A MAJOR free music event has been given clearance for a second year in Huddersfield - despite objections from locals residents.
The Timeless Festival has been cleared by Kirklees Council's Licensing and Safety Committee.
The gig will take place on Saturday, September 6, in Ravensknowle Park.
Objectors complained that last year's party was too loud and some revellers were abusive.
This time, the licence was granted with special conditions.
Residents will be handed a complaints hotline number to contact about noise or people's behaviour.
Two stages will be set up in the historic park, playing music between noon and 9.30pm.
Festival co-ordinator Pat Fulgoni, who also runs the local record label Chocolate Fireguard, said: "We will be working closely with people in the area to see how this event can be made even more enjoyable for all."
The festival costs about £25,000 to stage and last year attracted an estimated 2,500 visitors .
It is funded by Kirklees Council and the Dalton, Rawthorpe and Moldgreen Regeneration Programme (Dram).
Chris Peltier, Dram manager, added: "We hope that this will be an annual event. It reflects the positive diversity of the area."
