Where is Wireless Festival Taking Place
Wireless has moved to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park! Click HERE for further information on what's happened since the Olympics left London town!
We're not going to be in the stadium, but in the middle of the Olympic Park! The event arena floor will consist of a combination of grass, pathways and astroturf. We advise customers to prepare for all weather and ground conditions.
To get there, we recommend utilising London Transport. Details of the services available can be found in the sections below. Simply put, make your way to Stratford Station and follow the signs!
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

With no car-parking at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, please plan your travel in advance and know how you will be getting home after a music-filled day.
If your heading to the festival on the Sunday, please be aware that public transport services often finish earlier than usual, so whether you’re on the last Tube, bus, DLR, London Overground or other rail services for central London make sure your check for the last time they leave Stratford.
Soak up the music and enjoy your evening and give about half an hour for getting from the venue onto a train with all the other fans.
