LATEST: New York's Field Day FESTIVAL will go ahead as planned this weekend (07JUN03) after an 11th-hour offer from the powers at New Jersey's GIANTS STADIUM.

Organisers of the event, which will feature Radiohead, the Beastie Boys and Beck among others, feared the festival would have to be scrapped after losing their battle for a permit to stage the show in Suffolk County, New York.

Some acts have dropped out of the show but the headliners are intact. The show - which was to be a two-day event - will take place on Saturday only.
