The organiser of a grime music festival is looking to overturn a bid to impose tighter restrictions amid fears it could drive the event out of business.

Live Nation has lodged an appeal against extra conditions imposed by Haringey council to clamp down on excessive noise and other disturbances linked to the Wireless Festival, which is held every year at Finsbury Park.

The events firm says limiting sound levels and closing the event early on Sundays mean Wireless would no longer be commercially viable.

Haringey Council stopped short of revoking Live Nation’s licence in October but imposed a raft of extra conditions designed to address neighbours’ concerns.

It followed 67 complaints from people living in nearby houses about noise, anti-social behaviour and other problems.

The council amended the licensing conditions to tighten noise limits and ensure performances finish at 9.30pm on Sunday – 30 minutes earlier than the previously-agreed time.

But in a notice of appeal submitted to Highbury Magistrates’ Court on November 16, Live Nation objected to the more stringent conditions.

The document states: “Wireless Festival is unlikely to be commercially viable or practically feasible with such bass levels or with such sound levels on the adjoining Seven Sisters Road.

“Headline artists will be deterred from appearing and the enjoyment of the audience will be materially diminished.”

It adds that the earlier Sunday finishing time “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 of the act.”

The organisers of Wireless Festival sold 135,000 tickets for this year’s event, which was held on July 6 to 8, making it one of the biggest live music events in the UK.

A spokeswoman for Haringey Council said: “As this is going to court, it would not be appropriate to comment.”
