SUBSTANCE POLICY

Drugs are illegal and strictly prohibited on site. We will be conducting thorough entry searches, and anybody found in possession of controlled substances will be refused admission without refund and handed over to the police. Whilst we uphold a zero tolerance policy, should anybody begin to feel unwell as a result of substance misuse, we urge them to contact our specially-trained staff without fear of judgement. There will be an onsite welfare facility as well as a designated medics room, where our staff can assist people with issues such as substance awareness, mental health and any other issues. They also support people with existing health conditions who wish to attend but may find they need additional support.

FACILITIES ON SITE

MEDICAL AND WELFARE

If at any point during the event you feel that you or anybody else needs medical assistance, please make your way to Welfare to seek help immediately. Our qualified medical team will be on hand to help, whether you or any of your friends feel unwell, or even if you just need to escape the crowd for a time out. To locate the Welfare area, have a look at the event map, keep your eyes peeled for signage which will be up and about across the site, or ask any member of staff who will be more than happy to assist.

LOCKERS

We were fortunate enough to have glorious weather for the last 3 years. And whilst we remain eternally optimistic about a repeat performance this year, early June holds no guarantees in regards to the weather. Even sunny days can see a drop in temperature after nightfall. Lockers will be available for hire on the day for storing extra layers of clothing and valuable items.

Key deposits – These are £10 and can be paid in cash.

Sizes – Lockers are £6.00 for a small one (25cm x 30cm x 45cm) and £9.00 for a large one (45cm x 30cm x 45cm). You can fit around 3-4 normal sized jackets in a small one. Bargain! 

Valuables & phones – Because you can access your stuff whenever you like using your own key, it is advisable to lock your mobile phone and wallet away rather than carrying in your bag or pocket, unfortunately pick pockets are yet again targeting London clubbers

On exit – There will be no queue to get your stuff out of your locker but there may be a very quick queue to get a refund for your key deposit.

FOOD & DRINK

No food can be taken into J2. There will be a wide-variety of food traders catering to all dietary requirements, including vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options. We hand pick suppliers who share our environmental and sustainable values. Whilst we acknowledge there is still room for improvement, we take pride that our food vendors are increasingly sourcing their products responsibly. 

We will be serving a variety of cocktails, draught beer and coffee. Free water is available at dedicated water points next to bars (or from bar staff on smaller bars). You are allowed to bring your reusable bottle in, but please make sure it’s empty before you reach the entrance as we don’t allow any liquids in.

REUSABLE CUPS

We are genuinely trying to reduce our environmental impact. Therefore drinks are now served in reusable cups. You pay a deposit of 1 token per cup at the bar and swap your dirty cup for a clean cup with each new drink. Get your £1 back at the main tokens desk before 22:15. Get more information at the bars and info point.

CIGARETTES

Cigarettes will be available for purchase at the Info Point.

LOST PROPERTY

If you find or lose anything, head straight down to the Info Point where all lost property will be taken to and logged in. After the event, if you realise you have misplaced something (let’s face it, we’ve all been there) then drop an email to lost@lwe.events. Lost property is stored for 30 days after the event so don’t hang about.

PHONE CHARGING

There are no phone charging facilities at J2, please ensure you arrive with your device sufficiently charged.

MOBILE PHONE THEFTS

It’ll come as no surprise that phone thieves and pickpockets target large events. Please be super careful with your bags and phones and follow the advice below:

  •       Do NOT put your phone in your back pocket.
  •       Do NOT put your phone in your bag unless you know it is safe from pickpockets. Remember that thieves are highly skilled at opening zips and clasps.
  •       Do NOT hand your phone to a stranger to take a photo of you and your friends.
  •       People will be searched at random as they exit should we receive any reports of mobile phone theft and a corresponding description of a potential thief.

·       It your mobile phone does happen to be stolen, the only way we can do our best to help you is if you can give us a description of the thief and the location of the theft in as much detail as possible. Please report any theft to Welfare and they will do their best to help.

