While thousands of people will be having fun at the festival, for those living in the area around the festival site – King George V Playing Field in Cosham – the event brings a high noise volume and a huge increase in visitors.

The festival site is closed at midnight each day, with many festival-goers heading to the event campsite in Farlington.

What are the rules on alcohol?

All visitors to the festival must be at least 18 years old, with ID being checked by security at the festival entrance.

Alcohol is not allowed to be bought onto the site, but there are bars inside that people can buy alcohol (and non-alcholic drinks) from.

What are the noise limits?

As was the case with Mutiny (the event’s predecessor), the event should not exceed 90 decibels between 10am and 11pm one metre from any 'noise sensitive premises.'

And between 11pm and midnight it should not go over 66 decibels.

Promoters will have to 'aim to comply' with noise restrictions at the new event rather than face having their licence revoked if they fail to meet them, the same condition that was set for its predecessor Mutiny Festival since 2017.
