local Authority, our NMP for 2022 includes reduction to the maximum music noise levels by 5dB, which will mean substantial reductions to the off-site sound levels.


As part of our NMP, there will be a detailed vibration monitoring programme in 2022 with locations being monitored and reported as we have done for sound.


There will be ample security directly outside the event and in the surrounding areas. You will see both a stationery and roaming presence in the roads immediately adjacent to the festival site. There will also be response teams available to respond to any calls made to the community hotline.


We want to be good neighbours and have made arrangements 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 have also arranged for additional toilets to be deployed in prominent areas around the park and at main transport hubs and routes.


Via our Community Liaison Coordinator, we are very happy to speak to you about any concerns or queries you may have in the coming weeks and during the event. You can contact us via email at [email protected].
