Plans for a two huge festivals in a popular city park have been revealed in new council documents.

One of the city's largest parks, Hove Park, could play host to a series of concerts next year with tens of thousands of tickets expected to be sold.

The Hove Park Concert Series, along with the Ibiza Proms in the Park, have been named in an agenda item for outdoor events set to be discussed at the culture, heritage, sport, tourism and economic development committee on Thursday, September 14.

Up to 4,999 music fans could party into the evening next June as Ibiza Proms in the Park has been placed on the council's list of events set for approval at the meeting later this month.

The 50 piece orchestra will take to the stage on June 22 or 29, if councillors give it the go ahead.

The festival is planned to run at the end of August and Early September however specific dates have not yet been provided, and the name is a "working title."

In previous years, Hove Park has been used for community events and charity carnivals, but no music festivals of this scale as the document says 8,000 revellers could descend on the park.

While it is not yet clear who is behind the new Hove Park Concert Series, it joins a long list of events the comittee has to decide on, from Pride to the Brighton Marathon.

The committee decides whether council officers can enter into formal agreements with organisers to determine fees and support such as security and road closures.

But organisers of Ibiza Proms in the Park also have their eyes set on a different venue, with a capacity of up to 15,000.

In a statement written to the council, New Vision Events said: "A one day concert with a capacity of up to 15,000 attendees would feature, if able to locate at Black Rock as a high profile launch for this new and exciting meanwhile space in the city and would serve to bridge the gap from more modern musical styles currently well represented in the city with a more classical music element."

The executive director for economy, environment and culture at Brighton and Hove City Council Donna Chisholm said: "The first opportunity for the events team to begin utilising the new Black Rock site for events activity is 2024.

"Due to the uncertainty around completion dates, at this stage, the team haven’t presented any specific details of possible events but will provide a separate paper early next year to detail some possible programme options."

The Hove Park concert series has also joined in with hopes to move the event to Black Rock.
