JUNCTION 2 FESTIVAL 2022 CANCELLED

We would like to send our most heartfelt thank you for the incredible messages of support and goodwill we have received following the recent cancellation of Junction 2 Festival 2022. No matter what challenges are ahead, we feel overwhelmingly positive when our community stands shoulder to shoulder with us.


The next opportunity for us to all come together will be on 27th & 28th August at Tobacco Dock and fabric and then from 7th - 14th September at ION Festival in Albania. We hope to see as many of you as possible at these events where we can properly show our gratitude for being by our side. We have a crowd that is second to none and we look forward to seeing you all at these.


We are pleased to confirm that many of the artists that were due to play at the festival will be joining us at Tobacco Dock in August. Full lineup will be announced shortly.

FAQS

There is no tube strike action scheduled for 18th and 19th June? I don’t understand why you have cancelled?

That’s correct, there is no tube strike scheduled for Saturday 18th or Sunday 19th June. However due to the size of Junction 2 Festival and the ongoing industrial action, Transport for London (TFL) were unable to guarantee that Cockfosters and its surrounding stations will be adequately staffed this weekend, particularly around the time of the event finishing.

The council felt that they needed a more concrete guarantee on staffing and despite our commitments to resolve the transport challenges, including organising a major fleet of buses and redeployment of significant extra staff to assist with crowd management, the Council revoked our right to occupy the site.

Why are other events happening in London but you are not?

Cockfosters is at the end of the Piccadilly line and as such there is little infrastructure around it to take the pressure off if the underground station was to close. Central London based festivals will be less affected by staff shortages, but it is something that could have a major impact on Trent Park. The move to Trent Park was originally announced in March as a result of delayed redevelopment works to Boston Manor Park.

Why have you cancelled so late?

We received just 1 days notice from Enfield Council and did everything within our power to allow the event to take place. Ticket agents were notified to contact all customers straight after.

Can the festival not be moved to another venue?

With such short notice and a lack of availability, it was impossible to change site and deliver a safe and well operated Junction 2 experience.

To put on an event of this size safely we secure the site months in advance. We then embark on a long and detailed planning process with many different agencies to deliver the event. Green field festivals require all infrastructure (power, water, lighting, toilets etc) being carefully planned and that is before the creative elements are added.

These things can only happen if we know which site we are going to be using, well in advance. We also need to engage with local stakeholders and ensure we have the relevant licensing and travel plans in place; these things take months to plan. It is physically and operationally impossible to relocate to a new site with such short notice.

Why is it not possible to roll my ticket to the next edition of Junction 2?

Following a three year wait for Junction 2 Festival we feel it is only correct for customers to receive a refund rather than for their tickets to be rolled over to the next edition.

What if I have already paid out on travel and accommodation?

We are aware of some customers who were travelling from afar for the festival and have incurred significant accommodation and travel costs. We sadly aren’t in a position to help with recovering these, however we hope you are still able to visit London this weekend. The capital has one of the very best music scenes you will find anywhere in the world, with a tremendous amount to see and do. We hope you are still able to visit and make the most of this amazing city.

Why is the full amount that I paid for the ticket not being refunded?

The face value of the ticket will be automatically refunded, however booking fee policy is determined by the ticket agent only.
