With Splendour in the Grass just over, thank god, I am going to come back home to sleep, quietly, without being disturbed by the extreme volume of ‘sound’ (bass and others).
I have tried to stay home, but it was unbearable, sickening (headache, nausea, earache) , and quite upsetting to hear that incessant noise! Impossible to read or listen to something else, other than Splendour in the Grass.
I understand and respect the need of youth to be entertained by the music of their choice. But why is this choice being imposed to everyone around, like a massive diktat of ‘loudness’? Does it need to be so overwhelmingly loud to be entertaining ?
Who is choosing the sound level and who is responsible and accountable for the physical disturbances of many residents around? I heard just before the fest that the sound was going to be checked And kept to the new sound level authorised. OK let’s be real and find out if this new level was acceptable to public and resident interest. Without mentioning birds, wildlife and all creatures who live in nature.
Hmm… I feel somebody did not asses the decent level of noise a healthy human or animal ear and body can cope with, or are we all dealing with deaf generation of technicians, organisers and politicians?
