Residents info


  • We love Upminster, we work in Upminster all day, every day. We respect our local area and we ask our festival guests to respect the area, our residents and our neighbours by leaving We Are FSTVL quietly and politely.

    Resident Tickets

    Regarding resident tickets they are allocated on a location based system to those directly affected by road closures. In order to apply please send an email to with subject line marked “resident tickets”

    Please include your full name / full address as well as a scanned valid proof of address such as utility bill / driving licence/ bank statement dated within the last 3 months.

    Once we have assessed whether your address is eligible we will then allocate your ticket approximately 2 weeks before the show.

    Please note these tickets are for personal use only by the specified resident who has applied and lives within the eligible area. This resident must be over 18 years old and will need to present a valid photographic ID + valid E-Ticket on the day of the festival. All E-Tickets cannot be re-sold on the secondary market. Anyone found to be re-selling their ticket will risk their ticket being cancelled and will be refused entry into the festival site.

    All resident ticket requests must be received by 5th May - after this point there is no guarantee of ticket allocation.

    Traffic Management / Road Closures

    All the latest information regarding traffic management and road closures will be updated in due course on this page so please check back for the latest information.

    As always we are committed to providing you with as much advanced information as possible and should you have any questions in the meantime then please feel free to contact us at
