A refund for Finsbury Park Concerts

0 have signed. Let’s get to 2,500!

This petition is for anyone who attended the Liam Gallagher or Queen of the Stone Ages Concerts in Finsbury Park on 29 or 30 June, who would have found queues that were far beyond acceptable for the bars, water fountains, and toilets; overcrowding and dangerous crowd management; extremely poor sound quality.

Festival Republic are the organisers of these concerts and are ultimately responsible for ensuring the concerts deliver what was advertised, attendees’ safety and welfare. However, it was clear that the organisers had not properly prepared for the amount of people who attended resulting in a series of highly concerning issues...

Amidst a heatwave, festival go-ers were subjected to hours of queueing to get to the bars, which meant many of us missed performances that formed the entire premise for why we were there. The same can be said for the water fountains too.

The toilet facilities were insufficient and again commanded extensive queues.

The sound quality for the concerts was far below par, with sound cutting out and sound which did not carry to the far reaches of crowds standing watching (you had over 50,000 people there!)

The only (very small) exit that you planned to channel all crowds through was clearly not appropriate and this proved true with crowd control issues, trampling, just overall dangerous crowd management. 

These concerts were dangerous, wholly inadequate and issues still have not been addressed. We demand a refund in compensation for such a terrible and frightening experience.
