    No line up as yet but I think these people are involved:
    I see a metlaheadz logo and an outlook logo, so there will be drums and there will be bass!


    "Party together by day, go your own way by night at one of our many late-night club sessions.

    Reflecting the many sounds of London and beyond, Sunfall’s music policy will span jazz, electronica, house, hip hop, dubstep, techno, soul, drum & bass and disco."

    Okay, I see how it works
    You pay £55 which gets you in to the day time park festival and you ahve to choose an after party at one of 8 venues, each put on by a different crew (Dimensions, Metalehadz etc etc)

    looks interesting, and it's local - cheers. Not sure I'd wanna do a whole night after being bang on it all day though - which makes it a bit expensive I guess.

    Would like to see the line up. There seems to be a modern trend though: try and flog some tickets first, see what interest is like, then see if you can afford any big names!

    Hah I feel the same way... Daytime is fine but having to commit to a night time session feels a bit much .... Showing my age ;)

    So it's coming back.

    £20 tickets available from 14th Nov.

    They seem to have erased some of the negative comments about long queues, silly drinks buying process, lack of loos and etc from their FB site.

    the brockwell park festivals last summer seemed to be too quiet and with long lines for the bar... Not sure if this was any different.

    Fez909 um...

    might be wrong - a few comments here Sunfall
    i think the council set volume levels.... if you look in the brixton forums here there are lots of posts from residents complaining about noise pollution from music in the park things.

    Im inclined to believe moans like this, as it sounds like me :D

    Hows the ground looking in Brockwell Park? i'm guessing all this rains not going to bode to well for Saturday.

    Have to say yesterday's rain has drained my enthusiasm for this somewhat. Still want to catch Larry Heard though.

    Went to one, maybe this one, a couple of years ago and it was shite - too quiet, searching verging on sexual assault and good djs playing shite festival sets (ie obvious big tunes and boring dj tool bangers)

    ricbake working out how

    Loads of unhappy twitter stuff about 3 hour queues to get in, searches practically "sexual assault" then more queues to get a drink or food #Sunfall Fail!

    It was an absolute shit show.

    We queued from half 2 until about 4, probably weren't even half way and decided to sack it in and go to the pub. Went back at 6 and got in ok, only to find the Bar and toilet queues were huge, a friend queued over an hour for some food!

    Been to dimensions a couple of times so was quite looking forward to this one. Luckily we only paid around £20 for our tickets on early bird, I think they were as much as £55!

    I paid a tenner to a guy near the front of the que and he let me cut in. It was either that or go home.

    It was ridiculous when got in, the place was empty with about 5000 waiting outside.

    These London park festivals are a scam. ​

    Just read that via Twitter Mike and shared it with some mates. An accurate assessment.

    We had tickets for the day only. Got there at 1.30PM full of excitement which very quickly vanished. Started walking to the back of the queue but realised the end wasn't anywhere in sight and it was chaos. Its was good natured at the point but I knew it wasn't going to remain like that. We tried to talk to the staff on the gate but they literally didn't give a shit. Their attitude was disgusting. Especially the female 'manager' who was obnoxious.

    We decided to go to the pub for a couple of hours. Got back and the situation was worse. The police were involved and struggling to control the crowd. They were letting around 500 people at a time rush towards the gate, the staff were rushing those people through. Security checks were non existent but the queue was still stupidly long and now very bored, drunk and restless.

    I decided to jump over and there were many others doing to same. I got caught and chucked out. Was expecting to but the indignation was getting the better of me and I was full of cider too. Tried to explain I had a ticket and the situation was getting dangerous outside.

    Went back to the front to meet up with my crew again and we jumped into the rush of the next 500 the police let threw and got it but was gutted to only catch Roy Ayers final song.

    The tents were half empty as most people were still outside and the volume was really really low. Too low.

    Had a good evening in the end but what a joke.
