    My guess is that they will turn it into a multi day affair with a smaller footprint.

    still not going to break even. they couldn't fill the Field Day site for even 1 day.

    It felt like they didn't really need all that space and that the festival could have perhaps worked in a smaller site, which may work better for everyone.

    they didn't even have all that space, the entire barn / Four tet crush area was closed off for MH, that area held thousands. still think shrinking it down further for a small target audience won't be profitable with Lambeth's new hardon for superfences and all the rest of it.

    Not surprised its decided that its not going to work out after 1 year, the fact there was no music on the huge outdoor main stage after about 8pm was ludicrous, no wonder the tents were dangerously busy.

    Saturday was horrible. I felt genuinely scared in the crush by the barn.

    Apparently it's north, not a park, never been used for a festival before and the closest residence is over 1km from the nearest stage.

    A review of the Event Strategy has now appeared in the Lambeth Fwd Plan.

    Fancy that.

    I've heard that, apparently due to a simple oversight, this only looks at Major Events. Events of up to 20K, numbers of which are unlimited, are not being reviewed. For context, Global's festivals failed to hit 20k on at least one of its days and Hoopla will be applying for under 20 on two of its days.
