Bristol band Massive Attack have announced plans for an outdoor concert to mark their homecoming to the city - where they started their musical career.
The event is planned for The Downs in September. It will be is the first time a major concert has been held there in 15 years.
However, some people have raised concerns about noise and traffic in the area - as yet some of the relevant permissions have not been granted.
A Bristol City Council spokesperson said: “The council has been asked to consider an event application for a large scale music event on the Downs in September. As with any event in this location, the application was first referred to the Downs Committee events sub group to discuss and decide whether or not permission be granted.Permission in principle for the event to take place was granted by the Downs Committee on the 11 April 2016."
Following this decision the organisers have begun a consultation with residents and relevant stakeholders. The event still requires premises licence and site permission approval.
