Finsbury Park station opened in 1861 as part of the Great Northern Railway and, following a long and complicated history of many train lines and companies, is now one of North London's busiest transport interchanges, with rail services meeting the London Underground and two interconnected bus stations. Current services include those from King's Cross and Moorgate to Welwyn Garden City, Peterborough and Cambridge. Finsbury Park is also one of the closest stations to Arsenal's Emirates Stadium, and so can be incredibly busy on match days, with an Arsenal club shop located just outside the station. Also outside the station building is the bustling Seven Sisters Road, and Finsbury Park is named after the Victorian park that stands just to the north. Created between 1857 and 1869, the park is one of North London's most popular green spaces, with sporting facilities, gardens, a lake, cafe and playgrounds. It is also the venue for regular live music events in the summer.
Wireless Festival has taken place in nearby Finsbury Park since 2014, with world-class music acts such as Rihanna, Jay-Z and Stormzy gracing the stage. This year, Wireless Festival takes from Friday 5th to Sunday 7th July 2019, with Cardi B, Travis Scott and A$AP Rocky headlining the main stage.
Finsbury Park station is the closest train station to the festival site, just a couple of minutes' walk away. Be aware that with so many people descending on the area to attend, it can get very busy – make sure you plan in extra travel time during your journey so you don’t miss out on any of the music.
