Tickets are being put on pre-sale for a three day music festival planned for Gunnersbury Park this September.

The event, which is being dubbed Gunnersville, is organised by Festival Republic and does not yet have an agreement with the Community Interest Company which manages the park. They say a community engagement exercise and a consultation will take place before it takes place.

The stage area will be on the south eastern are of the park which was formerly a cricket pitch. The estimated attendance each day is estimated to be 12,000.

It will take place from 6-8 September and there is a potential option for two further concerts the following weekend.

Acts being featured include The Specials, Ocean Colour Scene, Doves and You Me At Six. Also performing will be the likes of Jimmy Eat World, Deaf Havana, Sundara Karma and General Roots.

The event would be licensed with a number of bars and food stalls serving the concert goers.

The Lovebox Festival which is due to take place again in the park on 12-13 July raised a number of concerns with residents last year including issues with noise, waste disposal and public order.

Earlier this year a planned animatronic Ice Age event in the park after the organisers failed to gain the necessary permissions. The organisers of Gunnersville have allowed more time for any of their applications to get through the planning process.
