Live Nation (Music) UK Ltd. v LB Haringey (Wireless Festival, Finsbury Park)
Successfully defended (at appeal) LB Haringey’s decision to impose stricter noise conditions on Wireless Festival following a review brought by the Friends of Finsbury Park. The application was first considered by the Council at a well-attended hearing which took place over 2 evenings and considered detailed expert noise reports (Asitha acted as legal advisor to the Committee at this stage).
The Council amended and added to the conditions, as well as reducing the event hours on the Sunday by 30mins. The appeal brought by Live Nation was eventually negotiated at Court and endorsed by District Judge McPhee following a hearing.
