Plans for a music festival for LGBT women in Derbyshire have been approved.
FemmeFest will take place from September 3rd - 6th at the same site as Y Not festival at Green View Farm in Pikehall.
The maximum capacity for the event will be two thousand people.
The district council called the event a 'massive opportunity' after it was approved at a licensing hearing on Tuesday June 8.
Fiona-Lisa Grant, who is setting up the festival, said it would provide a safe and secure event for other like-minded people.
When asked about the restriction of the festival to LGBT female attendees, a spokesperson for FemmeFest said:
"There are approximately 240 festivals in the UK that are open for any gender to attend."
"FemmeFest is the only music/dance festival that will provide a safe and secure space where lesbian, bi, transgender and queer women can meet like minded women and enjoy a weekend of music within a comfortable environment."
