More security fencing for Leeds Festival?

More security fencing for Leeds Festival?
Leeds Festival, the popular music event, may be looking to install more security fencing as reports suggest bosses want to increase its capacity.

Held in Bramham Park, the event's management want to allow just under 90,000 people to enjoy the weekend, the Yorkshire Evening Post reports. The current maximum capacity is 69,999.

According to the newspaper, a report by Leeds City Council explains that Festival Republic, the organiser, wants to increase this maximum by 20,000.

If it goes ahead, it will be rolled out over a four-year period, with an extra 5,000 being added on each year.

The report comes after a positive analysis of this year's festival praised its traffic management plan. Previous festivals have been beset by congestion problems.
Additionally, West Yorkshire Police noted that arrests were down this year at 21, compared to 39 in 2009.

According to Leeds Music Scene, some tickets for 2011 will be made available from December 1st this year. Acts rumoured to be appearing include Foo Fighters and Everything Everything.ADNFCR-3337-ID-800241323-ADNFCR
