Australian promoter Peter Noble is threatening legal action against Byron council over an extra Bluesfest performance by Bob Dylan.
When Dylan's Easter Monday performance sold out, Noble applied to extend Bluesfest to six days, allowing a second Dylan appearance on April 26. But the council says it won't make a decision until February.
Noble says he needs a decision by mid-January to lock in the second show "or [Dylan] will make other plans."
He says the lack of an extra date would cost local businesses $2 million.
Byron Shire Mayor Jan Barham argued they had 30 applications to process and that Bluesfest had to wait its turn.
But if a staff report came through before, they'd try to process it in January.
