MEAN FIDDLER SWALLOWED

The independence of Mean Fiddler is at an end: they've accepted a takeover from Clear Channel. Clear Channel and Irish company Gaiety's Hamsard joint-venture cash channel Hamsard has valued Mean Fiddler at a bit under forty million; it now means the NeoCon broadcasting-advertiser has got a 39% share of Glastonbury and all of Reading/Leeds Festivals.

The takeover still depends on MF shareholders giving their assent.
