London's Sunfall Festival under fire for "dangerous" five-hour queues

Reports severe delays and queue crushes have been flooding social media.

South London’s Sunfall Festival descended into chaos earlier today (August 12) with reports “dangerous” queues up to five hours flooding social media.

Festival-goers at the Brockwell Park event described scenes crowd crushes with police having “to enforce crowd control” as people stampeded barricades in the thousands-deep queue.

One fan witnessed “fighting” as revellers grew increasingly frustrated, while another said they felt “lucky to be alive” after the crush, adding: “Organizers should be extremely concerned.”

Many ticket-holders are calling for refunds to be issued.

The festival tweeted a brief statement in response that said “for everyone’s health and safety, heightened security/search measures have been put in place. This is causing some delay on entrance.”

It also assured that “additional resources” would be “put in place to try and speed up the entry process.”

Now in its second year, the electronic music festival boasts a day and night programme that this year includes performances from Larry Heard, Ben UFO, Helena Hauff, DJ Bone, Theo Parrish and more. Sunfall is organized by the same team behind XOYO, Phonox, Camden Assembly and Croatia festivals Outlook and Dimensions.

FACT has reached out to a Sunfall Festival representative for comment.
