Despite the noise and fear of crime, the Henaught Festival goes on

The Haino Recreation Ground in September hosts weekend Seoul and rave music festivals.

The three festivals scheduled for September 23-25 ​​include soul music on Friday night, rave music on Saturday, and a family-friendly festival on Sunday.

Up to 5,000 people are expected each day, including staff, and the music will end by 10 pm.

The Redbridge License Subcommittee approved the plan after a meeting held at the City Hall last Friday, adding a condition that the toilet-to-person ratio should be 1:70.

Soultasia on Friday, September 23, is expected to attract a “mature audience” featuring soul singers such as Jocelyn Brown and Kenny Thomas.

On Saturday, September 24th, the Moondance x AWOL x Sanborn Festival is expected to captivate young people with drum & bass, house and garage DJs.

The final festival, Raver Tots, has been described as “the biggest and best family-friendly outdoor festival” and has a lineup of house, garage and drum & bass artists.

According to the risk assessment, Saturday’s event has “possible misuse of music, alcohol and drugs, risk of assault and combat” and is rated high risk.

The license document nominates Garage Nation owner James Shadimehr as the festival director and Viking Events as the event manager.

Local councilors Joyce Ryan and Ruth Clark both disagreed with the event, saying they were concerned about the number of people, loud music, crime and disorder.

However, council officials advised the Commission that the event management plan was “sufficient.”

In 2018, four people were stabbed during a brawl in the VIP area of ​​the garage near Heinold Forest Country Park.