CASH MACHINES

There are plenty of cash machines on site – have a look at the event map to locate them.

TOILETS

“A toilet experience like no other, very impressed indeed.”

Loowatt’s multi-award winning loos don’t use water or chemicals, nor are they composting. Instead, they use a biodegradable film to create a waterless flush and the waste gets transformed into energy:

– Highest level of hygiene and comfort
– Waterless flush: chemical-free and sustainable
– Proper sinks and mirrors
– Free access to our styling area for ticket holders only (hair dryers, straightners, styling products)
– Learn more about Loowatt’s work in Madagascar.

 

We highly recommend booking in advance as these will go quick: https://bit.ly/2yVf1M3

This will consist of branded t-shirts, hoodies (with and without zips), sweaters, caps, and more.

DISABLED ACCESS  

Junction 2 promotes equality of opportunity for people of all abilities, and to provide fair and equal access to live music.

This guide is designed to inform everybody who comes to Junction 2 what to expect before you arrive at the event. The event is situated in an outdoor space of Boston Manor Park in London. We hope that this information gives you the chance to familiarise yourself with the venue and our procedures, so that you get the most out of your day and have the most enjoyable time.

PERSONAL ASSISTANCE TICKETS

We provide free personal assistant tickets if you wish to purchase a ticket to Junction 2 and you require a personal assistant to attend with you. All you need to do is contact us at info@junction2.london and send a copy of your ticket or a confirmation e-mail, and the name, surname and e-mail address of your assistant. Please also send through your proof of disability document (photo/scan by email) which can include current Disabled Living Allowance document, PIP (or equivalent) or Evidence that registered severely sight impaired (blind)

Your personal assistant will then be sent a barcoded guest ticket which they will need to provide on entrance to the festival. Don’t be alarmed if the ticket doesn’t come through immediately – we usually collate all the information up until the day before the event and only then send the guest tickets out.

Please be aware, that a large part of the festival is set on grass. The ground may get soft and muddy in case of wet weather on the day or ahead of the event. We understand that this makes it particularly difficult for wheelchair users, hence we will offer a free ticket to a person accompanying you even if you don’t require assistance due to your medical condition.

CUSTOMER JOURNEY

ENTRANCE

Once you crossed the park gates, the tarmac road will lead you underneath the motorway bridge to the queueing lanes. This tarmac road turns into an uneven hardstanding path. Whilst we don’t anticipate long queuing time, if you find it difficult to stand for long or feel uncomfortable in a dense crowd, please ask any of our security or stewarding staff for assistance.   

Once you’ve been searched by our security team, you will be handed in a booklet which contains set times and a festival map.

MEDICINES

There will be a medic at the end of the search lanes at all times. If you need to bring any medicines, food or drink to manage a medical condition, or medical equipment you are welcome to do so. Please email to outline your requirements and we will ensure our staff are briefed and introduce you to our medical team.

LOCKERS

As soon as you get in, on your right hand side you can find the lockers tent. It’s our version of a cloakroom where you can leave your stuff and come back to them throughout the day. Lockers are easily accessible and come in two sizes.

INFO POINT

Right opposite the lockers, to your left there is our main hub – the Info Point. Our friendly staff here can help you with pretty much anything you may need assistance with, please don’t hesitate to come back here for help throughout the day or make yourself known to them when you enter.

TOKENS

We operate a cashless site – which means you will need to purchase tokens to be able to buy drinks on the bars. The tokens booths are located half way through to the Bridge stage – just make your way down underneath the bridge and look out for big signs which will take you to your right. 

FIRST AID / WELFARE

This is located nearby the tokens area. You can come here whenever you will need time out, a friendly person to talk to or any type of medical assistance.

UPPER MEADOW

This is a grassed area. On your left, you will now see the entrance to the Upper Meadow where the Junction 2 Main Stage is. There are also some food stalls and seating facilities. The area is set on a football pitch so is grassy and flat.

