The organisers intend to have the site clear by Friday 30th August. During this time there will be HGV entering the park via the entrance opposite Rackhouse Road, which is the concert production entrance.

There will be an increased number of people and vehicles in the area on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th August. The organisers have worked with Transport for Greater Manchester and Manchester City Council to produce a robust traffic plan.

Traffic Orders will be in place on the roads surrounding the park and resident parking only signage will be install. Manchester City Council have enforcement officers in the area around the park from 10:00 across the weekend and a tow truck will be in operation.

All customers have been informed that parking on residential streets is prohibited. On Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th August the tram will have an enhanced service before, during and after the concert.

There is a city centre shuttle bus via Sale and several park-and-ride options.

Cycling to the concert is encouraged, there is a secure bike park, which has security and CCTV. There are a limited number of concert car park spaces inside the park, all tickets must be bought in advance.

All bus routes will run as normal.

The Metrolink service is likely to be busier than usual travelling to the park between 14:00 and 20:00 and travelling to Manchester between 22:00 and 00:00, during these times there is an enhanced tram service around Wythenshawe Park. Baguley + Wythenshawe tram stop will be closed on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th of August from 21:00 onwards.

The organisers have engaged with a Noise Management consultant to plan the orientation of the stage to have minimal impact on the local area. The stage is orientated toward the M56. Noise monitoring will take place whilst the concert is live to ensure the noise levels are compliant with the premise licence.

During the build and de-rig of the concert, staff have a sperate area to park their vehicles.
The hard-standing car park will still be available for general park users. There is a separate dedicated car park for concert attendees to use on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th August.

The organisers have a dedicated team, who will focus on litter picking not only within the concert arena, but the wider park and the roads surrounding the park; with a particular focus on Moor Road.

Any damage to the park caused by the concert will be reinstated at the expense of the concert. Park stake-holders and the local community. The organisers have met with several community stake-holder to inform them of their plans.

The concert is setting up a community trust fund where local organisations and community groups can apply for funding, more information on how to apply will be available on this website from September.
