EIGHT nights of music are coming to a Huddersfield mill.
Afterparty has won permission to put on huge events at Bates Mill on Queen Street South.
World famous DJs Pete Tong and Armand van Helden have already performed at the venue this year.
Now Kirklees Council’s Licensing Panel has given Afterparty permission to put on up to 12 events in the next year.
Spokesman David Biddle said the group planned to stage at least eight shows, including one on New Year’s Eve.
Events would run from 10.30pm to 7am and would attract more than 1,000 people each. The next event is planned for Bank Holiday Sunday on August 24.
In his written submission to the panel, Mr Biddle said: “We want to continue putting on events in Huddersfield. What we’ve done so far has outweighed anything in the Leeds dance scene.”
He added that previous events like the Pete Tong performance had gone well.
Mr Biddle said: “We have proved that we can put on safe, trouble-free events. We have demonstrated our willingness to listen and take advice from all concerned parties and will continue to do so.”
The panel received one objection from a resident of nearby Orchard Terrace.
Allan Jones wrote to the council to complain about the noise of an event at Bates Mill earlier this year.
He said: “I was woken at about 1am by the noise of people shouting, traffic and an annoying thumping din which some people deem to be music. This disturbing and unreasonable noise continued until around 7.30am.
“I object to any further events taking place because my sleep would be disrupted. I am sure other residents would be disturbed by the constant noise.”
