LEGENDARY DJ Pete Tong performed in Huddersfield last night after a last-minute decision by councillors.
The massive town centre event was approved yesterday afternoon, less than eight hours before it was due to start.
The Afterparty night ran from 11pm to 7am at Bates Mill warehouse on Queen Street South near Huddersfield town centre.
World-renowned Tong headlined the event at the 1,300-capacity venue which was broadcast live on Radio 1 between 3am and 5am.
Kirklees Council’s Licensing Panel gave the go-ahead yesterday afternoon despite complaints about the possible noise from some residents of the nearby 1535 flats complex on Firth Street.
Chairwoman Clr Christine Iredale praised the organisers for putting on stewards to encourage revellers away from the apartments.
She told organiser Dave Biddle: “We could see absolutely no reason why the licence shouldn’t be granted.
“Best of luck. We hope you have a great night and mention us on Radio 1!”
Mr Biddle spoke of his relief at the last-minute go-ahead.
“I’m over the moon,’’ he said. “I nearly cried when the councillors told me it could go ahead.
“We’ve worked so hard to put everything in place to make the event run smoothly. It would have been such a shame if it couldn’t have gone ahead.
“I just want to phone my mum!”
