  • "BiggerH perhaps you should ask the festival organisers about security and if everyone was searched on entry.
    At the Pride fesitval this year, everyone was searched and bags searched.
    I understand a number of weapons were seized.
    This story happens to be about the grass which is a story in itself."

Shakedown Festival creates a mud-bath in Stanmer Park

The Argus: Shakedown Festival creates a mud-bath in Stanmer Park Shakedown Festival creates a mud-bath in Stanmer Park

This was the scene at Stanmer Park, Brighton, yesterday following the weekend’s Shakedown Festival.

More than 19,500 people flocked to the event to see the likes of Katy B and Dizzee Rascal performing.

However, concerns have been raised about the speed of the clear-up with rain over the past two days turning parts of the site into a mud-bath.

Festival bosses have said that they will be off site later today once groundworks have been carried out.

A spokesman for the festival said: “Unfortunately the weather wasn’t good during the set up of the festival and was not ideal at points during the day.

"We will be off site as of tomorrow and a road sweep is being conducted first thing Thursday morning. We’d ask for patience with the reinstatement of grass due to the time of year and the inclement weather.”
