A legacy of its own
You could say Finsbury Park has a somewhat contradictory history, known as a location for pacifist meetings during the First World War and used as a military training ground during the Second World War. Yet the park dates back even further. During the mid-18th century, the first tea room opened in the park, becoming a location for Londoners to escape the smog of the city centre - not so different from today! Development continued over the years as a lake, shooting and archery ranges, and a pub were built until eventually becoming an official park in 1869. After falling into dilapidation throughout the late 20th century, a £5 million Heritage Lottery Fund was made in 2003. The park now contains a running track, a soft ball field, tennis courts, multiple children's play areas and cafés. In fact, it was in the swinging sixties that Finsbury Park became the venue it's known as today; from the sixties onward it has played host to plenty of musical royalty. The famous park is surely out to continue this musical legacy today, and you can play your part in it by buying or selling your Finsbury Park tickets via StubHub today.
Summer vibes all around!
It's difficult to beat live music in the great outdoors with friends, family and the sun shining! During concerts and festivals, the best of London's street food vendors and breweries come along so you can sample their goods whilst the tunes play out, creating a simply unmissable atmosphere. One of the first of the park's well-known concerts came from Jimi Hendrix in 1967. Countless others have graced the greenery, including Sex Pistols, The Stone Roses, Arctic Monkeys and Iggy Pop. Finsbury Park was also host to the Rise Festival, a free anti-racism music festival held between 1996 and 2008, which was unfortunately stopped due to lack of funding. Nevertheless, Finsbury Park continues to attract the top musical talent from around the world and remains an iconic venue for concerts and festivals in a free, green and serene setting.
