The Carling Weekend: Leeds Festival will go ahead at the Temple Newsam Park site following the granting of the festival licence at today's Magistrates Court hearing.
Organisers the Mean Fiddler appealed against the original decision to deny the licence by Leeds City Council, made at a meeting on 18th June. Today's judgement means that the festival will return to Temple Newsam Park for it's fourth year.
Mean Fiddler Managing Director, Melvin Benn, is looking forward to bringing three days of the best music in the world to West Yorkshire and the fantastic Temple Newsam Park site. He added :-
"This is obviously fantastic news for the festival and for the thousands of fans that have already bought the tickets and those that no doubt will rush to do so now. The confidence that the fans have shown in our ability to overturn what they also saw as a bizarre decision was very heartening and they and we can now look forward to a great weekend."
