How To Get To The Festival Site
Access to the festival is only from Stratford and Stratford international stations – you won’t be able to get in from Hackney Wick or White Post Lane.
When you're at the station, look out for pink 'Events at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park' signs…they'll get you to the party. And if you miss them, just ask the guys in the purple uniforms to point you in the right direction.
It's about a 30min walk from the station to the festival – think of it as a warm up – get some tunes going and make some friends along the way.
The main entrance is X7 (on Westfield Ave) – so head along Westfield past John Lewis and follow the signs. If you're going to the guest area – your entrance is X5 (on Olympic Park Avenue).
When the party's over and it's time to head back to the station – give yourself plenty of time to make your scheduled train (at least 30mins…it's no quicker on way the back!) and if you're coming on Sunday, remember public transport often finishes earlier – so make sure you check.
When you leave the festival use
• X3 & X4 for Stratford International – Fast Trains to London & Kent
• X7 for Stratford Regional – Central & Jubilee via the stadium route & Overground, National Rail & DLR along Westfield Avenue

Arena Admissions Policy
There will be four stages of music at Wireless Festival.
All tented structures have a set capacity that, by law, we cannot exceed. If there is a particular artist you want to see, you should check their performance time and ensure you are there early, as we cannot guarantee admittance to these areas. Closed-off structures will not be re-opened until after the act has finished. If you cannot get access, we recommend you go and enjoy a performance at an alternative stage.
The main stage is open-air and everyone can be accommodated to watch the acts on this stage.