LOWER MEADOW

This is a grassed area. Further down across the Upper Meadow you can find the Lower Meadow area with the Sonus and Warehouse stages, lots of seating (benches as well as hammocks), and another food village. We have some tasty food on offer which caters for allergies and various dietary preferences. More information about our traders can be found on our website prior to the event.

THE WOODS

This is a grassed area. Between the two meadows and the bridge we have a lovely set of woodland pathways with a hidden Woods Stage. Ground here can get very muddy and slippery in poor weather conditions. We have put woodchip down on some of the paths to dry and keep them dry and not too slippery.

THE BRIDGE

And finally, our most iconic stage under the motorway bridge. Head down underneath the motorway and across the river. This is on uneven hardstanding. Please mind that the hill leading to the Bridge is very steep and you might need assistance to access it. If you’re a wheelchair user and haven’t got assistance with you, just ask a member of staff to help you. There is a one way system in operation to access the Bridge stage over the river, and there are two bridges to access this stage. To access the stage you will go over a specially built temporary pontoon bridge on the left hand side as you look at the stage. To exit the stage then you will be leaving over an old existing bridge. Both have ramped access.

JUNCTION 2 ETHOS

ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

Junction 2 Environmental Policy

 

At Junction 2 we realise that the importance of sustainable practice is now greater than ever and that large-scale events should aim to set a blueprint for other industries in the UK. We are therefore introducing a number of rules and policies that will help us establish a forward-thinking environment that will reduce the harmful impact and inspire our customers and co-workers to think about their actions in these crucial times.

The below shows most of the different things that we do at our shows and in our office BUT we are always open to other solutions and ideas and we would love to answer any additional questions you have.

Staff Water on Site

Pre-2018, during build, show day and break staff were using around 10,000 plastic bottles of water on site. We were saddened by this so we bought a load of reusable metal bottles with clips on (to attach to belt loops etc). Staff now have to use these and to make things easier for them we have a water-monitor to top their drinks up so they don’t have to go thirsty!

Recycling

In the UK this is a complex business. You can segregate waste efficiently, but depending on where it is taken to depends on whether it actually gets recycled or just ends up in landfill. We find out as much information from whichever cleaning company we use to make sure we use the best materials for their particular waste plant. There is a lot of chat about ‘compostable’ or ‘biodegradable’ materials; these are actually just as harmful as plastic if they end up in landfill, there are very few composting sites across the UK (and think of the fuel to get them there), and things biodegrading actually produce a lot of harmful gases.

Waste Collecting & Disposal

We work with one of the best waste companies, they actually care about the environment. They are more expensive than other companies, but that is because they need more staff to separate the rubbish backstage. They recycle as much as they possibly can. Many others claim to do this, we have found that they don’t. We even went to a recycling plant to understand how it works and what the limitations are.

Traders

All of them use Vegware or similar products (better than Styrofoam type products) and wooden cutlery. We work with them on site to ensure they segregate their own waste back of house. Our cleaning teams are in contact with them throughout the event to ensure everyone’s working to meet the goals that we set. Their food, packaging and cutlery is then sent to a facility that has industrial composting systems. Yay!!

 

Signage

All our signage is reused from show to show (even if it doesn’t fit with ‘brand guidelines’). We have now started to become more conscious of this and design things that are more generic. All the signage & scrim is put up using reusable cable ties or toggles (where possible – although this will be in most places).

 

Set

We reuse as much décor as possible. If something becomes tired, we try and repurpose it and use it for something else. We are currently using the Labyrinth giant heads as noise baffles in our echoey meeting room!

 

Toilets

Our onsite compost toilets provided by Loowatt are totally waterless and money raised is used to build toilets for deprived communities in Madagascar.

