Timings

The Kent Event Centre has said all of its car parks will open at noon on Sunday, July 22.

The arena however does not open until 4pm but organisers say there will be drinking water, toilets, shade and catering concessions in holding areas for those waiting for the arena to open.

Little Mix's support acts are due on stage from 6pm with Little Mix set to appear before the Kent crowd at 8.30pm.

The concert is expected to finish at around 9.45pm but organisers are keen to stress that these are all approximate timings and could be subject to change.

For those considering arriving a little later, there is no time limit on entry to the arena, says the Kent Event Centre, but the box office is expected to close around 9pm so all collections must have been made by then.

What can you take into the concert?

No professional cameras, video cameras or audio recording devices are allowed.

And you cannot take any food and drink into the concert arena with you - but there will be various refreshment outlets to purchase food and drink from.

The concert is standing-only so deckchairs, camping chairs, any form of folding seat and picnic blankets cannot be taken in with you.

Leaving the concert

The Kent Event Centre is keen to remind people that this concert is a sell-out with 30,000 people attempting to enter and exit the site on Detling Hill and that concert goers should come prepared with provisions in their cars in the event of a long wait.
A message on its facebook page reads: "Please bear in mind this is a SOLD OUT 30,000 people concert. Therefore entry and exit will take a long time so we advise to bring provisions in the car."
