Scottish promoter EE Live has been given the go-ahead to bring its Terminal V (cap. 15,000) dance event back to Edinburgh’s Royal Highland Centre for the first time since the death of teenager Maya Nager at its Halloween show last year.
EE Live faced uncertainty about the event’s licensing agreements ahead of Terminal V’s planned return on 8-9 April with an announced line-up including Charlotte de Witte and Amelie Lens. However, Terminal V was granted its licence at a committee meeting in Edinburgh yesterday, 6 March.
EE Live, co-founded by Simon McGrath and Derek Martin, issued a statement in which it said it had taken a collaborative, multi-agency, approach to staging Terminal V since its inception five years ago.
“We work extremely hard with our partners to deliver a sector leading event, in terms of production and safety,” said Martin. “We are delighted with today’s result as it reflects how much thought and effort the team put in to ensuring Terminal V continues to lead the way in its field. We would like to thank our partners Police Scotland, City of Edinburgh Council, The Royal Highland Centre, JL Medical, Amvale, TLC Welfare Crew 2000 and The Loop plus many more for all of their hard work and continued support for the event. We are privileged to work with such a committed and talented team of professionals”.