 

Bars

We no longer use single use plastic cups for pints, 1/2 pints and spirits from our bars. From 2019 customers will use hard, reusable cups when purchasing a drink. We are still working on a solution for selling shots. We tried reusable cups previously at another event of ours and found it was just a greenwashing* solution and that we ended up throwing a greater weight of plastic in landfill due to cups shattering when thrown on the floor. We have spent days researching and we have found our preferred cup researching supplier, who is giving us cups that can truly be re-used many times. We have also been researching alternative drink containers, like wine in cans or big bags. It is our aim to try and find the best solution across all aspects of the bar. This is no easy feat. Even alternative straws are greenwashing, the best thing to do is just not use a straw! We are also encouraging our customers to only purchase 1 plastic water bottle (or bring their own in) and refill their bottle from the bars and water points on site.

 

 

Travel & Vehicles

The vast majority of our customers travel to the site via public transport, reducing their carbon footprint. In order to check the actual ratio, and see how we can improve, we intend to survey our customers on entry. We encourage the artists to travel via public transport where possible (can you guys help us with this, and ask your favourite artists to reduce the flights they take and to reduce their taxi and car use when in a city?). We have further introduced a no-idling policy (ie turn your engine off when not moving) on site for site vehicles.

 

Carbon Donations

We are encouraging customers to pay a carbon donation when buying their ticket to help offset their carbon footprint for the event. It would be good if artists did this too. Again, help us to encourage them by contacting them on social media.

 

Power

Currently all power on site is provided by efficient diesel generators but we are looking into tapping into the National Grid to reduce emissions. We will be monitoring our generators usage throughout the construction and event period to give us more stats. www.instagram.com/ryandinham[/caption]

We will run an estimate on carbon footprint generated by the event deliveries. All of the above will help us better understand the impact we have and the goals we need to hit to achieve a neutral carbon footprint in the future.

 

Charity Donations

Money raised from our guest list donations are split between various local community projects, with one of these being Hedgehog Hotels. Hedgehogs are an important part of the natural ecosystem, yet their numbers are diminishing rapidly. Hedgehog hotels provide a safe place for hedgehogs to build a home, hibernate in the winter and raise hoglets come spring. Following the 2019 event, Junction 2 will sponsor the build of a number of hotels in Boston Manor Park to ensure their safe environment is preserved regardless of the event we introduced. In the past we have also given money to a lovely Forest School, this is important for the environment too as it means the next generation can have a connection to wildlife, plants and nature.

 

*Greenwashing is the circulation of unsubstantiated and/or misleading claims that a company, its services, and its practices, are more environmentally friendly than they actually are.

In our case, we have worked with companies in the past who have claimed that their reusable or biodegradable / compostable cups are better for the environment. However, due to the people’s current single-use and throwaway attitude, the easily-breakable cups, and waste management companies who refuse to sift through bins to fish out the OK cups, the ‘reusable’ cups only end up being used once before ending up in a bin, and subsequently landfill. Also, due to lack of services, the biodegradable solution cannot actually be carried out. In other words, while the idea sounds great to the public, in many cases the reality behind the scenes is immensely different.”

FOOD

We hand pick suppliers who share our environmental and sustainable values. Whilst we acknowledge there is still room for improvement, we take pride that our food vendors are increasingly sourcing their products responsibly.

SAFE SPACES

We inherently believe that going clubbing and attending festivals should not only be a positive, life-affirming experience for everybody – but should be a “safe haven” for people to be themselves and respect others. Everybody is treated as equal, regardless of their ethnicity, gender-identity, sexual-orientation, age, faith or disability. We encourage anybody who feels uncomfortable or intimidated to approach our staff with confidence. Discretion assured. Discrimination and harassment of any form goes against everything we stand for, and it won’t be tolerated at any of our events. More information can be found on the Ask Angela posters around site.

