This comes after it was revealed that Wireless Festival organisers would be appealing restrictions placed on the event by the council.
Last year, it was confirmed that the bash had been granted a licence to remain in London’s Finsbury Park but the council asked performers not to swear or wear offensive clothes. Local group Friends of Finsbury Park, which is made up of residents in the area, previously called for the festival to be moved. They complained about noise levels, drug taking and anti-social behaviour at the festival.
But Haringey Council decided to change the conditions of the licence rather than take it away. The full licencing report from Haringey Council can be read here. Live Nation then submitted an appeal over the council’s decision to Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court.
Earlier this month, Haringey Council agreed to demands by Live Nation not to have strict noise limits at this year’s event. After a hearing at Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court, Haringey Council said noise levels imposed by the committee had “not been increased, but would be measured in a different way”.
In their appeal, Live Nation argued: “It will be seriously damaging to the commerciality and attractiveness of the event. Headline artists of international repute will not be interested in finishing their performance at 9.30pm before it is even dark enough for an effective light show as part of the climax the act.
“The audience will complain about early closing and the reputation of the event and the premises licence holder will suffer”.
