Wireless heads to Crystal Palace Park

Early July was too much of a worry for us in the government’s timing out of lockdown and we really wanted to ensure Wireless could happen this year. Unfortunately we couldn’t make it work in Finsbury Park in September but we can in the beautiful Crystal Palace Park!



The government are not mandating vaccination so it won’t be mandatory at Wireless Festival, but we will be testing to ensure those without vaccination are Covid clear before they enter the festival.

Wireless Festival is not suitable for young children. Children under 5 (aged 4 or below) are not permitted.

Children under 16 years old (aged 5 -15) must be accompanied by a parent or guardian (18 or over) at all times and will need a full-price ticket.