CHARITABLE CAUSES

As with all of our shows, we have a large number of industry guestlist coming to J2. In exchange for complimentary admission, we ask for a £15 donation to a charitable endeavour of our choosing. We chose to assist charities within the local area and on the grounds of who we believe most needs our support around the time of the event. On this occasion we will be partnering with the Hounslow Council and Friends of Boston Manor. They are responsible for the maintenance and restoration of Boston Manor House and the surrounding grassland. In this case, we will be fundraising with a very specific project in mind. So if you are fortunate to find yourself on the guestlist, please remember to bring £15 cash for donation upon arrival. We will be shedding more light on this project across our social media channels as it comes to fruition.

TICKETING

By purchasing a ticket, you are buying a ticket to the event as a whole, not a specific act or room. Event management reserves the right to limit access to some rooms based on the safety and capacity of individual areas.

Signing up for presale tickets does not guarantee you will be able to purchase tickets for an event. An event may sell out on presale if there is high demand.

Tickets to Junction 2 Events should only be purchased from one of Junction 2’s official ticketing outlets, a list of which can be found below. Junction 2 holds no responsibility for fake or duplicated tickets and holders of such will not be allowed to enter the event.

Not all Events’ tickets will be sold via all the outlets listed below.

Junction 2 strongly discourages selling tickets anywhere else than via resale services available through Ticket Tannoy, Resident Advisor, Dice, Sandbag and Skiddle.

Tickets purchased by under 18s and those who are not old enough to enter the venue, will not be refunded or exchanged.

Tickets cannot be exchanged or refunded unless the Event is cancelled, rescheduled or there has been a material change of the Event. A ‘material’ change is a change which, in Junction 2’s reasonable opinion, makes the Event materially different to the Event that the Customer, taken generally, could reasonably expect. Changes to performance times or line-up shall not be considered a material alteration. A material alteration is judged, in Junction 2’s absolute discretion, by reference to the nature and billing of each event. The event is judged, in Junction 2’s absolute discretion, by reference to the overall theme rather than the individual act scheduled to appear. No scheduled acts may be considered as headline acts, regardless of their relative fame or prominence in the billing, and so cancellation by an artist will not entitle to a refund, regardless of their position on the bill.

Refunds can only be claimed within 30 days of the Event date.

Photographs are taken during our events and Junction 2 uses photographs for promotional and brand awareness purposes. A clear signage in venues informs attendees that photos and filming is allowed at our events. If you happen to see a photo of yourself on our social media or other channels that you wish to be removed please get in touch (contact details provided at the bottom) and we will action this.

Some tickets may have time restrictions. If you fail to adhere to these you may be denied entry to the event or charge a fee.

UTB Events Ltd has no general duty to deal with found property and, in particular, has no legal obligation to collect found goods.

UTB Events Ltd only accepts responsibility for items lost, found and brought to the Information Point during an event or item/s found post-event onsite by one of its staff or agents.

UTB Events Ltd accepts no responsibility for item/s that have been arranged by a person who lost and a person who found to be returned to the Information Point but have not arrived at the Information Point.

Should a staff member and a person who lost an item choose to arrange return between themselves and fail, UTB Events Ltd accepts no responsibility for such arrangements.

Contact details for lost property are provided on every event website as well as above. All emails are responded to as soon as possible, however, considering the number of emails regarding lost property received after every event, UTB Events Ltd may not be able to respond instantly.

Property that is lost and found during events will be kept for a period of 4 weeks, after which it will be disposed of.

In order for a property to be reclaimed, a detailed description of the item/s and/or proof of ID (identity) is necessary.

UTB Events Ltd will not mail/courier or insure during transit any reclaimed property back to the presumed owner unless they send the appropriate fees to cover packing and postage, and any insurance during transit stipulated by the claimant. All items are sent at owner’s risk.

Note UTB Events Ltd will NOT automatically arrange insurance during transit. Insurance during transit will only be arranged if it is specifically requested in writing at the time of reclaiming found property – and then UTB Events Ltd will only arrange the insurance that is made available as “standard” by the carrier chosen by UTB Events Ltd. UTB Events Ltd will not be liable for the suitability of the insurance, and for the value stated in writing by the person claiming the property.
