Fans have taken to Twitter to complain about lengthy queues for bars and toilets at gigs at Finsbury Park this weekend (29/30 June.)

The events saw Liam Gallagher and Queens of the Stone headline day long events at at London’s Finsbury Park.

On Friday (29 June) Gallagher took to the stage after a surprise support set from Richard Ashcroft and delighted fans by playing Oasis track ‘D’Yer Wanna Be A Spaceman?’ for the first time since 1996.


Speaking of the crowd after the show, Gallagher tweeted: “There are no words to describe that crowd tnight in Finsbury Park I fucking adore every single 1 of you Live forever LG x”

The shows took place on one of the hottest weekends in the UK this year, with temperatures in the capital reportedly reaching 29C on Saturday.

However, fans have taken to Twitter to complain about facilities at the event including the toilets and bars, which reportedly held lengthy queues throughout the gigs.


One fan tweeted: “Qotsa gig in Finsbury Park is literally the worst gig I’ve ever been to. Security was horrendous, queues for the bar and toilets spanned the entire venue, way too overcrowded. Fucking horrible. Left before they even came on. @FRfestivals you are the absolute worst. Money back pls

Another claimed to have missed the music due to waiting in line at the bar, stating: “The first time I’ve ever left a gig without seeing the band @FRfestivals Finsbury Park for @qotsa was a joke. Queues for a beer or even water over 2 hours!!!!!”

Another fan filmed footage of a queue and posted it to Twitter with the caption, “The whole place is a giant queue for the bar. 1hr to get a drink on a hot day, have missed half of the sets whilst queuing.”

Today, (1st July,) the park will host Community Festival, with acts including Two Door Cinema Club, The Vaccines and Circa Waves hitting the stage.
