A significant police operation will be put in place to help ensure that people attending the concert remain safe as Local Policing Superintendent Bobby Singleton said:“Police want everyone attending this year’s concerts to enjoy the music, have a good time, but most importantly, to stay safe.
 
“We are also encouraging those who are planning on attending the concerts to plan their journey in advance. Designated car parking has been allocated at the King’s Hall Complex, with designated coach parking at the ‘Fruit Market’ Boucher Road. For those using taxis, the taxi pick-up point after each event will be Apollo Road.
 
“Anyone planning on driving to the event is advised to park their vehicle legally and to ensure that it is not obstructing the driveway of a residential property. Also, if you are planning on drinking at the concert, please do not drive. It only takes one drink to impair your decision making ability. The only right decision is to leave the car at home if you’re drinking.
 
“If you are going to drink, please do so responsibly. Enjoy the concert, but look out for each other too.”
 
Julie-Anne Corr Johnston, Chair of People and Communities Committee in Belfast City Council said: “Ensuring the health and safety of all the concert goers is of primary importance to Belfast City Council. Council officers have worked with the concert organisers, PSNI and emergency services to put measures in place to manage health and safety, noise, litter, on-street drinking and to ensure the concert is enjoyable and safe for both those attending, and local residents.”
