During Monday’s meeting, DUP alderman Billy Ball said that he had concerns about the suitability of Pink and Lady Gaga tribute acts appearing at the family festival, describing them as “not conducive to the borough”, and asked that his objection be recorded. No other council members appeared to have a problem with the acts. Indeed, Deputy Mayor Tommy Kirkham pointed out that around 800 people of all ages had enjoyed the Pink tribute act during the recent Twelfth celebrations in the Rathcoole estate. The inclusion of both acts in the line-up was noted.
