Lambeth Council has confirmed Field Day will not be returning to Brockwell Park in 2019.

This follows a long dispute between local councillors, festival promoters and residents over two-day, outdoor music festival’s relocation to Brockwell Park from Victoria Park in east London in June.

The move prompted resistance from residents group Brockwell Tranquillity, whose concerns included the loss of green space for locals, overcrowding and ecological damage to the park.

The group was also concerned about the suitability of the park for a music festival, with overcrowding an issue at the 2017 Sunfall Festival, which was held in Brockwell Park.

The festival saw revellers complaining via Twitter that queuing for entry took as long as five hours, with long queues for food, water and toilets.

Field Day attendees also took to Twitter to complain about overcrowding at the main stage – which led to organisers delaying headline act Four Tet’s set.

A Field Day spokesperson said: "We can confirm that we have withdrawn our application to host Field Day at Brockwell Park next year. 2019 will mark an evolution of Field Day and we’ll be revealing more on this very soon."

Earlier this year, Field Day’s application to host a festival at Brockwell Park earlier this year drew strong opposition from Brockwell Tranquillity.

After successfully crowdfunding lawyers to review Lambeth Council’s decision to grant a licence to Field Day earlier this year, the decision was found to be unlawful.

This was because Lambeth Council failed to release documents and information regarding the decision-making process.

But Lambeth Council re-issued the licence with the correct paperwork, and said the initial decision was the result of a “procedural omission.”

The group had begun crowdfunding legal action against Lambeth Council to ensure all money raised from commercial events in parks is spent on the parks, after the money generated from the borough's parks rose by 35 per cent between 2012 and 2017.

Lambeth Council’s 2016 events strategy outlines an aim to hold at least eight events in each of the five “zones” in the borough – Brixton, Streatham, Clapham, North Lambeth and Norwood.
