A music fan who lashed out at a security worker at last year’s Kendal Calling music festival has admitted assault.
Tony Harrison, 26, swung his hand at the worker while he was holding a beer can, Carlisle Crown Court heard.
The victim needed three stitches to a cut on his face.
The attack happened after Harrison and two of his friends were stopped on their way into the festival near Penrith in July last year because they were not wearing the wrist band to show they had paid.
Harrison, from Skelmersdale, was sentenced to 150 hours of unpaid work, and told to pay £1,500 in costs, £200 compensation and a £60 victim surcharge.
