Fatboy Slim party gets licence

New Year’s Day bash given the go ahead

Fatboy Slim’s New Year’s Day beach party has been given a licence to take place.

Permission by Brighton and Hove City Council was not initally given for the bash, but that didn’t stop 20,000 tickets being snapped up within five hours of going at sale on November 2.

However on Thursday (November 23) the council voted to allow the Big Beach Boutique 3 taking place at Madeira Drive to go ahead.

The Policy and Resources Committee is set to consider the application on November 30, reports BBC NEWS.

As previously reported Fatboy Slim’s free Brighton beach party in July 2002 was heavily over-subscribed, with 250,000 people turning up for the bash.
