High-profile gigs by stars including Madonna will go ahead as planned in London's Hyde Park this summer after a decision by councillors.
But from next year the number of concerts at the outdoor venue will be reduced from 13 to nine, following complaints about noise.
The number of people attending events will be reduced from 80,000 to 65,000 and in some cases 50,000, again from 2013, Westminster Council's licensing sub-committee ruled.
The number of concerts to be held came into question after residents in well-to-do Knightsbridge and Belgravia complained about noise.
