Festival Info

FUNK THE FAMILY – 18 June 2017



Food And Drink

We have been super busy behind the scenes selecting some amazing, local food stalls and the range is vast: from Indian to Mexican to Italian to English, plus there are several vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options. On site, we also have several fully licensed bars serving a wide range of drinks, from craft beers to cocktails, soft drinks to cider. Only food and drink purchased on the festival site may be consumed on the festival site.



We are proud to announce we have invested in a raised disability viewing platform at this year’s festival. We have a great production team and have been busy making our site as wheelchair-user friendly as possible. This means our festival-goers who are disabled or deaf can enjoy fantastic views of our brilliant main stage acts. In addition, we can confirm there are many facilities located on easily-accessible, flat ground (grass) at Hove Park.



Sorry, no dogs. We love animals at FTF Towers but our festival isn’t suitable for them.

Only food and drink purchased on site may be consumed on site. Please see our Food & Drink info.

Babies (non-walkers) are free to enter but must still have a ticket for our capacity limits.
