This is the shocking moment a security guard slapped a woman to the ground in front of stunned onlookers at Wireless Festival.
Video footage shows two security guards being targeted by a man and a woman at the music event in Crystal Palace, south London.
The crowd watches on as the woman, dressed in pink, is smacked in the face and thrown to the floor.
The chaos began when the woman shoved one of the stewards who has his arms outstretched towards her in a defensive position.
Meanwhile, another guard can be seen on top of a male reveller who is on the ground. It is unknown why he is being restrained.

The line-up at the festival in Crystal Palace featured artists including Skepta, Future, Giggs, Megan The Stallion and Meek Mill.
It comes after US rapper A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie missed his performance after he was arrested, allegedly over an incident some two years ago.
The musician, real name Julius Dubose, was due to take to the stage at the star-studded festival on Saturday afternoon.
But following his arrest over the weekend, organisers announced the 25-year-old would not be performing as planned and that the set would be rescheduled.
A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie then shed light on his absence in an Instagram post, which now no longer appears on his account.
He told fans: ‘Smh sorry to everyone who came out to see me at Wireless, London police locked me up before I went on stage for something I was accused of 2 years ago.

‘The arrest was made by Met Police officers at the request of Greater Manchester Police.
‘The man was released on bail to attend a Greater Manchester police station at a later date.’
The Met and Wireless Festival have been contacted for comment.
