To provide supporting weight to any future applications to the Council / Downs Commitee to hold mini-festivals / music concerts on the Downs.

Background information

The recent Massive Attack gig has demonstrated that it is possible to hold music concerts on Durham Downs without causing any significant detriment to the environment or local residents. This petition requests that the Council consider making it an annual event.
Similar sized cities in the UK eg leeds, Reading seem able to host much larger music events and as the recent event shows there is certainly an appetite for it.
Given that the Council also needs the revenue such events would generate, it would seem like a win win for all Bristol residents.
