Festival-goer Elia Morrow said on Twitter: ‘On the last day of a major festival, surely the Met Police should have been more prepared for crowds. 

Finsbury Park has a single entrance. There is no pedestrian flow. The people being forced to scale high gates and trampling them.

The police stated that crowd concerns were the responsibility of event organizers and security.  

Elia Morrow stated that the people fighting to get over the shoving were climbing fences, and others crying out in panic.

Tommy Durbin told MailOnline: ‘I was there, and haven’t been treated like that by the police since the bad old days of being a football fan in the 80s. 

“Herded along narrow gaps, police were completely surprised at the number of people there.” Disgusting.’

MailOnline spoke to Julie Cavalli, who said that her daughter was at the event and called her at 3pm, informing her that there wasn’t anyone checking tickets.

Ms Cavalli stated that she was worried because many people were simply pushing past security checkpoints and not being checked.

She said that she wanted to make sure no one was doing anything illegal. It is an issue of security and a potential incident.

One attendee stated that they were stuck for several hours outside of the venue.

They said that they saw people “passing out”, dehydrated and being abused with horses by officers.

A reported emergency prompted all passengers to evacuate Finsbury Park underground Station.

Paula Tucker posted a criticism of the event organization on Twitter.

‘Finsbury Park utterly unsuitable for Wireless Festival — park gates shut, tube station closed, helicopter overhead for an hour,’ she wrote.

“Haringey Council cannot ignore residents’ needs and allow this to happen again.”

Another critic stated that Finsbury Park should have more security for the Wireless Festival. 

Nicole Barrett was able to leave the venue after her visit and said she would not return.

MailOnline was told that she found little or no security for some areas of the pen. She also claimed that the speakers had been blown, and many acts were either cancelled or late.

‘All in, about £1,000 was spent to come here to enjoy ourselves as a treat. It’s actually put me off coming next time, as the toilets reeked of ammonia from people’s urine —I felt like I was going to pass out.’ 

Metropolitan Police Force spokeswoman said the problem began today at 3pm when some people attempted to access the Wireless Festival entrance while others waited.

“As a precaution, the security personnel placed a temporary hold on admission to the event in order to maintain the safety of the people who were there. 

“This led to a significant crowd in the vicinity of the site.

“Officers supported security personnel with managing the crowd to ensure people safety.”

“We are continuing to work closely together with the event organizer and other partners to prevent any further disruption. We thank all those who were able to attend for their patience especially in hot weather.
