GEORGE EZRA wowed crowds at Ascot after Britain’s richest raceday, but the event was overshadowed by security complaints.

The ‘Budapest’ singer took to the stage to perform for the after-party at the QIPCO British Champions Day, the final flat racing day of the season. 

But the event was marred for some fans who’d purchased tickets and were allegedly refused entry.

Frustrated fans took to social media to vent their frustration, having been blocked by security when trying to enter the performance tent. 

Some questioned why the event was not held in the open, thus allowing more people in.

Ben Waterhouse (@thinbenman) tweeted: “Great day @Ascot ruined by the shambles with #GeorgeEzra No way to get in, no advice from stewards”

Another user said: “@Ascot terrible organisation for @george_ezra afterparty would an open air stage not of been a better idea?”

Paul Offer (@paul_offer) tweeted: “False advertising !! How can you advertise something that hardly anyone can see, only black mark of the day !!”

David Bowman @IDG_David: “What a complete and utter shambles this was - half family inside and half outside and security staff were a disgrace”

John Ruddick (@ruddick_j): “Absolute shambles, over zealous doormen and very little organisation.”

Claire Stride (@claire_stride): “Bought tickets in anticipation of George Ezra only to be refused entry. Not happy at all.”

Nick Smith, Director of Racing and Communications, Ascot Racecourse, said: "It was a good natured day – in a crowd of 32,000 people there will always be a few minor incidents and they were just that.

“The after party was supposed to take place in an open venue which would have allowed many more people close access to the concert but this plan had to be shelved due to near-on gale force winds.

"The site was therefore enclosed with solid walls and there was some crowding on entry. This was resolved as quickly as possible but naturally entry had to be controlled and staggered for safety reasons.”
