All events create a level of noise, which understandably may cause you some concern. However, to reassure you, we have a strong and very experienced independent acoustic management company, that will minimize any disruption and will respond positively to any concerns via our community hotline. They will work closely with the council’s environmental team who will be on site across the weekend. 

The noise specialists will be monitoring points both on-site and at properties closest to the site. They will liaise back with the sound engineering teams on site to ensure we keep below pre-agreed noise levels.

If you are concerned about noise during the event please call the community hotline on 07778 209 621 

During the build period, the event site is a working construction site and will have plant and machinery operating. We will endeavour to keep any disturbance from construction work and vehicle movements to an absolute minimum. 

Details of the time that amplified music will be playing are included within the table below.

Live Event 





We are working with some of the leading security teams in the UK to run a safe and secure event. They are proactive and professional security and will help within the event and in the immediate vicinity too. They will be approachable and friendly. We will have external security response teams - if you have any concerns you can phone our community hotline. We are working with the Police on our security planning in and around the event. 



We understand that people have concerns about public urination so we will be providing toilets outside of the event perimeter as well as inside. 



We have produced a detailed Waste Management Plan and have appointed a dedicated external cleansing team who will be on-site throughout the Build, Break & Live Event. The team of skilled litter pickers will ensure the park and surrounding areas are cleansed after each event day, and more so, after the weekend.  



We are working with Barnet council as we understand that people will be concerned about parking in the local area. There will be plenty of parking space available on site for the event attendees and we are advising event attendees not to park on local roads as we are working with Barnet Council in regards to putting parking restrictions in place for the surrounding roads. More details will be updated closer to the event.


Each year we raise money for a local charity and we raised over £4000 in 2023. We will be raising money this year for these two local charities again: Noah’s Ark Children Hospice and Barnet Young Foundation.


The voice of the local residents and community is important to us, and we want to ensure your views are heard. We understand that you may want to contact us about the event plans and may need to contact us during and after the festival, please refer to the contact details below.
