The future of a popular music festival has been thrown into doubt after organisers were refused permission to use a public park.

The West End Fiesta event was held in Kelvingrove Park for the first time last year.

Organisers had hoped to hold the event in the park again this year but have been turned down by Glasgow City Council.

Licence bosses are believed to have taken the decision due to the impact it would have on local residents.

The West End Fiesta ran into complications following its launch - which featured acts including Nile Rodgers, Earth, Wind & Fire and The Pointer Sisters.

Ticketholders complained about lengthy queues for food and drink, and poor sound quality during the two-day festival in June.

Organisers were forced to allow those attending the second day to bring supplies into the park.

The event is due to take place again this year on June 29 and 30, but a location is yet to be confirmed.

A post on The Fiesta's media channels in February indicated that details would be released 'soon' with tickets for the event already on sale.

A spokesman for Glasgow City Council, said: "An application for this event was received but permission to use the park was never confirmed in this instance.

"Applications for permission to use our parks are always looked at on their own individual merits and that will continue to be the case.

"We always seek to strike an appropriate balance between the cultural value events bring to the city and the impact events can have on residents who live close to where they are held."

The West End Fiesta has been contacted for comment.

Following last year's event, organisers said: "We have listened to all feedback re the VIP experience and are committed to improving that next year, and are currently developing an improved package.

"Discussions are also already underway with some exciting new food partners who will come on board to enhance the experience and offering at next year’s event.

"We have lots of new plans and ideas and look forward to implementing them and to sharing them with you over the next few weeks and months.

"We are 100 per cent committed to making next year bigger and better, and we thank you for the support in helping us to do that."
