Objections to the two-day KISSBeach music festival on Great Yarmouth's seafront will be heard when licensing officers meet today.
Live Nation, the promoter behind major festivals including Latitude, Reading and Leeds, is seeking a premises licence for the KISSBeach festival taking place on the beach on June 29 and 30.
Various acts - including Tinie Tempah, Dizzee Rascal, Rizzle Kicks, Katy B, Rita Ora and Chase and Status - have already been confirmed and tickets are on sale.
However, Great Yarmouth Borough Council's licensing sub-committee, which meets today to decide on the application, has received several letters of objection, with concerns ranging from the event being a 'public nuisance' and 'detrimental to the tourist trade' to fears it will result in an increase in criminal behaviour.
